Recurring Chlamydia Infections Common in Teenage Girls

New Haven, Conn. — Recurring chlamydia infections are prevalent in young women ages 14-19, according to a Yale Department of Epidemiology and Public Health// (EPH) study published by Linda Niccolai, assistant professor in the division of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases, in the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine.

More than half of the study’s 411 participants were initially diagnosed with chlamydia and then, in a rate higher than previously recorded, nearly 30 percent reported repeated infection throughout the four-year project. The study was conducted at 10 community-based health centers in Connecticut. The women were examined at their initial visit and after six, 12, and 18 months. A total of 386 women were evaluated long-term.

Niccolai said there are many reasons why young women are getting infected and re-infected at such a high rate. One reason may be that the young women’s sex partners are not being adequately treated for their first infection.

“Women are much more likely than men to be diagnosed simply because they are more likely to seek reproductive health care,” says Niccolai. “Then they shoulder the burden to notify their partners about the infections and ensure their partner gets treated, which can be a very difficult thing for a young woman to do in the context of a sexual relationship.”

Niccolai states that a major reason for chlamydia infection and re-infection is the lack of consistent and correct use of condoms, which may result from the misperception of risk in relationships. Multiple sex partners, she said, also might be partly responsible for the higher rates of re-infection.

To prevent re-infection, Niccolai said it is important at the time of the initial diagnosis to educate and counsel patients. “It is possible that young women think chlamydia is ‘no big deal’ because it is easily treated with a single dose of oral antibiotics,” she said. Providing condom negotiatio
