    Hi speedy,

    For pregnant patients with STDs, it is possible for transmission of STDs like HIV/Hepatitis B to the fetus and for the fetus to have congenital abnormalities like in syphilis.

    It's definitely important for pregnant ladies to receive treatment for STDs or to receive anti-viral medications to reduce the chances of spread to the fetus.

    For more details, you can check out the link below.

    Hi speedy,

    No it is not. There is no data of the percentage risk as well.
