Initially, treatment of PID is through antibiotics to treat the initial infection - often physicians use multiple antibiotics in order to be certain the infection at the root of the problem is cured.

Recovery from PID itself is determined by the recovery time associated with treatment of the initial infection. However, the damage caused by PID is generally permanent.
