Although chlamydia is a common trigger of PID
, other bacteria often are responsible for symptoms. Also, even when PID
is cured completely, pain itself can take a long time to clear up, sometimes several weeks.
Your doctor is being appropriately cautious, and it is reasonable for you to be tested again. However, it will be extremely surprising if still positive for chlamydia. If there is continuing evidence of ongoing infection, your doc may prescribe still additional antibiotics.
