Although it’s always important to diagnose and treat sexually transmitted infections, it can be especially important in pregnancy.
Herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis, genital warts and HIV can all affect you and your baby during pregnancy.
We screen for all of these diseases (except for herpes) at your first pregnancy visit.
Please talk with us at any time during pregnancy if you think you have one of these infections, have a new partner during the pregnancy, wish to be screened for herpes, or have any unusual discharge or notice any bumps or sores.
If you are fully vaccinated masking is optional in our offices; if you have not been vaccinated masking for your protection is strongly encouraged. This is subject to change as COVID levels fluctuate in our community
