Take care of yourself and your sexual partners by making STI testing a routine part of your health care, especially if you are considering becoming pregnant or are currently pregnant. Certain STIs, including
HIV, can be passed from pregnant person to baby during pregnancy or delivery. Other STIs, like
gonorrhea can be passed from pregnant person to baby during delivery.
