Sexually Transmitted Infections – Treatments

A positive STI diagnosis can sometimes come as a shock and often raises countless questions – how, when and from whom did I catch it and what does this positive result entail? While some sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV and genital herpes are incurable, most of the more common ones can be treated easily and painlessly with a course of oral antibiotic drugs and have no long term repercussions.

If you know or suspect either you or your partner has got a sexually transmitted disease, it is very important you get tested as soon as possible – the sooner you start treatment, the better your chances of a speedy recovery without any permanent damage or consequences to your health.


To avoid an infection being passed back and forth between sexual partners, it is important that all parties get treated at the same time. If you have got an STI, your partner does not need to get tested and can simply take treatment as a precautionary measure. The same applies vice versa, so if your partner got a positive diagnosis, you can source treatment for yourself without the need for a test, although you can of course always get tested if you wish for added peace of mind.

At Myonlinedoctor UK, you can buy a range of STI home test kits. For further information, please visit your STI Test information pages:

We also offer a range or effective and safe antibiotic and antiviral medicines that can be prescribed to treat a number of STIs. If you have already received a positive diagnosis, you can source treatment directly from us. If you take a urine sample based test through us and if the outcome turns out to be positive, our doctor will prescribe appropriate remedies to you free of charge.

Essentially there are two types of treatment courses. You can either take a one-off dose, which means a high dose of medicine in one go, or a seven day course which means the total dose is spread out over a week. For a number of infections, both options are available and both options are equally effective. Some people are reluctant to take antibiotics over a seven day period or are unable to do so for one reason or another, in which case the one-off dose might be more suitable.

It is generally recommended to opt for the one week course, however if this is inconvenient for you for whatever reason, you can simply choose the other treatment option. The correct dosaging instructions will be printed on the label of your box of medicines. If you have any further questions with regards to your antibiotic treatment, please feel free to get in touch with our doctor at

Generally speaking, all treatments available are well tolerated and have a well established safety profile. Many antibiotics can cause tummy upset or affect the digestive tract as so-called broad spectrum antibiotics do not fight bacteria selectively, which means that they not only destroy the harmful bacteria causing the infection, but also some of the good bacteria living in your gut.
