Mi have been diagnosed with PID will amoxycillin and zithromax be enough combination to cure pid? Or will I need different antibiotics?
Likely: Though the regimen you were prescribed isn't on the cdc's recommended list for outpatient treatment of pid, it likely will work. Typically outpatient treatment involves an intramuscular injection of Ceftriaxone and Azithromycin (zithromax). The Amoxicillin should provide coverage even if it isn't first line. If you have any question about your treatment, you can consult a clinic or md.
No doctors for the next month. I think I may have pid, can't wait a month. Took zithromax 1g yesterday. Is taking cefixime 400 mg today a good idea?

I have chlamydia and suspect I may have pid, will the zithromax prescribed cure PID if I have it, or do I need to go back to the doctor to be checked?
Get Treated: It is urgent that you get treated asap. Zithromax 1000 mg or 1 gm is one of the recommended treatments. The sooner you get treated, the less chance of causing permanent scarring of your follapian tubes which in turn can cause infertility. Also, your partner should also be checked and preferably treated.See 1 more doctor answer
Does zithromax used for chlamydia get rid of pid? How can I be sure if chlamydia did or didn't cause infertility?
PID: Because chlamydia can stay without symptoms, it can cause damage to the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility later in life. If diagnosed early, a single dose of zithromax should treat the infection and reduce any risk for complications. Still, the only way to know if there is any residual effect is to evaluate the fallopian tubes with a hysterosalpingogram.See 1 more doctor answer
PID is an STD: In general PID is an STD although there are certain exceptions. This is a reasonable choice of antibiotics but close monitoring is required. If PID is treated as an outpatient the patient should be seen for a physician exam 48-72 hours later to confirm improvement.
Azithromycin: Not in a single dose. Antibiotic therapy for any infection is dependent upon the sensitivity of the causative organism to the antibiotic used, the dosages and duration of therapy, the ability of the antibiotic to penetrate to the locale of the infection, and the immune status of the patient as well as the duration of the infection. Under the proper circumstances Azithromycin may be ok here.
PLEASE clear up my confusion. If I do not have gonorrhea, then which bacteria will Azithromycin treat for my suspected PID?
Chlamydia: Zithromax is used to treat Chlamydia. Best wishes!
Can 1g azithromycin treat anything else other than Clamydia and gonorreah? Treated for suspected PID but have NO positive STI swabs.
See below: Azithromycin 1g: a treatment of choice for urethritis and cervicitis as most of these infections are due to gonorrhea and/or Chlamydia. Same dose also used for Rx of the STD "Chanchroid." PID can be difficult diagnosis to make and cultures not always positive. Pelvic/lower abdominal pain, tenderness on pelvic exam, vaginal discharge, fever usual symptoms. 2 weeks of oral antibiotics in mild cases
When I had chlamydia, if I would have had PID would this have been cured with the same antibiotic I took to treat chlamydia? Azithromycin?
Azithro will cure it: Assuming you had no symptoms of PID (abdominal pain, fever, etc) then the standard treatment for chlamydia, such as a single dose of azithromycin, would cure you. All people with chlamydia should have a follow-up test in 3-4 months, which picks up both reinfection and rare treatment failures. But you needn't worry about PID. If in doubt, check with your local NHS GUM clinic for expert care.
