While contracting a sexually transmitted disease (STD) can be embarrassing, it’s actually very common. We know that going to the doctor in person to receive treatment for these infections can be uncomfortable. Luckily, we live in a digital era where getting a prescription for most STDs is as easy as grocery shopping online.
To make receiving treatment more accessible and timely, Good MDs offers telehealth visits for STI and STD prescriptions. If you need to discuss treatment with a physician and get prescribed STD drugs today, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll explain some of the most common STDs you can get online treatment for and walk you through the steps of how to get treated.
Common STDs you can get treatment for online
Going to the doctor in person to get prescribed medicine for your STD is a thing of the past in most cases. You can typically be treated online for the following STDs:
- Chlamydia: This is a common STD caused by bacteria that affects both men and women in all age groups. It’s not difficult to treat once you have it. However, if left untreated, it can lead to more serious health problems.
- Gonorrhea: This common STD, also known as the clap, is caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria. While gonorrhea can cause signs and symptoms, including vaginal or penile discharge and pain when urinating or during sex, it often comes with no hints at all. Left untreated, it can cause severe complications, including miscarriage, infertility, arthritis, and blindness.
- Syphilis: This STD progresses in three stages, typically over some time. In the first stage, syphilis presents as painless ulcers on the genitals or mouth. During the second stage, syphilis develops into a rash or painless ulcers and sores on the palms and bottoms of the feet. Late stages of syphilis can cause tumors, blindness, and paralysis.
In addition to getting treated for STDs, you can also receive treatment for urinary tract infections (UTI) and bacterial vaginosis online.
Steps to getting STD online treatment
There are several places like Good MDs that offer same-day online STD treatment. Whether you have a positive test result or you were recently notified by a partner who tested positive, getting treatment for your STD has never been easier.
Step 1: Answer health questions
While this may seem like a no-brainer, you’ll need to answer a few questions before you get a prescription to treat your STD. You’ll be required to tell your online doctor about your general health, medical history, and current symptoms.
Step 2: Treatment
Your medical history will be reviewed by a medical professional who will develop a personalized treatment plan to treat your STD. It typically only takes a couple of hours until your prescription is sent to your pharmacy of choice.
Step 3: Pick up your prescription
The last step is pretty straightforward. You’ll head to the pharmacy to pick up your prescription, so you can begin taking your prescribed medication right away.
