U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF)
- Screening for all sexually active non-pregnant females age 24 and younger. The optimal interval for screening this population is not known; noted that CDC recommends annually.
- Screening for all pregnant women ages 24 and younger, and pregnant women over 24 who have risk factors (e.g., new sexual partner, unprotected sex, STI history). Insufficient evidence to recommend screening in males.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
- All pregnant women
- Annual testing for all sexually active women under age 26
- Women 26 and older women with risk factors (new or multiple sex partners)
- No routine testing for men, but consider screening men in high-prevalence settings (correctional facilities, STD clinics)
