CONCLUSIONS: In men, regimens with azithromycin are probably less effective than doxycycline for microbiological failure, however, there might be little or no difference for clinical failure. For women, we are uncertain whether azithromycin compared to doxycycline increases the risk of microbiological failure. Azithromycin probably slightly reduces adverse events compared to doxycycline in men and women together but may have little difference in men alone. We are uncertain whether doxycycline compared to ofloxacin reduces microbiological failure in men or women alone, or men and women together, nor if it reduces clinical f...

Reproductive health for teens has primarily focused on preventing or delaying pregnancies (and sexually transmitted infections [STIs]) rather than treating infertility. There continues to be millions of teen pregnancies per year (Martin,  Hamilton, Osterman, Curtin,&Mathews, 2015), many intended by females and/or their partners, especially in developing countries where adolescent parenting is commonplace to the cultural norms (Haimov-Kochman,  Imbar, Farchat, Bdolah,&Hurwitz, 2008). In the United States, there is evidence in media reports (e.g., the Massachusetts pregnancy pact [Kingsbury,  2008] and...
