If you test positive for an STD, don’t panic. Most infections can be easily treated with antibiotics or antiviral medications, especially if they’re caught early. At NovaMed Urgent Care, we offer prompt, confidential treatment for a range of STDs, so you can get the care you need to feel better and reduce your risk of complications.
Depending on your diagnosis, your treatment plan may include one or more of the following:
- Antibiotics: These are used to treat bacterial infections such as chlamydia and gonorrhea. Antibiotics are usually given as a pill or injection, and most people start feeling better within a few days.
- Antiviral medications: These are used to treat viral infections such as herpes and HIV. Antiviral medications can help manage symptoms and reduce the risk of transmission to others. Follow-up testing: Depending on your infection, we may recommend follow-up testing to ensure that the treatment was successful and the infection has been cleared.
