Why Is It Important?

Finding STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like Chlamydia early is the best way to cure them. It also helps keep them from spreading to other people. Women can use medicine to get rid of the infection. The medicine can help you avoid complications including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) that could keep you from being able to get pregnant.
