Is There A Cure For Any Type Of Std?

Postby dietz30 » Thu Oct 05, 2017 4:02 am

Curable

Syphilis, gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis, crabs.

Incurable and really dangerous

HIV.
Significant advances have been made in controlling the infection, so many people with HIV live fairly normal lives.

Other

Herpes - incurable, but mostly just inconvenient.
Symptoms can be reduced or eliminated with medication.

HPV (genital warts) - mostly just embarrassing.
Warts can be removed, and the infection is self-limiting in most people.

HPV (specific types) - symptomless in most people, but carries some risk of causing cervical cancer.
Not curable, but treatable, and vaccines are available.

When you speak of curing an disease, you are saying that it is being destroyed and will not take your life.

Syphilis is one of the worse incurable STDs a person can have because it's properties multiply in your bloodstream and is resistant to penicillin.
It is also a progressive disease and will eventually attack your central nervous system and claim your life.

Herpes is incurable and if managed will not develop into any major disabilities.

The ones caused by bacteria are curable. The ones caused by a virus are usually not cured but can be manged with medication. Some STD cause by viruses may be non symptomatic like HPV.
