sti symptoms and testing in passaic

The most common symptom of an STI is no symptom at all.

For the most part, STIs are treatable diseases as long as they are detected and treated in a timely manner. For the most common infections such as gonorrhea and chlamydia, which are caused by bacteria, antibiotic regimens are extremely effective for treating the infection. For sexually active women in Passaic, it is worth getting tested for STIs regularly- the quicker we can catch an infection, the better; conversely, the longer an STI goes along under the surface, without presenting symptoms and going untreated, the more damage it can cause.

For women in the Passaic area, reducing your chances of contracting STIs begins with practicing safe sex

In other words, protect yourself! No barrier method is 100% effective for preventing pregnancy or the spread of STIs, but by using a barrier method each and every time you have sex, you are giving yourself the greatest possible chance of protecting yourself. Condoms for example, while there is always a risk of them breaking, are effective at controlling the spread of chlamydia and gonorrhea, which are two of the most damaging STIs to a woman's fertility.

STIs and fertility

STIs can play a role in fertility 

The first and most important thing to note is that if you have a history of STIs, it is no reason to give up hope on having a child. As with all things health related, staying informed is your best resource for improving odds of conception and avoiding STI-related complications during the pregnancy process. STIs' impact on fertility is not limited to gender, but it affects men and women differently. For the purpose of this blog, we will focus on how STIs affect women's fertility.

Women face unique health risks 

Due to each woman's unique chemical makeup, she will also face a unique set of health risks during her life. No matter how much emphasis we put on physical health, nutrition, or factors like keeping stress at a minimum, there are intangible diseases that can still beset a woman. For example, there are certain autoimmune diseases that are much more likely to affect women including: rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and thyroiditis. Staying ahead of these conditions and detecting them early gives us the best chance of treating them when they come along
