STD Screenings for Women
While STDs are health concerns for all people, it’s mostly women who suffer from life-changing health problems—in the U.S., untreated STDs cause infertility in at least 24,000 women yearly. Untreated syphilis results in infant deaths in up to 40% of births. Delay of treatment is the problem, that’s why screening is important.
