What is an STD?

An STD often also called an STI (sexually transmitted infection ) refers to a sexually transmitted disease that is passed from a person to their sexual partner through sexual contact. STD's can be contracted through anal or vagina sex or through having oral sex with someone who has an STI.

Having sex is not the only way to get an STD however, because some will be spread through breastfeeding and through sharing needles.

When should I have a test?

We would always recommend have a full sexual health screen if you notice any symptoms or if you are sleeping with a new sexual partner. If a sexual partner tells you that they have an STI or you have any concerns at all about your sexual health then you should get a test. If you frequently sleep with multiple partners then testing at a three to six month frequency will be safest

What is the treatment for an STD?

the treatment used to treat an STD will vary depending on what type of STD you have developed, it is very important however that both you and your sexual partner are treated for an STD and before you resume any sexual activity. If you do not wait the infection will simply continue to be passed between you.

What is the treatment for a Bacterial STD?

Bacterial infections are usually very easily treated with antibiotics but it is important that you take the full course of your treatment as it has been prescribed. Even if you feel better and your symptoms disappear you must finish taking the course of medication. If the symptoms persist after the course is finished then let your doctor know and you will be seen again.

What is the treatment for a viral STD?

Viral STD's do not respond to antibiotics and while most infections that are viral do not have a cure some will clear up by themselves. Often the most that can be offered will be medication to achieve symptomatic relief and to reduce any risk of the infection being transmitted. One example of this could be genital herpes outbreaks, because while herpes cannot be cured completely medication will reduce the severity and the frequency of the attacks. Treatment can also halt the progression of HIV and drugs given for this condition can also lessen the chance of transmitting HIV to anyone else

Are there any other types of STD?

Yes, because some STD’s are not caused by bacteria or by a virus but are caused by other organisms such as:

  • scabies
  • pubic lice
  • trichomoniasis

Usually these infections can be treated with topical or with oral medication.

FAQs

For our standard blood tests that we take for hepatitis syphilis and HIV we have a turnaround time of just 24 hours. For urine cultures testing for gonorrhoea and chlamydia it can take two to four days to get accurate test results.
There are several things you can do to lessen your risk of getting an STI:
  • Staying with one partner that you trust and having intercourse with them knowing that they are not infected means you will not get an STD and neither will they, provided you both stay faithful.
  • Using condoms will always lessen the chance of you catching and STD and the best condoms to wear will be latex or polyurethane condoms because they provide the best protection. When used correctly, sex can be every bit as enjoyable with your partner.
  • If you use drugs or regularly get drunk then you need to be extra careful because this could affect your ability to make the right decisions when it comes to sex.
  • Never share needles when you are taking drugs because there are a lot of STDS that will be transmitted through blood.
  • Not having sex at all is a guaranteed way to ensure that you never contract an STD.
It is possible to contract herpes after kissing on the mouth. There’s also a small risk of catching HIV if you kiss someone with a cut or a sore on their mouth and in the mouth and you also have a cut or an open sore in your mouth.
There is only one way to know for sure if you have an STD, and that is by being tested. That is because quite often there might be no obvious signs that you have been infected. If you are sexually active and especially if you have multiple partners, there will always be a chance that you will contact an STD. Make an appointment with us now and have a test to put your mind at rest or to get treatment as soon as possible.
In fact, you could catch an STD through having oral sex or anal sex so thinking that as long as you have not had vaginal intercourse and are still a virgin, you will be safe. Some types of STDs actually will typically spread through skin-to-skin contact even when there has not been any penetration.

Condoms can never be consdierd to be 100% failproof but if they are used properly each time, they will help to protect you from contracting an STI that is spread in semen or vaginal secretions. They will not, however, protect against the STD’s that are spread by skin contact.

They do not protect you against STDs that transmit through skin-to-skin contact.

Yes, it is possible to contract an STD more than once.
Yes, most STDs will be identified through a blood test and/or a urine sample. These are the conditions that we typically test for:
  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhoea
  • Herpes
  • Syphilis
  • Mycoplasma Genitalium
  • Hepatitis
  • HIV
There are certain cases when the blood tests are not as accurate as other kinds of testing. It might take one month or longer after getting exposed to some STIs for appropriate blood tests. For example, if HIV has been contracted, it may take almost 28 days to a few months for tests to detect the infection.
When testing for Gonorrhoea, you will get accurate results just a week after there has been exposure, however and with Chlamydia it would usually take 2 weeks after the initial exposure to get an accurate result.
Curing bacterial STDs like Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, Ureaplasma and Mycoplasma Genitalium is usually fairly straightforward with the use of antibiotics. STDs that are caused by viruses can usually be controlled but cannot be treated. A viral STD will be with you forever.
