Recent research shows that the incidence of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) increased worldwide from 1990 to 2019. More than 2.5 million cases were reported in the United States alone in 2019. People worldwide acquire more than one million STIs every day. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently updated treatment guidelines for the first time since 2015. Because patients are often hesitant to even initiate the conversation on STIs, quick and proper treatment can be a challenge. How much do you know about recommended medications for STIs, including adverse effects to watch for and contraindications to avoid? Test your knowledge with this quick quiz.
