“We need to just approach STIs as the medical conditions they are because until we do, and until we take those stigmas away, people will truly have resistance to discussing it, hesitance to discussing it, and resistance to diagnosis and intervention,” says Ashley Winter, MD.

In this episode, Urology Times® Assistant Editor Janelle Hart spoke with Ashley Winter, MD. She discusses why the misconceptions of sexually transmitted diseases and infections are hindering patients from seeking appropriate care, and how urologists can help to rid of these misconceptions.
