Answer

The diagnosis of endometritis is usually based on clinical findings, such as fever and lower abdominal pain (see Clinical Presentation).

Most cases of endometritis, including those following cesarean delivery, should be treated in an inpatient setting. For mild cases following vaginal delivery, oral antibiotics in an outpatient setting may be adequate (see Treatment and Management, as well as Medication).
