Lauren Hunter, a doctoral student at UC Berkeley, presented the "Contraceptive method use and chlamydia positivity among California family planning clients: the case for new Multipurpose Prevention Technologies," an analysis comparing chlamydia positivity by type of contraceptive method used among women tested through California's Family PACT program in 2012-2013. In the presentation, she discusses the implications of the findings and how the development and provision of additional Multipurpose Prevention Technologies (MPTs) may help to address an unmet need for STI prevention.

If you’re a sexually active person— or even if you’re not right now—you probably have questions about your sexual health. Like, should I be tested for STIs? Which ones? Or what are my options for preventing pregnancy? You also might have questions about your libido and why it’s so low…or so high, and whether that’s normal. Or why sex is painful, or getting an erection is so difficult. It’s not always easy to bring these topics up, and it may not be clear exactly what questions you should be asking about your sexual health.
