Did you know that there are over 110 million cases of sexually transmitted diseases and infections (STDs/STIs) in the U.S. every year, and 20 million of those are new infections?* This means that one half of all women in the U.S. will likely contract an STD or STI at some point in their lives. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that all sexually active individuals get screened and start treatment right away if the test is positive, and the medical professionals at The Source for Women are committed to providing you with confidential, cost free testing and treatment for STDs and STIs.
If left undetected and untreated, STDs and STIs can increase your risk of acquiring a second STD, and they can cause serious medical complications including painful sores, heart disease, cancer, or birth defects. However, with early detection, all STDs and STIs are treatable and most are curable. Our program includes screening, education, and referrals to other medical centers as needed.
If you are sexually active and have not yet received STD/STI screening or have questions about your reproductive health, we can help. Call us to schedule an appointment or request an appointment online today.
