Does having a Sexually Transmitted Infection affect your pregnancy?
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 as soon as possible, but if you are considering having an abortion, you MUST receive treatment prior to having that abortion procedure.
Women who have an untreated STI (like Chlamydia or Gonorrhea) are up to 25% more likely to develop Pelvic Inflamatory Disease (PID) following an abortion procedure. So, it is important to be tested for STIs prior to making any decisions about your pregnancy.
