Ask a Gynecologist and Get Answers to Your Ob-Gyn Questions ASAP
Hello, I am Dr Owen, I am a Board Certified Ob/Gyn Medical Doctor and I want to help you.
I would recheck this with actually with an Endometrial biopsy
Hi Dr. Owen
not really an ultrasound
So I would re-check the endometrial biopsy anytime after you have finished the doxycycline.
As for PID - well if you had a low grade PID - the Doxycycline would treat this
As for the thickness of the ultrasound - if you have irregular bleeding - then I would repeat the ultrasound, otherwise your really do not need another ultrasound
I hope this helps
my doctor suggested to wait a month after the antibiotics to go for the biopsy. Can I get it sooner??
You can get it sooner
what your doctor said about a month is really subjective - but honestly anytime after you have completed the antibiotics is useful
I hope I have helped

He said that I need that time to heal. After 2 weeks of finishing the antibiotics I still have a discharge and my pelvic is swollen.
okay - but a biopsy can be done at any time afterwards -
if your doctor wants to wait, that is okay
there really is no rush to get it done
Are you there?
I want a clean bill because I want to start a family asap
then you can actually just get the biopsy at anytime
Also treatment with doxycycline is really 100% to treat with endometritis - so it should be a clean bill of health
what is my next step if the biopsy comes back the same???
Well then next step would be a Hysteroscopy to LOOK with a camera inside the uterus
and then possibly IV antibiotic called Cefotetan Plus another course of doxycycline
but when you treat endometritis - honestly doxy is all you need
I was diagnosed with chronic endomitritis. Could they have missed PID????
As I said above - no
PID is diagnosed by an Exam, and having an elevated white blood cell count and fever and severe pain
what kind of exam???
Pelvic exam - a simple pelvic exam - nothing special
The CRITERIA for PID is this:
Discharge from the cervix
I have had severe pain on my right side for the last 8 months. They did a CAT because at the ER thought it was appendicitis
Elevated White blood cell count
discharge too and pain during intercourse
Well Then tell your ob/gyn you want this examined (I can't examine over the internet)
So if you have PID - and your doctor did NOT look for it, then you should get a course of IV antibiotic such as the Cefotetan
I will let him know. I did not mention this symptoms to my GYNO
you need to mention symptoms to your doctor - honestly we as doctors do not know unless you tell us
I wish you well
