Question: Can I cure STDs?

Answer: Yes, you can and no, you can’t. That depends on the certain STD, for how long you have it, general condition of your body and many other factors. The best way to find out is to ask qualified doctor and make some tests. Don’t be afraid to know the truth as the earlier you’ll start the treatment – the better could be your results.

Also, as you may know, there are two main STD-types: viral and bacterial. The first one are not curable. You can take under control it’s symptoms, but you can’t get rid of it. As for the bacterial STDs – they are usually treated by antibiotic course. You should consult with the doctor in any way and be very exact in following the instructions.
