Answer

In clinical practice, repeat testing is rarely performed unless symptoms do not improve with drug treatment. However, the CDC recommends rescreening at 3 months post therapy for sexually active women, as they have a high rate of reinfection. [96] Currently, no data are available on rescreening men.
