Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the most prevalent, treatable STDs*. If left untreated, complications can include infertility, pelvic inflammatory disease, pregnancy complications.2,3

ECDC recommends:

  • Chlamydia and gonorrhea screening have been extended to young men in some countries
  • NAATs^ are the recommended diagnosis for chlamydia and gonorrhea4
  • Same-day testing and treatment

BHIVA/BASHH recommends:5

  • Full STI screen at baseline including NAAT^ testing for gonococcal and chlamydial infections at sites of exposure (genital, rectal, pharyngeal) and syphilis serology
  • 3-monthly screening for bacterial STIs (chlamydia, gonorrhoea and syphilis) for individuals receiving PrEP#, especially for MSM and transwomen
