About one million Chlamydia trachomatis urogenital infections occur in Japan. Infections of Chlamydia trachomatis or gonococci are associated many clinical syndromes, ranging from urethritis and epididymitis in men to cervicitis, salpingitis, acute urethra syndrome, endometritis, ectopic pregnancy, infertility and pervic inflammatory disease in women. Unfortunately early infected symptoms are often very mild or absent among women. So early diagnosis and treatment are both important in Chlamydia trachomatis and gonococci infection in women. Chlamydial and gonococcal infection are highly prevalent in young sexually active adolescent. With sexually active teens practicing high-risk behavior, frequent testing is ideal and offers multiple opportunities for education and counseling by the care workers.
