STD (mainly untreated Chlamydia or gonorrhea) is the main preventable cause of Pelvic inflammatory disease. Women can protect themselves from Pelvic inflammatory disease by taking action to prevent STDs or by getting early treatment if they do get an STD.
There is no over-the-counter treatment for Pelvic inflammatory disease. Usually, Pelvic inflammatory disease can be cured with antibiotics. Most women can have outpatient treatment. If you are treated as an outpatient, you must take your medicine just the way your doctor tells you to. If you don't take all the pills, your symptoms will get worse and you may have to go to the hospital. A few days after you start taking the medicine, your doctor will want to see you for a checkup.
Pelvic inflammatory disease is a general term that refers to infection of the uterus (womb), fallopian tubes (tubes that carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus) and other reproductive organs. It is a common and serious complication of some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), especially chlamydia and gonorrhea. Pelvic inflammatory disease can damage the fallopian tubes and tissues in and near the uterus and ovaries. Untreated Pelvic inflammatory disease can lead to serious consequences including infertility, ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in the fallopian tube or elsewhere outside of the womb), abscess formation, and chronic pelvic pain.
Typically dental hygienists use special instruments to clean (debride) teeth below the gumline and disrupt any plaque growing below the gumline. This is a standard treatment to prevent any further progress of established periodontitis. Studies show that after such a professional cleaning (periodontal debridement), bacteria and plaque tend to grow back to pre-cleaning levels after about 3-4 months. Hence, in theory, cleanings every 3-4 months might be expected to also prevent the initial onset of periodontitis.
