A study of Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated the number of women who got Chlamydia test, and the result is quite low with only 38 percent of women aged 15 to 25 were screened in 2010.
Too few young, sexually active women getting chlymedia test is motivating CDC making a seriously campaign to recommend young women testing for Chlamydia. The disease is easily treated with antibiotics but can wreak havoc in women who don’t know they’re infected. Without treatment, the Chlamydia infection can spread into the uterus or fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease. The uterus and surrounding tissues can also become affected resulting in chronic pain, infertility and potentially fatal ectopic pregnancies.
The CDC has recommended that women be screened annually for chlamydia. Meanwhile, women should be take a vital notice for themselves safe sexual life.
