Sexually active adolescent girls should be screened for chlamydia every six months, according to experts in the US. A study by doctors at Johns Hopkins University revealed that of 3,202 girls aged 12 to 19 tracked over 33 months, nearly one-third tested positive for the disease at least once. The average time between an initial negative result and a later positive result was 7.2 months, with 25% of the positive results occurring within five months of the first test. The study, published in the August 12 edition of The Journal of the American Medical Association, showed that most of the infections were asymptomatic.
