Sexually Transmitted Diseases in Women: What You Need to Know
Sexually transmitted diseases are a common concern for women of all ages. Whether you are in an exclusive relationship or have multiple sexual partners, it is advisable to have routine STD testing.
Some sexually transmitted disease may not show symptoms. In fact, most women with STDs don’t know they have it. Such common STDs such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, HPV infection, HIV, ureaplasma, mycoplasma often cause no symptoms. You may get infected with an STI even if you always have sex with condoms.
Herpes virus and HPV virus that causes genital warts and cervical cancer can infect through the skin to skin contact outside the reach of a condom.
Sexually transmitted diseases can be transmitted through vaginal, oral and anal sex.
In women, many STIs even if not symptomatic may predispose to unpleasant problems such as infertility.
At New York Urology Specialists we offer comprehensive testing for STDs in NYC for women. We also treat all common STDs.
Prevention is an important component of sexual health. We advise all women to get HPV vaccination with Gardasil-9. Even if you had HPV vaccination with older Cervarix vaccine, it might make good sense to get the new vaccine that covers 9 different viruses compared to only 2 viral strains for Cervarix vaccine.
HPV Vaccination in Women
HPV is a sexually transmitted disease that can cause unsightly and embarrassing genital warts. The HPV virus can also predispose to cervical cancer. The HPV vaccine is now recommended to all girls and women from age 12-45. Women older than 45 may also benefit from Gardasil-9 vaccination.
At New York Urology Specialists, we offer Gardasil-9 vaccination to all women as well as their sexual partners. Gardasil-9 HPV vaccine may be effective even for women with a history of HPV infection, including women who had a positive PAP smear, genital warts or a positive DNA test for HPV.
The HPV vaccine is recommended even if a woman has a history of genital warts or an abnormal Pap test.
Pregnant women should wait until the completion of pregnancy before getting the HPV vaccine as its effects on the fetus are not known.
