Answer

Consult obstetrics/gynecology for any patient with severe PID and any pregnant patient with chlamydial infection. Consult ophthalmology for patients with chlamydial conjunctivitis. Provide information and counseling to prevent future STDs, and consider referral for HIV testing. Encourage the patient to abstain from sexual intercourse until after treatment and testing of all partners is completed.
