STI Testing & Treatment
Have you been tested for an STI (sexually transmitted infection)? Even if you have only had one partner, there is a risk that you could carry STDs / STIs. Because most STIs cause no symptoms, they are not detected until complications develop.
Mosaic PHC provides free STI testing and treatment for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea in men and women. Other sexual health services included with your test are an STD / STI consultation, risk assessment and doctor referrals, if needed. The STI testing is provided free of charge and can be scheduled during your first visit.
STIs & Pregnancy
STIs also affect any pregnancy decision. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), if a woman has an untreated STI at the time of her abortion, it can increase her likelihood of PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). If left untreated, PID can cause lifelong medical complications. If a woman decides to carry to term, untreated STIs can be transferred to the baby during delivery. Regardless of your pregnancy decision, an STI test can be very important.
