I have been diagnosed with PID. I am taking Ceftum 500 1 tab twice daily, Doxt 100 1 tab twice daily and Metrogyl 400 1 tab thrice daily. is that sufficient? should my husband be taking some medicines as well? I gave birth to a baby 1 year back. My symptoms include heavy bleeding since menstruation re-started (8 months after delivery), severe chronic lower abdominal cramping pain, chills, lower back pain, fatigue.No vaginal swab was not taken. I have already started taking the antibiotics, what to do now? Which medicines should my husband take, please suggest? And how to screen for STDs?

Brief Answer: SUFFICIENT MEDICATION, HUSBAND ALSO SHOULD TAKE. Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. Actually, a vaginal swab ensures that the specific offending organism is targetted and treated accordingly. You have been started empirically on antibiotics that cover most pelvic infections, so it should be sufficient. How many days course has been prescribed by you? Yes, most such infections are sexually transmitted, so your husband also should be examined and then treated. If this is not possible, he can take empirical course of FAS - 3 kit or AF - 3 kit , as it covers most infectious organisms. Also use condoms during sex till your antibiotics are completed. Screening for STDs includes physical genital examination, culture of any discharge , vaginal swab, urethral swab. All the best PLease feel free to discuss further.

So all the tablets are to be taken all at once or separately on the same day?
Answered by Dr. Aarti Abraham 6 hours later
Brief Answer: DIRECTED BELOW Detailed Answer: 1. Azithromycin has to be taken on empty stomach early in the morning ( before breakfast ). 2. Fluconazole can be taken after lunch. 3. Two white tablets ( secnidazole ) both have to be taken together after dinner. So you will complete all 4 tablets ( the whole kit ) in one day.
