When to Seek Treatment for an STD

STDs typically don’t present a life-threatening emergency but ignoring them is ill-advised. Seek treatment promptly at Emergency One Urgent Care or with your primary care provider to enhance your sexual health, prevent infection spread, and avert potential complications. If left untreated, severe cases of sexually transmitted infections may result in:

Infertility
Pregnancy complications
Arthritis
Eye inflammation
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
Certain cancers

While some STDs respond well to common antibiotics, others are manageable with antiviral drugs. Notably, many STDs manifest no noticeable symptoms, emphasizing the importance of not overlooking them. If diagnosed, refrain from unprotected sex and notify prior partners. Before initiating a sexual relationship, both partners should undergo STD testing.
