Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are infections that spread through sexual activity. STDs may be bacterial, viral, or parasitic. Some are curable, but others can only be treated. They vary greatly in type and may not even produce noticeable symptoms. They can, however, create serious problems for women, developing babies, and breastfed infants, including infertility and death.
There are a variety of STDs, including:
– Genital Herpes
– Genital Warts
– Hepatitis B and C
– Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
– Pubic Lice
Dr. Ayalon can identify, treat, and (if possible) cure STDs if they are noticed early. If you suspect you have been exposed to an STD, it is important to refrain from sexual activity and make an appointment with Dr. Ayalon as soon as possible.
