In brief: Not necessarily
There's more info needed but usually a term pregnancy with an intrauterine infection (chorioamnionitis) needs delivery, usually induction & not necessarily surgery.
Earlier pregnancy may miscarry (septic abortion) and require antibiotics. If not pregnant, future pregnancies should not require c-section. I hope that helps. If you're currently pregnant, talk to your ob, they should be available 24/7.
