||Thatís literally exactly what
we found, that no matter how you looked at it, whether you compared it to no contraception
or to barrier contraception, hormonal contraception was associated with unrecognized PID,
and these are different ways of looking at that. The bottom line was that there was a
substantial relationship between hormonal contraception and unrecognized versus recognized
PID, which does suggest that it is this unrecognized phenomenon. Itís not that hormonal
contraception is actually protective against PID, itís just that it reduces the clinical
(?) and recognition.
