  • updated treatment recommendations for uncomplicated gonorrhea in neonates, children, and other specific clinical situations (e.g., proctitis, epididymitis, sexual assault), which builds on broader treatment changes published in Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report;
  • information on FDA-cleared diagnostic tests for Mycoplasma genitalium and rectal and pharyngeal chlamydia and gonorrhea;
  • expanded risk factors for syphilis testing among pregnant patients;
  • recommended two-step serologic testing for diagnosing genital herpes simplex virus;

STI Educational Materials


Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis Expedited Partner Therapy (EPT)

Michigan Public Act 525 of 2014 (MCL 333.5110) authorized the use of expedited partner therapy (EPT) for certain sexually transmitted infections as designated by the state health department. In April 2020, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services designated chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis as infections for which the use of EPT is appropriate.


Antibiotic-Resistant Gonorrhea

(Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)
Antibiotic resistance is the ability of bacteria to resist the effects of the drugs used to treat them. This means the bacteria are no longer killed by a drug that used to kill them before, and the bacteria are then free to keep multiplying. Gonorrhea has developed resistance to nearly all of the antibiotics used for its treatment. We are currently down to one last recommended and effective class of antibiotics (cephalosporins) to treat this common infection. This is an urgent public health threat, because gonorrhea control in the United States largely relies on our ability to successfully treat the infection.
