Chlamydia Infection Among Adolescent Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptive (LARC) and Shorter Acting Hormonal Contraceptive Users Receiving Services at New York City School-Based Health Centers.

Summary of "Chlamydia Infection Among Adolescent Long-Acting Reversible Contraceptive (LARC) and Shorter Acting Hormonal Contraceptive Users Receiving Services at New York City School-Based Health Centers."

One concern regarding long acting reversible contraception (LARC) use among female adolescents is the potential for sexually transmitted infection (STI) acquisition. Few studies investigate chlamydia infection among adolescent LARC users compared to other hormonal contraceptive method (non-LARC) users. We hypothesized that incident chlamydia infection would be similar in these two groups and that it would not be associated with adolescent LARC use.
