Is the stage of the menstrual cycle related to chlamydia detection?

Dana Forcey

We investigated the association between chlamydia detection and stage in the menstrual cycle to investigate whether chlamydia detection was higher at different stages of the cycle. Electronic medical records for women attending Melbourne Sexual Health Centre March 2011 - 31st December 2012, who were tested for chlamydia by nucleic acid amplification of high vaginal, cervical, or urinary samples, and who recorded a date of last normal menstrual period (LNMP) between 0-28 days were included in the analysis. Logistic regression was used to calculate OR (95%CI) for the association of chlamydia with menstrual cycle adjusted by demographics and behavioural variables. 

Disclosure of Interest: None Disclosed.
Recorded at the 2013 Australasian HIV & AIDS and Sexual Health Conference, 21-25 October, Darwin - Australia
