*It's estimated that in this year alone, almost 9 million American teens will contract an STD. If you've ever had sex, there's a chance you could have an STD even if you don't experience symptoms since it is possible to be infected by one without knowing it. If you have had sex, we strongly recommend you get tested since even the STDs that show no symptoms will affect you in some way.
It is especially important for pregnant women who is seeking an abortion to get tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. Of patients who have a Chlamydia infection at the time of her abortion, 23% will develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) within 4 weeks. PID is a general term that refers to infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and other reproductive organs in women. Call us today if you would like to schedule an appointment.
