Did you know? …

There is an increased risk of infertility and ectopic pregnancies when women delay treatment for STIs.

Full Screen

Expectant fathers should also receive thorough STI testing before trying for a baby. If you have an infection, you could pass it on to your partner. Should the infection be of high-risk, such as HIV, and your partner remains unaware of the transferred infection, it can cause complications during the pregnancy or birth of your child. It can also cause developmental problems in the child if they are exposed to the infection.

Better2Know’s Full Screen provides men and women with extensive testing for a variety of STIs. Certainty regarding your sexual health status can put your mind at ease when it comes to the health of both your partner and your baby.
