STD Advice Column
Which STDs are Curable or can be Treated?


Dear STD Advice,
Can you tell me which STDs are curable or can be treated? ~ Curable


Dear Curable,

Several STDs are curable, which is why it is important that a person gets an STD test.

The STDs that can be cured with antibiotics are:

Chlamydia
Gonorrhea
Syphilis
Trichomonas

The STDs that cannot be cured, but can be treated, are:

HPV (and Genital Warts)
Herpes

And in a class of its own is HIV. There are several current and emerging treatment options (not cures) for HIV.

When you go in for your STD test, be sure to be specific about your concerns with your physician, particularly when it comes to when you believe you may have been exposed to an STD. Be sure to ask if the physician recommends a separate test later as some STDs, like HIV, may take longer to show up. For example, while most STDs can be accurately tested for soon after exposure, the CDC states that a person with concerns for HIV should be tested for most accurate results about six months after the possible exposure.


If you have a question for the STD Advice column, simply put your question in the anonymous form below and click Submit. Once you click Submit, your question will be anonymously emailed to us. While we can't answer or publish all questions, we do try to questions within a one week period of submission. Check back to see if yours is answered.



Only a physician can properly diagnose whether or not you have an STD. Thus it is important that you get an STD test done if you have a concern. None of the advice given in this column is a substitute for physician advice.

If you think you may have a sexually transmitted disease, you should see a physician immediately to be properly diagnosed and treated. You should not try to diagnose or treat symptoms on your own.
