(Sexually Transmitted Diseases)
Untreated sexually transmitted diseases can have significant and long-lasting consequences, including they lead to infertility in both sexes, while women can cause pelvic inflammation, which increases the risk of infertility and ectopic pregnancy. In addition, one of the sexually transmitted diseases – HPV infection – also increases the risk of cervical cancer in women.
Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should know that untreated sexually transmitted diseases can cause complications in the newborn. Currently, screening for sexually transmitted diseases is part of routine prenatal care.
