Most STDs Have No Cure
People can be very judgmental about STD infections because of where on the body they occur and how they are spread. Fortunately, many STDs can be dealt with fairly easily. If caught early, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis, can be treated with antibiotics. Herpes can't be cured but antiviral drugs can be used to limit outbreaks and reduce the chance of passing the virus on to other partners. Of course, relying on treatment after-the-fact is still a dangerous bet because some STDs can drastically reduce quality of life and even cause death.
