STI Treatment FAQs
How Do I Know I Have An STI?
Did you know that most STIs don’t have any symptoms at all, but they can still be transmitted to your partner? Testing is the only way to know for sure if you have an STI. The guideline for STI testing is that if you are sexually active, you should get tested annually. In addition, you should be tested if you use injection drugs or share needles with someone you know has an STI.
What STIs Do You Test For?
Our clinic can provide a no-cost test for the following STIs:
- Herpes (HSV-2)
- And others
We provide a welcoming atmosphere that puts our patients at ease, because getting tested should be simple and stress-free. If you are diagnosed with an STI, we can move into the treatment phase of your care.
How Are STIs Treated?
Depending on the diagnosis, STIs can be treated with antibiotics or antiviral medications.
Antibiotics treat bacterial and parasitic infections, including syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia.
Antiviral Drugs treat herpes and HIV.
Although not exactly a treatment, there are preventative medications that can be taken to keep you from getting infections like HIV. We can talk with you about PrEP for HIV if you are HIV-negative and at risk.
Can STIs Be Cured?
Most STIs can be cured with treatment. Viral infections like herpes and HIV can’t be cured, but they can be controlled with medication. The best way to treat an STI is to start treatment medication as soon as possible.
What Do I Do If I’m Diagnosed With An STI?
First of all, know that you are not alone! STIs are extremely common. Studies show that over half of people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with an STI in their lifetime. Feel better? Good! Let’s develop a treatment plan to get you back to your everyday life.
