Answer

Nearly 90% of women treated with an approved regimen note improvement in 48-72 hours. Delay in initiation of antibiotic therapy can result in systemic toxicity.

Endometritis is associated with increased maternal mortality due to septic shock. However, mortality is rare in the United States because of aggressive antimicrobial management.

In the PID Evaluation and Clinical Health (PEACH) study, endometritis was not found to be associated with subsequent pregnancy-related complications, chronic pelvic pain, or infertility. [9]
