Hi everyone, I'm posting here today because I have a couple of questions regarding chlamydia and PID. After multiple hospital visits for excruciating lower abdominal pain, I was finally told that I have chlamydia. I'm not entirely sure how long I've had it, but I'm assuming it's been quite a while. When I went to the gynecologist later that day, I was also diagnosed with PID and started on two separate antibiotics (dioxycylene and flagyl), to be used for 14 days with a followup appointment in a week. 

Basically, I'm wondering how soon I can expect to see any improvement in the pain, if that's at all possible to know. It's the worst pain I've ever had and I'm not sure how much longer I can handle this. I'm also wondering if intravenous antibiotics would be more likely to yield faster results, partially because I'm now sick enough that I can no longer eat or sleep due to the PID. I'm planning on calling my doctor in the morning to discuss all of this with her, but if anyone else has been through the same sort of thing and can offer any advice, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm honestly really scared. 

Thanks so much!

    If you are in this much pain you should go back to the ER. Perhaps they can at last give you something for the pain until you can see your doctor in the morning?

    They did give me a prescription for Vicodin, but it’s just not working. It helps for about an hour and then just completely stops. Plus, I think the ER is somewhat hesitant to give me anything stronger because I’m 18. I know that they don’t generally like giving younger people pain medicine.

    When I had PID I needed industrial strength painkillers and triple antibiotics.

    They’re probably putting me in the hospital today since I can’t keep the antibiotics down, so hopefully I’l get the industrial strength painkillers. I really need them, this is terrible.
