Abstract

Abstract: Among adolescents, partner changes are associated with STIs, but little is known about the timing. Using daily diaries and weekly STI tests, we describe whether infections occur before or after sex partner change during periods when a young woman changes partners once. Results showed infections occurring both before and after partner changes.
