What is the best treatment for PID in a pregnant woman? Inpatient treatment with parenteral antibiotics is recommended for pregnant patients with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), although it is not clear which antibiotic therapy is the most effective. Azithromycin with or without etronidazole appears effective in PID in nonpregnant patients. Cephalosporins, which are recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of parenteral PID therapy, appear to be safe in pregnant patients (SOR: C, extrapolated from evidence-based guidelines, an RCT, and a case-control study).
