Why Should I Get Tested?
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the most commonly reported notifiable sexually transmitted bacterial infections. In the United States there are over 3 million new cases annually and worldwide the World Health Organization estimates the annual incidence of chlamydia to be 105.7 million and 106.1 million for gonorrhea.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that only 38% of sexually active young women are screened annually for chlamydia in the United States and that up to 75% of CT infected women are asymptomatic contributing to as many as 30% of CT infections progressing to PID which has been shown to cause permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system including infertility, chronic pelvic pain and ectopic pregnancy.
