Doxycycline and STD treatment
There are certain antibiotics that can be very effective in treating amoeba and bacterial infections that are generally characterized as sexually transmitted diseases. However, some common side effects of using antibiotics are nausea and stomach discomfort. These drugs should be taken with a full glass of water, and depending on your tolerance you may need to take a full meal in order to make the drug work better. Most antibiotic medications are used in a wide range of conditions ranging from respiratory tract infections to sexually transmitted diseases, from urinary tract problems to acne. And you may find yourself taking the same drug for treating syphilis and throat infection.
Despite the fact that STDs have become quite widespread, it still seems to be a taboo for discussion in our society as the large public is not willing to discuss these diseases and their treatment openly. People know that there's a problem with the raise in rates of sexually transmitted diseases infection, yet no one is speaking out loud about the subject, and when someone gets infected the treatment is usually conducted in strict confidence.
In most cases STDs can be cured because a large part of them consists of simple bacterial infections that affect the genitals, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia or syphilis. These are the most widespread STDs, and they can have no symptoms at the initial stage, making the patient believe that he or she is perfectly healthy and able to have unprotected sex, leading to further spread of the infection.
- Gonorrhea is considered as the most common sexually transmitted disease and is usually treated with a course of antibiotics like Doxycycline. If left untreated, this infection can lead to inflammation in the urinary tract and further infertility.
- Chlamydia is another common disease that is transmitted sexually. It is treatable, but as with other STDs if it is diagnosed at a later stage and not treated it may severely damage the reproductive system and lead to infertility both in men and women.
- Syphilis was a very serious and even deadly health problem in the past before penicillin was discovered. However, even if using advanced antibiotics like Doxycycline, if the disease is diagnosed at a later stage a course of treatment won't reverse the damage to tissue and organs syphilis is know for. The effects are not limited to infertility and can actually lead to death if left untreated.
Another very important aspect is the fact that sexually transmitted diseases can appear again even if they already were treated in the past. A treatment course won't make you immune to gonorrhea or syphilis and you still have to think about protection if you want to avoid re-infection. Otherwise you risk experiencing the same problems again and again, which will significantly impact your health in general.
If you suspect that the person you had sex with is infected or you are infected, don't lay off your doctor visits – the earlier you are diagnosed with a disease, the better even if there are no visible symptoms of the problem. The earlier you start treating a STD the easier it will be to do it and you will be able to avoid permanent damage to the body (especially in case of syphilis). However, the best way to treat STDs is not taking antibiotics like Doxycycline but to use protection during sex for preventing the transition of diseases in the first place.
When the use of topical lotions and creams has failed, the use of an antibiotic like Doxycycline will often reduce acne or completely cure it.
