I have non STD related pelvic inflammatory disease - not sure what cause was. Took one dose of azythromyacin -symptoms 1wk later. Whats going on?

In brief: Puzzling treatment

Hmmm... something doesn't compute.
Single dose azithromcycin is inadequate for PID and I find it difficult to understand any doctor prescribing it. The only STD appropriate for that treatment is chlamydia, but presumably "non std related" means you were tested for it and negative. In any case, return to your doctor (or maybe find another one) about your continuing symptoms.
