Guest: David Soper
The number of women being treated for sexually transmitted infections in the United States is growing at an alarming rate, especially among women between the ages of 19 and 24. One of the biggest obstacles in treating these infections is persuading primary physicians to screen at-risk patients. Dr. David Soper, director of the division of gynecology and general obstetrics at the Medical University of South Carolina, discusses with host Dr. Lisa Mazzullo the treatment options for women and their partners, screening strategies and new trends in treating this ever-growing problem for young women.
