Can An STI/STD Affect My Pregnancy?

How Could An STI/STD Affect My Pregnancy?
Pregnancy can be affected by a sexually transmitted infection and, if left untreated, can create serious health risks for you and your child.  

  • Most OB/GYN offices will routinely screen for STIs at your first pregnancy (obstetrics) visit.
  • It is possible to have an STI while pregnant and not have any symptoms.
  • STIs can be passed to a developing fetus during pregnancy and/or to the baby during labor and delivery.
  • Some STIs (bacterial) can be treated with antibiotics.
  • For other STIs (viral) steps can be taken to reduce the risk of transmission or manage symptoms.
  • Potential risks of untreated STI can include:  pre-term labor, pre-mature rupture of membranes, low birth weight and others.
