STD Treatment

 

Overview

If you’ve had a sexual partner with an STD, multiple sexual partners, or signs of an STD, getting yourself tested or treated is one of the smartest things you can do for your health. Testing is so important because STD doesn’t always manifest in noticeable symptoms. Many men live with un-diagnosed STD and suffer hidden health consequences as a result.

What kind of STD testing do you need?

This depends in part on presenting symptoms, such as:

  • Genital warts or blisters
  • Blisters in mouth
  • Pain during urination or ejaculation
  • Ususal discharge

It also depends on your age, medical history, sexual history and activity, and the sexual and medical history of your sexual partner(s). At least some STD testing is recommended for all young to mid-aged men, as STD doesn’t always manifest symptoms until advanced.

  • HIV – All adults under the age of 64 (recommended by CDC)
  • HPV and Herpes* – Patients with genital warts or blisters in mouth or genital area.
  • Hepatitis C* – All men
  • Chlamydia and Gonorrhea – Men who have been sexually active with men

*Often does not manifest symptoms until advanced. Testing highly recommended.

What does treatment involve?

Some kinds of STD can be eliminated with medication, such as antibiotics and antivirals. Others can be controlled and treated with oral and topical medications, but not entirely eliminated. Sexual partners always need to be informed and tested when one partner tests positive for an STD.

What are some STD risk factors?

  • Lack of protection
  • Hidden history – If you or a partner isn’t willing to be honest about sexual/medical history, that may be a red flag.
  • Multiple partners – The more sexual partners you have, the more the risk of contracting STD.
  • Relationship choices – You make the decisions that will be best for you.
