Do I Need STD Testing Before An Abortion?
If you’re considering abortion as a solution to an unexpected pregnancy , it’s important to be tested for STDs before making a decision. Many women with STDs don’t have any symptoms so they don’t realize they’re infected. But women who undergo an abortion with an untreated STD are more likely to develop Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) following the abortion procedure. PID can lead to serious health issues including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, abscess formation and chronic pelvic pain. Make an appointment (link) for free STD testing and treatment.
