Summary of "Self-reported extragenital chlamydia and gonorrhea testing in the past 12 months among men who have sex with men in the United States - American Men's Internet Survey, 2017."

Current guidelines recommend that sexually active men who have sex with men (MSM) be screened at least annually for bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs) at sites of sexual contact regardless of condom use. Extragenital (rectal and pharyngeal) STI are common in MSM and associated with an increased risk of HIV. We describe the prevalence of MSM who reported any STI test and an extragenital STI test in the past 12 months (p12m) in the United States.
