PID treatment: You have asked at least 3 questions about treatment of your PID. Those antibiotics will be effective against gonorrhea, chlamydia, and all the other bacteria typically involved in PID. Follow your doctor's advice about the best treatment in your particular case. There's no point in trying to get more advice on this forum. The answers won't change and you MUST discuss with your own doctor.
