Adapted from Witkin et al. Unsuspected Chlamydia trachomatis infection and in vitro fertilization outcome. Am J Obstet Gynecol Nongonococcal-nonchlamydial salpingitis may also arise de novo as a primary infection. There is less fever, vaginal discharge, and liver tenderness than with gonococcal PID. Despite these differences, the clinical presentation does not adequately distinguish between the two, and reliance on culture is necessary.

Except for the presence of N. As shown in Table 1 , the cervix and vagina of healthy women contain an abundance of aerobic and anaerobic microorganisms. There may be a critical number of organisms needed to overwhelm local host defense mechanisms in the cervix, allowing an infection to ascend to the upper genital tract. There is probably a continuum from bacterial vaginosis to endometritis and salpingitis, because women with bacterial vaginosis are significantly more likely to be diagnosed with PID.

Previous gonorrhea, use of an IUD, frequent douching, and uterine instrumentation predispose to the development of nongonococcal PID. Oral contraceptives may decrease the risk of developing PID, although they have less protective effect than barrier contraceptives. It is logical that women who have used IUDs suffer more tubal infertility and that women who used oral contraceptives have less infertility than women who have used neither method. The introduction of water-soluble contrast media has eliminated the complications of oil embolism and has reduced the risk of granuloma formation, but inflammatory reactions continue to be serious complications of this procedure.

There is less hope for the early development of chlamydial or gonococcal vaccines, in part because it has been difficult to elicit a sustained protective immune response in the genital tract mucosa.

I even retained a medical expert a retired surgeon of 25 years at our local home town hospital to concur my findings.
