Being diagnosed with an STI can be a distressing and upsetting experience, but the good news is that there are treatments available for every kind of STI which can either cure or manage the infection. Once you have received a diagnosis, you can find the treatment you need to alleviate the symptoms or eradicate the infection entirely.
Prescription treatments have been developed specifically to either manage or cure a particular STI. Each medication achieves this in a different way, for example by targeting specific compounds or aiding the body's immune system. You can find several of the most common antivirals and antibiotics used to treat STIs here at OnlineClinic:
Aciclovir is clinically proven to be an effective treatment for the management of genital herpes. It can help to push the virus into its dormant state, thereby reducing the length of an outbreak. It is possible to take Aciclovir as a long-term treatment to prevent further outbreaks.
Azithromycin is another antibiotic prescribed as an effective treatment for bacterial infections such as ureaplasma urealyticum, chlamydia and non-specific urethritis. It can also be prescribed alongside Cefixime as a treatment for gonorrhoea. Azithromycin is generally prescribed as a short high dosage treatment to cure an infection.
Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to treat a number of bacterial STIs, including non-specific urethritis, mycoplasma genitalium and ureaplasma urealyticum. This medication is usually prescribed to be taken as a low-dose course of treatment over several days, making it a suitable choice for people who may be sensitive to highly concentrated medications.
Gonorrhoea was considered fairly easy to treat until quite recently, when it was found that strains of gonorrhoea, particularly pharyngeal gonorrhoea, were becoming resistant to the medications that had been used to cure the infection.
Though there are cures available for most infections, the best way to protect yourself from STIs is to make sure you do not become infected in the first place. Avoiding contracting an STI is simple; you just need to make sure you are using adequate protection every time you engage in unprotected sexual activity, for example by using condoms or dental dams. You should undergo regular STI testing, especially if you have had unprotected sex, and make sure that any new sexual partner has also done this.
