STD Treatment

Trichomoniasis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea are sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that can co-occur, due to their shared mode of transmission through sexual contact. In fact, it's not uncommon for individuals to be infected with more than one of these infections simultaneously. Because these infections can have similar or overlapping symptoms, those who are co-infected by all three often do not notice and run the risk of misdiagnosis or failing to clear the infection entirely when only getting one type of infection tested or treated. Each of these infections increases the risk of transmission of the others, making regular screenings and prompt treatment vital for maintaining sexual health.

Anyone who is sexually active can be infected with trichomoniasis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. The risk is higher among individuals with multiple sexual partners, those who have unprotected sex, and those who have had an STI before. All three infections are treatable with specific antibiotics, and it's essential to address all present infections to effectively manage and cure them. This comprehensive treatment can reduce transmission to sexual partners, reduce long-term health complications due to untreated sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), and ensure better overall sexual well-being.

Chlamydia: Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It is most often transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex, with an infected person. The bacteria can infect the genital tract, throat, rectum, and even the eyes. Chlamydia is known for often being asymptomatic, meaning many people who are infected do not experience noticeable symptoms, which can lead to its spread unknowingly. It is one of the most common bacterial STIs globally and often goes unnoticed, especially in the early stages. Many people experience only mild symptoms. Because of its potential to be symptom-free, regular screening is important for sexually active individuals to detect and treat the infection promptly.

Gonorrhea: Caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae, gonorrhea is another sexually transmitted infection. It is transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, and oral sex. The bacterium can infect the genitals, throat, and rectum. Gonorrhea is particularly known for its ability to infect and show symptoms in multiple areas of the body. Like chlamydia, it can sometimes be asymptomatic, which contributes to its spread. Regular screening and safe sex practices are important for its prevention and control.

Trichomoniasis: Trichomoniasis (or “trich”) is caused by the protozoan parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. It is primarily transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal sex, and can infect the genital and urinary tract in both men and women. Trichomoniasis can also be spread through contact with damp or moist objects like towels or wet clothing, although this is less common. The infection is known for being more symptomatic in women than in men, and in many cases, it is asymptomatic, particularly in men, which can lead to its unknowing transmission. Symptoms, when they occur, can vary from mild discomfort to more severe, including itching, discharge, and discomfort during urination.

Chlamydia, gonorrhea, and trichomoniasis can usually be diagnosed with a urine or swab sample. In some cases, the doctor may need a sample from the cervix, vagina, throat, or anus.

NOTE: Lab testing is NOT required prior to treatment with Call-On-Doc if you have been exposed to chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, or are experiencing symptoms. We offer both at-home test kits and in-person lab testing. Two to three weeks after treatment, we recommend follow-up testing to confirm the infection has cleared.

Practicing safe sex is key to preventing trichomoniasis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. This includes using condoms correctly every time during vaginal sex, as well as anal and oral sex. Limiting the number of sexual partners and maintaining mutual monogamy can also significantly reduce the risk. Regular STI screenings are crucial, especially if you have multiple partners, as these infections can often be asymptomatic. 

Open and honest communication with sexual partners about STI status and testing is important. Abstaining from sex remains the most effective way to avoid these STIs. Aside from celibacy and a strict monogamous relationship, there is no for sure way to prevent any of the three infections. Additionally, getting successfully treated for any does not mean immunity, with reinfection always being a possibility. Early detection through screening and prompt treatment can prevent the complications associated with these infections.

Co-infections are not uncommon with trichomoniasis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea, as each is commonly found to infect the same host as other STDs at the same time. In the event that you are infected with all three, addressing all three infections at once ensures comprehensive treatment, reduces the risk of reinfection, and helps prevent potential complications. Additionally, treating these STIs concurrently is vital for public health, as it curbs the spread of these infections within the community. 

By taking this approach, individuals can effectively clear multiple infections, avoid complications like pelvic inflammatory disease or infertility, and contribute to the overall reduction of these STIs in the population, promoting their own health and that of their sexual partners.
