Poll: Are you seeing a rise in STI cases?


People are being diagnosed with chlamydia and gonorrhea at a higher rate than ever before, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recently reviewed the latest evidence on screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea and ultimately issued an update to their 2014 recommendation.

The new recommendation, published in JAMA, deems screening for chlamydia and gonorrhea "critical because these STIs often do not cause symptoms, which makes them harder to detect," according to USPSTF vice-chair Michael Barry, MD.
