The silent STD: What you need to do to stay protected from chlamydia

Three out of four people who have chlamydia don't know they have it. Doctors recommend routine chlamydia screening for young, sexually active women. If you are a sexually active woman age 25 or younger, your doctor may recommend you get tested every year. The screening test is very accurate and easy—it's just a urine test.
