Can having an untreated sexually transmitted infection during abortion negatively affect your future health?
Free STI Testing
When considering your pregnancy options, it is important to know if you have a Sexually Transmitted Infection. It is always best to be treated for an STI (formerly known as STD) as soon as possible, but if you are considering having an abortion, you MUST receive treatment prior to having an abortion procedure.
Women who have an untreated STI (like Chlamydia or Gonorrhea) are up to 25% more likely to develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) following an abortion procedure. So, it is important to be tested for STIs prior to making any decisions about your pregnancy. Visit your doctor or the public health department, where you can be treated for your STI.
