STDs and Pregnancy

Women who are pregnant can become infected with the same STDs as women who are not pregnant. Pregnancy does not provide women or their babies any additional protection against STDs. STDs can complicate the pregnancy and may have serious effects on both mother and the developing baby. STDs/STIs during pregnancy can also cause Miscarriage, Ectopic pregnancy, Preterm labor and delivery, Birth defects and Newborn death etc. Some of these problems may be seen at birth; others may not be discovered until months or years later. Testing and treating pregnant women for STDs is a vital way to prevent serious health complications to both mother and baby that may otherwise happen with infection. STDs, such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, trichomoniasis and BV can all be treated and cured with antibiotics that are safe to take during pregnancy.
