Other STDs + related conditions
Some STDs can make you more vulnerable to other conditions, diseases and infections...including bacterial vaginosis, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), chancroid, pubic lice (crabs), scabies, or yeast infections in men and women alike. Let us help you know your risks, and how to protect yourself.

"The first thing I tell a patient about STDs is that if you're worried about one STD, you should probably worry about all STDs. In other words, if you had unprotected sex and you're worried about a possible HIV exposure, it's important to understand that hepatitis can be spread in the same fashion...ditto for chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes and syphilis."
