Abstract

A subsample of 681 women participating in a two-centred, three-setting larger (2817) prevalence study were approached and, with consent, administered a questionnaire by post or in person. The questionnaire asked about their views of opportunistic screening for Chlamydia trachomatis (CT). The study response rate was 71%. In all, 94% women reported screening should be offered and most, on a regular basis. About 91% thought men should be screened but only 47% thought they would attend. Most (89%) knew the term 'chlamydia' but fewer, (63%) knew they could catch CT more than once.
