What Was Measured?

What percentage of women in the PPO, who are ages 16-20 and sexually active, were tested for chlamydia?

These results are based on PPO patient administrative records.

Why Is It Important?

Finding sexually transmitted infections — also known as STIs or STDs — like Chlamydia early is the best way to cure them. It also helps keep them from spreading to other people. Women can use medicine to get rid of the infection. The medicine can help you avoid complications including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) that could keep you from being able to get pregnant.
