Sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia, continue to reach new highs for another consecutive year, according to the latest data from the CDC.
Many people who have one don’t know. Left untreated, STIs can cause serious health problems. With early diagnosis and follow up, most STIs are curable and all are treatable.
The doctors explain why you can’t assume you would “know,” and that even asymptomatic STIs need to be treated. Watch & share.
Dr. Mena is a clinician-researcher and public health advocate who is the Director of the Division of STD Prevention at the CDC. Dr. Flash is an infectious diseases specialist and president and CEO of Avenue 360 Health and Wellness.
