Are all forms of pelvic inflammatory disease caused by sexually transmitted diseases?

No: Most are, but one notorious cause which is probably a thing of the past (i hope) was the multi-string iud, which resulted in ordinary vaginal bacteria invading the pelvis and causing pid, sometimes very bad cases.
