Abstract Objective: To identify the prevalence and correlates the chronic pelvic pain outside the menstrual period with sexual activity in an adolescents Brazilians students women survey. Design and Setting: Participants provided written informed consent for interviews. We present data from female adolescents, high school students from a public school in a city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil, interviewed between May 2017 and September 2017. This questionnaire focussed on sexual activity, therefore, in the fact of being or not being a virgin, defined as those who report vaginal sex, with one or more partners, at the time of the interview or never having had vaginal penetration defined as virgins. A single teacher interviewed participants at the school. Main outcome measures: It is very high significant the selfreports of Chronic Pelvic Pain in association with sexual intercourse. Results: 104 adolescents aged 15 to 17 years were interviewed and two groups of women were obtained. A group A that included 60 virgins (57, 6%) adolescents who responded were virgins and therefore never maintained sexual activity with vaginal penetration and all these adolescents denied pelvic pain outside the menstrual period; and another group B that included 44 adolescents (42,4%) non virgins who reported not being virgins and who are having sexual activity of at least 1 time per week vaginal penetration. Of these, 24 (54,4%) women reported pelvic pain outside the menstrual period. Conclusions: Rates of pelvic pain in Brazilians student’s women are correlated with sexual activity with vaginal penetration. Women with complain pelvic pain should be investigated about this condition.
