Pregnancy & STDs

There are no translations available.

 

Most STDs can be passed from a mother to her baby during pregnancy or childbirth. All pregnant women should receive STD screening from a qualified health care provider. Remember, you might have an STD even if you feel fine.

STDs and HIV/AIDS
Being infected with another STD makes you two to five times more likely to contract HIV if you are exposed to the virus during sex with an infected partner. That's another reason you should receive regular STD screenings if you are sexually active.
