The treatment of salpingitis rests on the administration of antibiotics (often for periods of several weeks). The antibiotics selected are targeted to attack the most likely organism, and often provide broad coverage to include may different possible microbes. The sexual partner should obviously be evaluated, screened and treated appropriately, ensuring compliance with all medication and abstinence from sexual relations during the treatment period so as to prevent re-infection. Your physician will follow you closely so as to ensure a timely cure and thereby attempt to decrease the risks of permanent scarring of the tubes. Anti-inflammatories are often prescribed in association with antibiotics in an attempt to minimize inflammation and eventual scarring. A woman previously afflicted with salpingitis is never immunized against salpingitis. This infection can be contracted several times during a woman’s lifetime. Prevention is key.
At times, in the case of a severe or acute infection, hospitalization may be required. This permits the administration of intravenous antibiotics and is important in quickly treating serious form so salpingitis. The routine treatment of non-acute salpingitis entails antibiotics by mouth as mentioned previously.
