Treatment For Sexually Transmitted Diseases

 Commonly called STDs, sexually transmitted diseases are infections spread from person to person through intimate genital contact (that includes genital contact with the mouth or anus). STDs are an embarrassing condition for anyone, but the risk of developing a serious complication should far outweigh any embarrassment in seeking medical help.

Symptoms

  • Bumps, rashes or sores near the vagina, penis, anus or mouth
  • Painful urination, loose stools, discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Weight loss, night sweats, aches associated with fever
  • Painful intercourse or itching near the penis or vagina

Who is at risk?

Any sexually active person is at risk.

Treatment

Depending on the type of STD, there may be a prescription medication or shot that will relieve your symptoms. Gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis are common and are all treatable. Genital herpes and HIV are permanent conditions with treatment available to improve your quality of life. Talk to your doctor about the options in your particular case.

Emergency Warning Signs: When should I see a doctor?

STDs in pregnant women can cause early labor. If symptoms persist in a pregnant woman, medical attention is necessary. Anyone with a suspected STD that has had contact with someone not known to them or someone in a high risk category for HIV should seek medical advice and treatment.
