Genital-only Screening Misses Many Cases of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia in Women

A new Johns Hopkins Medicine study that looked at over 10,000 people who attended an STI clinic in Baltimore has found that the occurrence of gonorrhea or chlamydia in extragenital areas like the throat or rectum is significant in women, particularly younger women.

If the women examined in this study had only received genital STI tests -- as is the standard recommendation -- nearly 14 percent of chlamydia infections and more than 30 percent of gonorrhea infections would have been missed.
