STI Treatment in Metro Atlanta

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are illnesses that can be spread from one person to another through sexual contact. Here’s a simple overview:

Symptoms

STI symptoms can vary, but common ones include pain or discomfort when urinating, unusual discharge from the genitals, sores, rashes, itching, and pain in the pelvic or genital area. However, some STIs may not cause noticeable symptoms.

Diagnostic Tests

To diagnose STIs, healthcare providers can perform tests like blood tests, urine tests, swabs, or physical exams. The specific test depends on the suspected infection.

Treatment Options

Treatment for STIs typically involves antibiotics (for bacterial infections like chlamydia or gonorrhea) or antiviral medications (for viral infections like herpes or HIV). Some STIs, like HPV or herpes, can’t be cured but can be managed with medications. It’s important to follow the prescribed treatment and notify sexual partners to prevent further spread.

Prevention is crucial: practicing safe sex, using condoms, getting vaccinated (for infections like HPV), and getting regular check-ups with a healthcare provider can help reduce the risk of STIs. Call our office to schedule an appointment at (678) 321-7227.
