Sexually Transmitted Infections, Diseases & Abortion

Sexually Transmitted Infections and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STI/STD’s) pose a serious risk to a woman’s future reproductive and overall health, especially if left untreated. According to the Centers for Disease Control, in the United States, 1 out of 4 women between the ages of 14 and 19 is infected with at least one STI/STD.  It is important that you get tested for Sexually Transmitted Infections/Diseases if you are considering abortion and if you suspect you have been exposed. The earlier you can be treated for an STI/STD the better.

Any abortion procedure (including medical abortion) opens the risk of transmitting bacteria from outside the woman’s body or from the vagina into the woman’s cervix. Women who have an untreated STI/STD are up to 23% more likely to develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) following an abortion procedure. 

Starting Point Pregnancy and Family Resource Center provides medical testing, diagnosis, and treatment of STI/STDs for females who are sexually active and desire testing. [We also provide treatment for partners]. There are many kinds of sexually transmitted diseases and infections and different ways you can contract a disease.

It’s important to remember that not all STI/STDs produce noticeable symptoms; therefore, it’s recommended that you get tested for STI/STDs regularly if you are sexually active with new or multiple partners. Inf
