Get tested FOR STDS today
The biggest difference between an STI and STD is that an “STI” is typically known as an infection that does not always have noticeable symptoms - though there are instances where some symptoms may come through. An STI also has the potential to develop into an “STD.” For example, chlamydia (and gonorrhea) can turn into pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This is not the case for all STIs, however, especially if treated in a timely manner.
If you or your partner have had more than one sex partner at any time, Mosaic PHC recommends that you get tested for STDs at one of our health clinics today.
STIs, STDS & Abortion/Pregnancy
The presence of STIs and STDs may also affect certain pregnancy decisions. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), if a woman has not received complete STI treatment at the time of an abortion, it can increase her likelihood of pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Overall, if left untreated, PID can cause lifelong medical complications. If a woman decides to carry her pregnancy to term, untreated STIs and STDs can also be transferred to the baby during delivery.
Regardless of your ultimate pregnancy decision, STI and STD tests and treatment should occur before any decision is made. Reduce your chance of long-term medical complications by receiving free and confidential STI/STD testing today at Mosaic PHC. Schedule an appointment online for testing, consultations or any other offered service at our health center, or contact us directly for any other questions you may have.
