  • Overview

    In 2016, there were more than two million cases of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis reported in the United States. Women and infants, in particular, are at significant risk for long-term consequences of STDs if left undiagnosed or are untreated resulting in serious health consequences, including infertility, life-threatening ectopic pregnancy, and stillbirth in infants.

    Join Dr. Phillip Heine, Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology and Pediatrics at Duke University Medical Center in Durham, NC, as he discusses the role of the obstetrician and gynecologist can have when diagnosing and testing for STI in this patient population.
