Pregnancy & Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections that can be passed on during sex, and in some cases can be passed from mother to child. If left untreated, STIs can cause serious problems for both mother and child. Numerous sexually transmitted diseases--syphilis, gonococcal infections, group B beta-hemolytic streptococcal infection, chlamydial infections, mycoplasmas, herpes simplex virus, cytomegalovirus infections, hepatitis B viral infections, fungal infection, trichomonas vaginalis, condylomata acuminata, and scabies--are of concern when they occur during pregnancy, either because of their potential adverse effects on the fetus or the chance of a modified reaction in the pregnant woman.
