Sexual Health Program
There are dozens of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Some STIs, such as syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia, are spread mainly by sexual contact. Other diseases, including hepatitis C and monkeypox can be spread sexually but are also spread through ways other than sex.
Prompt testing and appropriate treatment of STIs is essential for personal health and the health of our community. Untreated STIs may be transmitted to sexual partners and cause long-term complications such as severe illness and infertility. STIs in pregnancy can cause complications like still births and preterm delivery.
