April is Sexually Transmitted Infection Awareness Month

April is STI Awareness Month. Did you know???

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

 

People may not know they have an STI because many do not have symptoms, and they can cause serious health consequences if they are not detected and treated appropriately. For example, chlamydia left untreated can put a woman at risk for pelvic inflammatory disease, a condition that can lead to infertility.

Please see one of our caring providers to be tested. STI testing can be confidential and free or low-cost, and common STIs, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, are usually effectively treated with antibiotics.

Should I get a mammogram???

Determining if you should have a routine screening mammogram is actually pretty easy. Are you a woman? Are you 40+ years old? Then, the answer is YES! You should have a yearly mammogram.

Don't Neglect your Mammogram!

Getting a screening mammogram EVERY YEAR is one of the most important things women over age 40 can do for their health. Serial screening mammograms (not skipping a year) have been shown to reduce death by Breast Cancer by 50%.
