Treatments STDs

It is essential to start the treatment quickly after you have tested positive for an STD. With the proper medication, any symptoms will disappear, and you will no longer be contagious to others. For the treatment of an STD, you can contact your GP. Read more about the options below.

Doctor

Treatment via your GP

Our advice is to contact your GP if you have tested positive. Your GP knows you and has insight into your medical file. This is useful because it contains all your medical information, such as your medication and allergies.

We will send you your result(s) in a report. Are you going to the GP? Then take this report with you, so you do not have to get tested again. Your doctor will then prescribe the medication best suited to your situation.

About the treatments

For the treatment of chlamydia, you are prescribed antibiotic pills. These pills kill the bacteria that cause chlamydia. Chlamydia on the vagina, penis or throat is easy to treat. For chlamydia on the anus, it is wise to discuss this in detail with your doctor. This is because the antibiotic used for an anal infection is heavier, and the cure lasts longer.

For gonorrhea, you get antibiotics in the form of an injection. Gonorrhea, therefore, cannot be treated remotely. Therefore, always contact your doctor if you test positive for gonorrhea.

Mycoplasma genitalium is treated with antibiotics, but mycoplasma genitalium does not always need to be treated. The advice is to have mycoplasma treated only if you have symptoms to prevent antibiotic resistance.

To treat syphilis, you usually get a shot of the antibiotic penicillin. This kills the bacteria, making your symptoms and the STD disappear. If you have not been infected for long, one shot is enough. In some cases, three shots are necessary; for example, if you:

  • have had syphilis for a long time;
  • do not know how long you have had syphilis;
  • are pregnant;
  • also have HIV.

Our advice:

You haven't answered enough questions for an advice yet!

You have not had unprotected sex and you have no symptoms, so you probably don't have an STD. Keep in mind that a condom never offers 100% protection. Also, an STD does not always cause symptoms. Do you think you are at risk anyway? Then take a STD test Chlamydia & Gonorrhea Vaginal just to be sure.

Do you think you are at risk anyway? Then take a STD test Chlamydia & Gonorrhea Urine (Penis) just to be sure.

You are getting this result because you have indicated that you had unprotected sex and/or because you have symptoms that are consistent with an STD. Note: only take this test when 14 days have passed since the last unprotected contact. Do you experience symptoms earlier? Then do the test right away.
