For your convenience the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations for screening CT and NG are as follows: for chlamydial and gonorrhea infections the CDC recommends yearly testing of all sexually active women age 25 or younger, older women with risk factors for chlamydial/gonorrhea infections (those who have a new sex partner or multiple sex partners), and all pregnant women. An appropriate sexual risk assessment by a health care provider should always be conducted and may indicate more frequent screening for some women. As of yet, there are no such formal guidelines for T. vaginalis; however, the CDC says that screening can be considered in those at high risk for infection (i.e., women who have new or multiple partners, have a history of STDs, exchange sex for payment, and use injection drugs).
