I have a study question about a teenager female less than 18 years on her first physical who has become sexually active, no discussion on protection usage or not. Which would be screened for? HPV or chlamydia

i guess chlamydia
HPV: 21 year old or 3 years after first intercourse
I agree with ambi08; chlamydia should be screened as per STDs. When you screen for chlamydia you also screen for gonorrhea, or the other way around?.
HPV screening can wait as many people can get rid of the virus; after 21 years old is a better age to assess whether the virus will remain and thus cause dysplasic changes in the uterus/cervix.
