STI’s: Quick Facts – What You Need To Know!

QUICK FACTS:  
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) or Sexually Transmitted Disease (STDs)

  • Anyone who is sexually active can contract an STI/STD.
  • Birth control pills do not protect against STIs.
  • Two most common kinds of STI/STD:   Chlamydia, Gonorrhea
  • Others include: Syphilis, HIV, Hepatitis A, B and C
  • STIs are transmitted by person to person contact through blood, semen, or vaginal fluids.
  • Symptoms can vary and many times there may not be any symptoms in the person infected, so you may not even know you’ve been exposed.
  • STIs can be passed from mother to infant during pregnancy or childbirth, which could cause serious problems.
  • Untreated STIs during an abortion procedure can cause further health complications.
  • STI screening and treatment is available through your doctor, urgent care facility or local STI clinics.
