Screening for Chlamydia trachomatis at a university health service



Screening for Chlamydia trachomatis at a university health service



Journal of Obstetric, Gynecologic, and Neonatal Nursing 18(2): 145-149



Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of Chlamydia in college family planning patients and to identify diagnostic indicators associated with Chlamydia. A thorough history and physical examination was performed, including culture for gonorrhea, cancer (papanicolaou test), and Chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia occurred in 12.6% of 419 subjects. The lack of signs and symptoms and the possibility of inaccurate historical data limit the clinical predictability of chlamydial infections. Routine screening of college women is recommended.
