A 19-year-old woman visits her physician for a preventive health examination. Her medical history is unremarkable. She is sexually active with her boyfriend, and they use condoms inconsistently. She had one prior sexual partner and reports no symptoms of vaginal infections or sexually transmitted diseases. Results from her gynecologic examination are normal. Should this woman be screened for chlamydia, and if so, how?
