Sexually Transmitted Infections

Bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs), such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia, and syphilis, are increasing across Ontario and locally, in Windsor and Essex County. These infections pose a serious health risk to individuals and their partners. Complications from acquiring these infections range from chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and sterility, to more systemic infections of other organs, such as the heart and brain.
