Partner Notification, Treatment, and Subsequent Condom Use After Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: Implications for Dyadic Intervention With Urban Youth

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Research suggests that youth in urban communities often remain in the same sexual relationships after a pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) diagnosis. Utilizing data from the Technology Enhanced Community Health Nursing (TECH-N) study, we explored partner notification, treatment, and condom use after PID diagnosis. Outreach interviews assessed adherence to self-care behaviors, followed by interviews 3 months after diagnosis. Descriptive statistics and multivariable logistic regressions evaluated baseline condom use versus 3 months after diagnosis as it relates to group and relationship status. Ninety-one percent reported partner notification, and of those notified, 90% reported partner treatment. Reports of condom use increased in both groups compared with baseline use. TECH-N participants were more likely to report condom use at last sex at 3 months compared with baseline. Given the open communication with partners about PID and partner-associated effects on condom use, exploring dyadic intervention to promote consistent, condom use after PID for youth in high STI (sexually transmitted infection) prevalence communities is required.
