easy tests, and to reduce risk always remember to use protection."

The findings highlight the need for greater prevention and screening efforts, and young people should be the first target of such efforts, the researchers noted.

Here are the current CDC screening recommendations for STDs:

  • Everyone should get at least one HIV test.
  • All sexually active women aged 25 and under, along with older women who have risk factors such as new or multiple sex partners, should be screened annually for chlamydia.
  • At-risk sexually active women should be screened annually for gonorrhea.
  • Pregnant women should be screened for syphilis, HIV, chlamydia and hepatitis B, while at-risk pregnant women should be screened for gonorrhea during their first prenatal visit.
  • All HIV-infected women should be screened yearly for trichomoniasis.
  • All sexually active gay and bisexual men should be screened at least once a year for syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea and HIV. Those who have multiple or anonymous partners should be screened more frequently for STDs (preferably three- to six-month intervals). In addition, those who also use illegal drugs, particularly methamphetamine, or whose partners use drugs should be screened more frequently.
