Many sexually-transmitted diseases can be treated with antibiotic and antiviral medications. These diseases include chlamydia, herpes, syphilis, and trichomoniasis. Others need more analysis or treatment in a doctor’s office.
There are many treatment routes
For genital warts, your gynecologist can treat you in his or her office or provide a prescription medication you can apply at home multiple times each week. The warts can also be removed with surgery, whether by freezing them off, using a laser, or making incisions to remove them.
Cases of HIV and hepatitis B require consultation with a specialist for evaluation and then treatment planning. The types of medications chosen will be dictated by the condition of the liver, presence of antigens, and the proliferation of the virus.
Early detection and treatment is key
Regardless of the type of STD, there are treatment options available. While some sexual infections can be fatal, early detection can help.
