But many are unaware of this. In a 2015 survey of 1500 sexually active women under 25
More than half did not use a condom the last time they had sex
Only 3% believe they are at risk for chlamydia, and only 2% believe they are at risk for gonorrhea
More than half said they don't want to be the one to initiate a conversation about sexually transmitted infections with their healthcare practitioner
After learning the facts about the risks of chlamydia and gonorrhea
Almost 90% of women* agreed that all sexually active women under 25 should be automatically
Almost 80% of women* said that if they knew testing was done automatically, they wouldn't feel that they were being judged by their practitioner
