PID treatment: If low abdominal or pelvic pain is gone and other symptoms also have cleared up (e.g., vaginal discharge), you can safely assume your PID is gone and probably no further treatment is needed. It is nonsense that doctors "here" (it says you're in Illinois!) do not do pelvic exams, and PID can’t be accurately Diagnosed without doing a pelvic exam. Find a proper doctor or clinic.
