Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD's)

  • Recognizing Gynecologic Problems

    Vaginal bleeding and discharge are a normal part of your menstrual cycle. If you notice anything different or unusual, talk with your health care provider.

  • Immune System

    The immune system keeps infectious microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, out of the body, and destroys any infectious microorganisms that do invade.

  • Sexually Transmitted Diseases

    Women suffer more frequent and severe symptoms from STDs. Some STDs can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, which can lead to both infertility and ectopic pregnancy.

  • HIV and AIDS

    AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus, which kills or impairs cells of the immune system and progressively destroys the body's ability to fight infections and certain cancers.
