Background No recent national data address the prevalence of gonorrhea. Goal The goal was to describe gonorrhea prevalence and chlamydial coinfection among women aged 15 to 24 years. Study Design Data were analyzed from tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea at family planning, STD, and prenatal clinics in 2000. Gonorrhea positivity, chlamydia positivity among women with gonorrhea, and the median and interquartile ranges (IQRs) were calculated. Results The median state-specific gonorrhea positivity… Expand
Gonorrhoea positivity among women aged 15–24 years in the USA, 2005–2007
TLDR
Gonorrhea positivity was consistently high for young non-Hispanic black women attending family planning clinics across multiple geographical regions and a large proportion of gonorrhoea morbidity was concentrated in a relatively small number of counties in the USA. Expand
Chlamydia and Gonorrhea Co-occurrence in a High School Population
TLDR
The rates of coinfection in this population exceeded those that justify dual treatment in patient-care settings, suggesting that chlamydia and gonorrhea co-occurrence may be highly prevalent among certain populations not attending patient- care settings. Expand
Prevalence and risk factors of chlamydia and gonorrhea among rural Nepali women
TLDR
The rates of N gonorrhoeae and C trachomatis are found to be low among women in this rural population of Nepal. Expand
Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infections among men and women entering California prisons.
TLDR
The prevalence of C trachomatis infection at entry to California prisons, especially among young female and male inmates, was high, which supports routine screening at entry into prison. Expand
Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae Prevalence and Coinfection in Adolescents Entering Selected US Juvenile Detention Centers, 1997–2002
TLDR
In males, chlamydia prevalence was high in some areas; however, gonorrhea prevalence was substantially lower; these prevalence data justify screening for chlam Lydia and gonorrhee among female adolescents in juvenile detention centers nationally. Expand
Prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae Among Persons 14 to 39 Years of Age, United States, 1999 to 2008
TLDR
The prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae was estimated in a nationally representative sample of persons aged 14 to 39 years participating in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey to monitor sexually transmitted disease morbidity over time. Expand
Prevalence of Gonorrhoeal and/or Chlamydial Infection in Hospitalized Patients with Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
TLDR
Women who had lower socioeconomic status and had sexual intercourse during menstrual bleeding were more likely to have gonorrhoeal and/or chlamydial infection. Expand
Prevalence of Neisseria gonorrhoeae Infections Among Men and Women Entering the National Job Training Program—United States, 2004–2009
TLDR
Declining trends in gonorrhea infection among NJTP entrants are similar to those observed in Gonorrhea case report data, suggesting that the decrease in case reports is due to a decrease in prevalence, however, targeted interventions are needed to reduce gonorhea infections in populations with disproportionate risk.

[Prevalence of infections by Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae among high school students in the Sabana Central area of Cundinamarca, Colombia].
TLDR
The prevalence of C. trachomatis detected inThis study was lower than the prevalence reported for similar groups; besides, contrary to the general trends, fewer asymptomatic cases were identified in this study. Expand
The Natural History of Incident Gonococcal Infection in Adolescent Women
TLDR
Individual shedding patterns varied widely, and GC organism load did not decline in women for at least several weeks and were not associated with genitourinary symptoms, and chlamydia coinfection is associated with higher GC organism loads, potentially increasing chances of transmission. Expand

Untreated gonococcal and chlamydial infection in a probability sample of adults.
TLDR
In 1997-1998, the estimated number of undiagnosed gonococcal and chlamydial infections prevalent in the population of Baltimore adults aged 18 to 35 years approached or exceeded the number of infections that were diagnosed and treated annually. Expand
Gonorrhea in the United States, 1981‐1996: Demographic and Geographic Trends
TLDR
Large segments of the population, including adolescents, young adults, and blacks, continue to have high rates of gonococcal infection; prevention programs and health care providers should address the needs of these groups. Expand
Chlamydia Positivity Versus Prevalence: What's the Difference?
TLDR
Positivity can be used to monitor chlamydia prevalence in women screened in family planning and sexually transmitted disease clinic settings, and the absolute difference between positivity and prevalence was less than 0.5% infamily planning and STD clinics. Expand
Cost-effectiveness of combined treatment for endocervical gonorrhea. Considering co-infection with Chlamydia trachomatis.
TLDR
Combination treatment is more than twice as cost-effective as tetracycline and seven times as cost -effective as ampicillin when the medical cost of managing pelvic inflammatory disease is considered. Expand
Laboratory testing for Neisseria gonorrhoeae by recently introduced nonculture tests: a performance review with clinical and public health considerations.
TLDR
The sensitivity and specificity of nucleic acid hybridization and amplification tests were high and did not appear to differ substantially by sex or anatomic site, and when proficiency in the performance of culture is high, the new tests are comparable to culture and may not offer a substantial advantage. Expand
Gonorrhea rates: what denominator is most appropriate?
TLDR
Refining denominators to take sexual activity into account had the largest impact on morbidity rates for young women, and traditional denominators severely underestimate gonorrhea rates in teenagers. Expand
