Pregnancy and aids can be harmful to your
almost born toddlers.
And it also can be harmful for you.
Ask yourself these questions:
-Can pregnant women become infected with STD’s?
Yes, women who are pregnant can become
infected with the same sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) as women who
are not pregnant. Pregnancy does not provide women or their babies any
protection against STDs. The consequences of an STD can be significantly
more serious, even life threatening, for a woman and her baby if the
woman becomes infected with an STD while pregnant. It is important that
women be aware of the harmful effects of STDs and knows how to protect
themselves and their children against infection.
-Can STD’s be treated during pregnancy?
Chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis,
trichomoniasis, and bacterial vaginosis (BV) can be treated and cured
with antibiotics during pregnancy. There is no cure for viral STDs, such
as genital herpes and HIV, but antiviral medication may be appropriate
for pregnant women with herpes and definitely is for those with HIV. For
women who have active genital herpes lesions at the time of delivery, a
cesarean delivery (C-section) may be performed to protect the newborn
against infection. C-section is also an option for some HIV-infected
women. Women who test negative for hepatitis B, may receive the
hepatitis B vaccine during pregnancy.
