Sexually Transmitted Disease Information

We have several resources in our office and help educate you on sexually transmitted diseases. Call us or stop by to get the information you need. 

Are you at risk?

If you are sexually active, then you are at risk for contracting a sexually transmitted infection.  There are over 52,000 people get a new infection every day--that's 19,000,000 new cases each year.

Some STDs can be cured, but many have no symptoms

Here is a list of just some of the diseases that you may come in contact with should you choose to be sexually active:

Chlamydia

Most people who have chlamydia don’t know it since the disease often has no symptoms.

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease. Most people who have chlamydia don’t know it since the disease often has no symptoms. Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD in the United States. Sexually active females 25 years old and younger need testing every year. Easy to cure but chlamydia can impact a woman’s ability to have children if left untreated.

Gonorrhea

Anyone who is sexually active can get gonorrhea.

Anyone who is sexually active can get gonorrhea. If they occur, symptoms in men and women vary depending on what part of the body is infected: Gonorrhea can affect the anus, eyes, mouth, genitals, or throat. This disease can impact a woman’s ability to have children if left untreated.

HPV (Human Papillomavirus)-Street Name: Genital Warts

Genital human papillomavirus (also called HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI).

There are more than 40 types of HPV that can infect the genital areas of males and females. These HPV types can also infect the mouth and throat.  HPV can cause serious health problems, including genital warts and certain cancers. There is no certain way to tell who will develop health problems from HPV and who will not. 

Syphilis

The sexual behaviors that spread syphilis also spread other STDs, like HIV. Syphilis is easy to cure in its early stages. Signs and symptoms of syphilis include a firm, round, small, and painless sore on the genitals, anus, or mouth, or a rash on the body, especially on the palms of the hands or the soles of the feet.

Genital Herpes

Most people infected with genital herpes do now know they have it.

You can get genital herpes even if your partner shows no signs of the infection. If you have any symptoms (like a sore on your genitals, especially one that periodically recurs) laboratory tests can help determine if you have genital herpes. There is no cure for herpes, but treatment is available to reduce symptoms and decrease the risk of transmission to a partner.
