Only a few...: Have a urine test for gonorrhea and chlamydia and blood tests for HIV and syphilis. You could consider a blood test for herpes, but if so, have only an IgG test for HSV2, not an IgM test, which often is misleading. Nothing else is necessary. Best wishes for a romantic, rewarding, and successful marriage!

Familiar items : Inductions can be a relatively quick process or take up to 2-3 days. Bring a pillow, blanket and slippers from home (put them away for the delivery so they don't get messy). Have an ipod with music you like. Many people bring family pictures or an item you have brought for the new baby to focus on during labor. Take a childbirth prep class and know your pain management options.

Can STDs caused cancer?

Dr. Marcus Degraw

Yes, yes and yes: Yes! hpv, or the virus that causes genital warts, is responsible for all cervical cancer, most vaginal, vulvar and anal cancers, most head-and-neck cancers, most non-melanoma skin cancers, etc... If that isnt enough cancer, then hepatitis b causes liver cancer as well. Get vaccinated against both hpv and hep b and your risk of these cancers drops drammatically!

It is the organisms that cause the cancer. Of course, cervical cancer is the most commonly identified, but there are many families that result in cancer.

Can I develop immunity toward stds?

3 doctor answers5 doctors weighed in
Dr. Marcus Degraw
Pediatrics 22 years experience
Really No: No, we dont form effective immune responses to STDs to help prevent further infections down the road. Only hepatitis b has an effective vaccine to prevent infection through protective immunity. Every other std has ineffective mechanisms in producing effective immune reponse and subsequent immunity.
