If you’re undecided about your next steps or you plan to terminate your pregnancy, a sexually transmitted infection (STI) test is essential information. During an abortion procedure, an undiagnosed STI can spread into the uterus, fallopian tube, and/or into the pelvis, which can affect future fertility or cause chronic pain.
At Blue Ridge Women’s Center, we offer STI testing for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea through a medical-grade urine test for those who are considering a termination. These are two common infections that people can have without noticing any symptoms, so it’s important to get an STI test before making a pregnancy decision.
STI tests must accompany a pregnancy test here at Blue Ridge Women’s Center. Both tests are free of charge.
If you have already gotten a pregnancy test at Blue Ridge Women’s Center for this pregnancy, please call 540-362-4357 to schedule your STI test.
