The purpose of this study is to determine the prevalence and treatment rates of T. vaginalis, C. trachomatis, and N. gonorrhoeae in women seeking emergency contraception or urine pregnancy testing in the Magee-Womens Hospital outpatient clinic using a non-invasive urine STD test.
This study has three primary objectives: 1) to determine the prevalence of T. vaginalis, C. trachomatis, and N. gonorrhoeae in women seeking emergency contraception or urine pregnancy testing - a population likely at increased risk of acquiring STDs; 2) to determine the rate of successful treatment in women diagnosed with STDs in this venue.
