What is STD treatment?

Sexually transmitted diseases (STD) or infections (STI) are serious conditions that can develop after having unprotected intercourse. At our clinic, we offer treatment for the following STDs:

  • Prevalent STDs in men
  • Caused by the chlamydia trachomatis bacteria
  • Symptoms include itching, pain while urinating, and a clear discharge
  • Treated using oral or injectable antibiotics
  • Prevalent STDs in men
  • Caused by the gonococcus bacteria or Neisseria gonorrhea
  • Rarely exhibits symptoms but most gonorrhea patients usually observe a yellowish discharge
  • Treated using oral or injectable antibiotics
Genital warts
  • Prevalent STDs worldwide
  • Caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Usually transmitted through close skin contact, often during intercourse
  • Increases your risk of developing cancer
  • Can be treated in numerous ways, including surgery, topical medications, and freezing the lesions using liquid nitrogen
  • HPV vaccine can protect you from the nine most common types of HPVs
Genital herpes
  • Caused by the herpes simplex virus (Type 1 and Type 2)
  • Affects the genitals, skin, and other parts of the body
  • HSV-1 can be transmitted via saliva and if there is a herpes-related sore around a partner’s mouth, it can be spread to the genital area during oral intercourse
  • HSV-2 can affect your genital area, mouth, and anal region
  • Common symptoms include blisters around the anal, mouth, and genital areas. These blisters can potentially break, resulting in a painful sore that takes weeks to heal.
Molluscum contagiosum
  • Contagious viral skin infection that can affect both adults and children
  • Caused by the pox virus
  • Only considered an STI when it occurs in adults not when it occurs among young kids
  • In adults, the transmission usually happens through skin-skin contact or lesions, generally during any form of sexual activity.
  • Symptoms include small, round bumps on the skin
  • Treatment includes prescription medications, and freezing the bumps to the application of chemicals or electrical current.
  • Caused by the treponema pallidum bacterium
  • Serious sexually transmitted infection, warranting early effective treatment to help prevent permanent damage as well as long-term complications
  • Initial symptoms may include a round, hard sore at the infection site, which is generally around the anus, genitals, mouth, or rectum.
  • Subsequent symptoms may result in a life-threatening infection that can affect your nervous system, brain, heart, and other vital organs.
  • Treated using injectable antibiotics
  • Caused by the Trichomona parasite
  • Usually thrives in infected women, but men can also carry this parasite in their urethras, penile tips as well as prostate glands.
  • Treated using oral antibiotics and pessaries
Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)/AIDS
  • Deadly virus that attacks your immune system
  • Can be transmitted through sexual contact as well as other means such as blood transfusion
  • Increases your susceptibility to other infections
  • HIV-positive individuals have an increased risk of catching other types of sexually transmitted infections
  • Can remain in your body, staying in bodily fluids such as semen, breast milk, semen, and rectal and vaginal fluids.
  • Transmission can occur through sharing needles, sexual contact, contact through broken skin, breastfeeding, and during birth.
  • No cure for HIV but treatment can significantly minimise the amount of the virus present in the body to an undetectable level – meaning you cannot transmit the disease to other people.


What should you avoid while on STD treatment?

If you are undergoing an STD treatment, there are a few precautions you must take note of:

  • Refrain from any form of sexual activity until you have completed your treatment.
  • In some instances, you may have to do repeat testing to verify you are truly cured.
How do I know if I have an STD/STI?
Many sexually transmitted infections will not cause any visible symptoms. If you suspect you have a particular STI, don’t wait until symptoms appear before you seek medical assistance. Instead, seek medical advice if you think you have been exposed to an STD/STI.
