If you think you might have an STD, get checked out. Don’t just hope the STD will go away. Chances are it won’t. All information you give will be private and confidential.
You may feel embarrassed about having an STD, but you must get treatment. That’s the only way you will get well. So, no matter how difficult it may be, see a health care professional for treatment.
Most STDs can be treated with antibiotics. Follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and be sure to take all of your medicine. You also must tell your sexual partner(s). If they aren’t treated, they can spread the STD and they might even reinfect you.
Women and Men:
If you have any of these symptoms, go to an IFHC funded clinic, a STD clinic or your health care provider. Don’t put it off – get checked out right away.
