Also know, how do I know if my STD is cured?
If symptoms of the 4 curable infections do occur they may include vaginal discharge, urethral discharge in men, genital ulcers, painful urination, and abdominal pain. The only way to know if you have an STI is to be tested.
Secondly, which STDs are curable and which are not? STDs that currently do not have a cure include: Genital herpes – Genital herpes cause lesions on or near the genitals which are typically caused by the HSV-2 strain of the virus, but can be caused by HSV-1. Herpes goes through unpredictable active and inactive phases.
In respect to this, how long does it take to test positive for STDs?
Here's how long after exposure we can get a reliable test result: 2 weeks: gonorrhea and chlamydia (and a pregnancy test too!) 1 week to 3 months: syphilis. 6 weeks to 3 months: HIV, hepatitis C and B.
What happens if you test positive for STD?
If you receive a positive STD test, it is very important to tell your current or previous partner(s) about it so they can also get tested and if necessary, treated. If an STD goes untreated, it can cause more serious health issues, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), infertility, and some types of cancer.
