Every year there are more than 20 million reported cases of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the United States. Even with such a high number, talking to your doctor about the symptoms of a potential STI can be embarrassing. Fortunately, you can get fast and effective chlamydia and gonorrhea treatment online by meeting with one of our online doctors at Good MDs. If you’re new to meeting with an online doctor to receive STI treatment, we have answers to some questions that we hear quite a bit. Keep reading to learn more.
Do I need to take a test?
Diagnosing an STI can often be done remotely with great accuracy. By explaining the signs and symptoms that you’re experiencing directly to your doctor, they can make a decision regarding which infection you have. Because of this, you won’t have to take a test to identify which STI you’ve contracted. Additionally, you might have already been informed by the health department which disease your partner has tested positive for. While gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis can all present similarly in some patients. If you’re not sure which you have, we have a specialized treatment that will treat all three.
Can I get a prescription if I need one?
If you need a prescription to treat your STI (you most often will), we’ll send a prescription to the pharmacy of your choice for you to pick up. Our doctors are licensed to prescribe medication that’s necessary for any treatment that’s needed. Most cases of STIs are not difficult to treat once they’ve been identified. A course of antibiotics will often clear up the infection without further issue. Should the infection persist beyond the course of antibiotics, speak with your doctor about how to proceed.
How much does online treatment cost?
At Good MDs, we specialize in treating STIs and want to provide you with affordable treatment. Our unique STI treatment services are priced out to meet the needs of our patients. Individual treatments for most STIs are priced at $39.99. Although, conditions like epididymitis, mycoplasma and ureaplasma, genital warts, and pelvic inflammatory disease will cost $49.99. Our common STDs combo is designed to specifically treat the trio of chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis as these can sometimes be difficult to differentiate between. This treatment costs $59.99.
Why should I get treatment online?
Getting treatment online for an STI is a great way to make sure that you get the treatment that you need quickly. What’s more, you can have more privacy by visiting with your doctor within the comfort of your own home, rather than going to a clinic and explaining to three or four people why you need to be seen.
STIs that are left untreated can bring further complications beyond the discomfort that they initially present. Depending on which infection you have, it could potentially lead to damage in your nervous system, paralysis, sterilization, blindness, further organ damage, and even death. It’s crucial that you see a medical provider as soon as you have concerns about an STI to ensure that it’s cleared up and you don’t spread it to anyone else.
