Her last menstrual period was two weeks ago. Her temperature is 101.4 F. She has tenderness in the right lower abdominal quadrant. The pelvic examination shows bilateral adnexal tenderness and pain with cervical motion. There is a cloudy mucoid discharge from the cervix. The pregnancy test is negative. Gram stain of the cervical discharge shows whites cells with no organisms, and the culture is pending. The patient is started on appropriate antibiotics . what are the mechanism of actions of possible antibiotics given to this young lady ?

yeap , ryt dr Venky 2006 . but one question , if we find gonorrhea PID , we have to treat both gono PID and chlamyd PID , coz of high risk of coinfection . but what about get chlamyd PID , is it necessary treat gono PID too ? is this rule applicable in both direction ? thanks

i'm not sure either
