Prevalance of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease:
Each year in
the United States, more than 1 million women experience an episode of
acute PID. More than 100,000 women become infertile each year as a result
of PID, and a large proportion of the ectopic pregnancies occurring every
year are due to the consequences of PID. (Source: excerpt from PID: DSTD)
Each year in the United States, more than 1 million women
experience an episode of acute PID, with the rate of infection
highest among teenagers. (Source: excerpt from Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
Prevelance of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease discussion:
Each year up to 1 million women in the
United States develop PID, a serious infection of the reproductive
organs. As many as half of all cases of PID may be due to chlamydial
infection, and many of these don't have symptoms. PID can cause
scarring of the fallopian tubes, which can block the tubes and
prevent fertilization from taking place. Researchers estimate that
100,000 women each year become infertile because of PID. (Source: excerpt from Chlamydial Infection, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)

About prevalence and incidence statistics:
The term 'prevalence' of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease usually refers to the estimated population
of people who are managing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease at any given time.
The term 'incidence' of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease refers to the annual diagnosis rate,
or the number of new cases of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease diagnosed each year.
Hence, these two statistics types can differ:
a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence,
but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence.
