Both the antibiotic choice and duration of treatment are different for PID than they are for chlamydia. If you were diagnosed with PID, it is very important that you take all medication as prescribed and return frequently to your health care provider for follow up exams as directed.
Probably yes because these are 2 different conditions. It's true that that Chlamydia can be the cause of both but PID is more serious and should be treated longer. PID can also be caused by Gonorrhea, which may requires different antibiotic.
