Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are very common. STDs are caused by STIs that have been passed from one person to another during sexual contact. If you have been sexually active, you may already have a STI and not know it. Once an STI produces symptoms, it is then referred to as an STD. If you have had sexual contact without using condoms or other barriers, your risk is heightened.
Metro Women’s Care can help answer your questions about STIs, explain how to reduce your chances of contracting an STI, and explain where to obtain confidential STI testing. If you are considering an abortion procedure, take the time to understand how an STD heightens the risks of an abortion procedure. Schedule an appointment to visit with our nurses today.
