What are Symptoms of Common STDs?

Most people who have contracted a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) don’t know that they have one. This is because STDs often don’t result in symptoms, making them difficult to detect. If you have noticed some unusual symptoms like pain while urinating, odd-smelling or unusually colored discharge, or painless bumps, sores, or warts, you could have contracted an STD.

If you are sexually active, the only way to know for sure if you are STD-free is to get tested. Untreated STDs can lead to long-term health problems like infertility, chronic pain, cancer, and even death.

What Should I Know about Abortion?

There are three legal abortion procedures in the US. If you’re less than 10 weeks into your pregnancy, you’re eligible for a medication abortion, but by 10 weeks or later you’ll need to have a surgical abortion. Like any medical procedure, there are a number of potential risks and side effects to be aware of before making your decision. Being fully educated on all aspects of the abortion process is important to make the best decision if you are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy.
