Learn about common STIs in Australia and how to treat them.

At .doctor, we believe in providing comprehensive information about various health conditions to empower our patients. STIs are infections transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, or oral sex, as well as through the sharing of sex toys. They can affect anyone who is sexually active, regardless of age, gender, or sexual orientation.

At .doctor, we emphasize the importance of regular STI testing, especially for those who are sexually active or have multiple partners. Early detection and treatment are crucial for managing STIs and preventing further complications. Our bulk billing General Practitioner practice in Australia offers discreet and confidential referrals for STI testing and treatment services.

Common Sexually Transmitted Infections in Australia:

  1. Chlamydia:
  • Symptoms: Often asymptomatic, but may include abnormal discharge, burning sensation while urinating, pelvic pain, and pain during intercourse.
  • Causes: Caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis and spreads through unprotected sexual contact.
  • Treatment: Easily treatable with antibiotics. Early detection is crucial to prevent complications.
  1. Gonorrhea:
  • Symptoms: Some people may not show any symptoms, but others may experience painful urination, abnormal discharge, and pelvic pain.
  • Causes: Caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae and transmitted through unprotected sexual activity.
  • Treatment: Can be treated with antibiotics. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are essential to prevent complications and avoid spreading the infection.
  1. Human Papillomavirus (HPV):
  • Symptoms: Many types of HPV are asymptomatic, but some strains can cause genital warts or lead to cervical cancer in females.
  • Causes: HPV spreads through skin-to-skin contact during sexual activity.
  • Treatment: While there is no cure for HPV, genital warts can be treated and monitored by a healthcare professional.
  1. Herpes (HSV):
  • Symptoms: Painful sores or blisters on or around the genital area or mouth.
  • Causes: Herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and type 2 can be transmitted through sexual contact.
  • Treatment: While there is no cure for herpes, antiviral medications can help manage and reduce outbreaks.
  1. Syphilis:
  • Symptoms: The infection progresses through stages and can cause sores, rashes, fever, and fatigue.
  • Causes: Caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum and transmitted through sexual activity or from mother to child during pregnancy.
  • Treatment: Early-stage syphilis is treatable with antibiotics. Regular testing is vital to ensure timely diagnosis and treatment.

At .doctor, we emphasize the importance of regular STI testing, especially for those who are sexually active or have multiple partners. Early detection and treatment are crucial for managing STIs and preventing further complications. Our bulk billing General Practitioner practice in Australia offers discreet and confidential STI testing and treatment services.

Remember, prevention is key to safeguarding your sexual health. Always practice safe sex by using condoms and regularly communicate with your partner about STI testing and prevention. If you suspect you may have an STI or have any concerns about your sexual health, don’t hesitate to reach out to our expert medical team at .doctor for professional advice and care. Stay informed, stay safe, and take charge of your sexual health!
