STD Treatment Q & A

Care Access Adult Health Clinic

What are common symptoms associated with STDs?

Sexually transmitted diseases can have a wide variety of symptoms, but several common signs may indicate a potential problem. You shouldn't overlook your symptoms, so you must seek help immediately for the following:

  • Burning or pain during urination
  • Painful intercourse
  • Any type of discharge from the vagina or penis, especially if they have color or a strong odor
  • Low-grade fever that lasts longer than two or three days
  • Abdominal pain
  • Visible rash or skin discoloration
  • Intense itching on or near the genitals


While some of these symptoms may be visible, others won't. It’s important to note when symptoms start and how quickly they increase in severity.

If you begin to experience any of these symptoms, you can find the answers you need by scheduling an appointment with Nurse Practitioner Adeniran.


How are STDs diagnosed?

Nurse Practitioner Adeniran has many different ways to test for common STDs. She can perform blood tests, urine tests, and vaginal swabs to determine the types of bacteria or viruses that are present. STD screenings are completely confidential.

Once she's received the results of the screening and reviewed the findings from your physical examination, she'll be able to offer a diagnosis. She'll also be able to discuss possible treatment options that will be most effective, as well as offer ideas on how to prevent further exposure.


How are STDs treated?

Most STDs are easily treated with antibiotics and antiviral medications. Nurse Practitioner Adeniran will give you the medications you need and explicit instructions to follow that will fight the infection and prevent transmission of the disease to others. She can answer any questions you have concerning how STDs are passed from one person to another and how to prevent them.

STDs like HIV and Herpes aren't curable. Instead, Nurse Practitioner Adeniran will offer you a management plan for reducing the symptoms and control any visible signs of the disease. With these types of STDs, long-term care is a necessity and education is essential when it comes to maintaining good health and overall well-being.
