Is metronidazole and Zithromax a reasonable treatment for PID? I am clear of STDs.

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.
