Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD's)

  1. Answers to Questions About HPV

    Learning about HPV can help you avoid infection and seek treatment, if necessary.

  2. Chlamydia Can Lead to Infertility

    A lot of us don't realize that chlamydia and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can cause no symptoms, meaning you could have an STD and not know it.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Statistics: Gynecological Health at a Glance

    Cancer of the endometrium is the most common cancer of the female reproductive organs.

  7. The 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.

  8. What You Need to Know About STDs

    Your body usually tells you when you are in danger -- your heart races, you breathe hard, your palms sweat. But when it comes to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), you may not have any warning signs.
