Unfortunately, women tend to have sexually transmitted infections without having any symptoms. Infections that are left untreated often lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), which is a common cause of pelvic pain and infertility.
ACOG (American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology) recommends testing of all women yearly under the age of 25.
Dr Swanson offers STD testing to all of her patients at the time of their annual exams. We offer urine testing, blood testing as well as swab testing. Please call us for an appointment should you have any concerns.
