Staying healthy is an important part of college life. Having a regular gynecological exam is an essential aspect of responsible and preventative health care. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends annual chlamydia screening for sexually active women under the age of 25. The CDC also recommends that women between the ages of 11 and 26 be vaccinated to prevent cervical cancer caused by Human Papilloma Virus (HPV).
