STD Testing & Treatment

Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are almost always spread from person to person by vaginal, anal and oral sex.

If you think you may have a STD, get a test from a healthcare provider. Some STDs can be cured using medication prescribed by a medical provider. Do not use home remedies. Remember! Many STDs have no signs and symptoms. Sometimes, the symptoms go away but the STD is still present. Make sure your partner(s) are tested and treated at same time to prevent re-infection.

TESTING SITES

If you believe you are infected with an STD, you must get tested and treated.

  • Many STDs can be cured. Others cannot be cured. But all STDs can and must be treated.
  • Many STDs can be treated with antibiotics. Do exactly what your provider tells you. Be sure to take all of your medicine.
  • You also must tell your sexual partner(s). If they aren't treated, they can get sick. They can spread the STD and even might give it to you again.

Call your primary care provider if you believe you are infected with an STD.
