STIs and Pregnancy

In addition to protecting your reproductive health and fertility, it’s crucial to receive STI testing when you are pregnant.

If you are considering parenting or adoption, STIs can spread to your child during pregnancy or birth. The impact of STIs on infants can be devastating, including blindness, pneumonia, and long-term health issues.

If you are considering abortion, you will want to receive STI testing to ensure there’s no chance of spreading an STI like chlamydia or gonorrhea further into your reproductive tract, potentially leading to a severe infection called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).

Protect your health and safety! Also, ensure your partner receives STI testing and treatment as well, as there’s always a chance of reinfection.

Sometimes STIs Are Silent

Two of the most common bacterial STIs, chlamydia and gonorrhea, are often silent, meaning they do not show any signs or symptoms, or the symptoms are mild and easy to overlook.

While a urine test can easily detect either of these STIs, they can go unnoticed for a long time and potentially cause damage and complications. They can also spread to partners without either person’s awareness.

Testing Is Crucial

Regular STI testing is critical for anyone sexually active.
