STI Testing and Treatment

STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and STIs (sexually transmitted infections) are more common than you may think. Some are dangerous and can lead to infertility and other problems that can last a lifetime without treatment. If you’re sexually active, it’s crucial to get tested regularly.

What are the Most Common STI Symptoms?

Many STIs don’t have any obvious symptoms and can go unnoticed until complications arise. However, common STI symptoms include, but are not limited to[1]:

  • Painful and/or frequent urination.
  • Vaginal discharge that has a foul odor, causes irritation, or is a different color or amount than usual.
  • Vaginal bleeding outside of the period.
  • Discharge from the penis.
  • Swelling or severe itching near the vagina or penis.
  • Bumps, warts, or sores on or near the vagina, penis, anus, or mouth.

If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, don’t wait to get tested! Phoenix Women’s Clinic offers STI testing for the following:

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Trichomoniasis
  • Syphilis
  • Herpes
  • HIV
  • Hepatitis B & C
  • HPV Testing

Why is STI Testing Important Before an Abortion?

It’s crucial to get tested and treated for STIs before an abortion. If you have an STI at the time of an abortion, the procedure could cause the infection to spread to the reproductive tract, potentially leading to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)[2]. When left untreated, PID can cause infertility and ectopic pregnancy[1] in the future.
