Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammatory condition of the pelvic cavity that may begin with cervicitis and may involve the uterus (Endometritis), fallopian tubes (Salpingitis), ovaries (Oophoritis), pelvic peritoneum, or pelvic vascular system. About 1million women are diagnosed with PID each year in the United States; most are younger than 25 years of age, and one fourth of them have serious sequelae1. Education and counseling tailored for adolescents. All adolescents should be educated about their risks of acquiring an STD and its relation to PID. Adolescents often fail to recognize the dangers of high-risk sex behaviors and do not seek medical advice about such behavior. Age-appropriate and developmentally appropriate counseling strategies are needed. To provide adolescents with directed educational messages, careful risk assessment is also needed. A history of STD or PID is a valuable risk marker identifying early adolescent women at risk of having PID. Early and effective intervention for adolescents will reduce their likelihood of acquiring STD and, consequently, should diminish PID and other complications of STD11.
