AB  - This study was aimed to estimate the prevalences of chlamydia (CT) and gonococcal
      (NG) infections and explore risk factors associated with the CT infection among
      women in Shenzhen, China. We collected socio-demographic and clinical data from
      women (aged 20-60) and determined positivity of CT or NG by nucleic acid
      amplification test (NAAT) with self-collected urine specimens. We estimated
      prevalence of CT and NG and determined risk factors associated with CT infection.
      Among 9,207 participants, 4.12% (95% confidence interval [CI], 3.71%-4.53%)
      tested positive for CT and 0.17% (95% CIs, 0.09%-0.25%) for NG. Factors
      significantly associated with CT infection included being an ethnic minority
      (ethnicity other than Han China) (Adjusted odds ratio [AOR], 1.9; 95% CI,
      1.2-3.0), using methods other than condom for contraception (AOR, 1.5; 95% CI,
      1.2-1.8), having a history of adverse pregnancy outcomes (AOR, 1.4; 95% CI,
      1.1-1.8), and experiencing reproductive tract symptoms in the past three months
      (AOR, 1.3; 95% CI, 1.0-1.7). we found that CT infection is prevalent among women 
      in Shenzhen, China and associated with both demographic and behavioral factors. A
      comprehensive CT screening, surveillance and treatment programme targeting this
      population is warranted.
