Common STDs to Watch Out For

Sexual Health | Columbus, OH When it comes to sexual health, it pays to be careful. In fact, preventing and avoiding disease is something we wish we could stress even more. After all, it’s much easier to take a few extra steps of caution than to treat and recover from certain communicable diseases. And, the same goes for sexually transmitted diseases (or STDs). Some STDs are easier to treat than others, and some are going to stick around for a lot longer than you bargained for. So, keep reading to learn more about some of the most common STDs and how to identify them.

Most Common STDs


Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD in the U.S. This disease is spread by vaginal, anal, and oral sex. Symptoms aren’t always present, and only 25% of women and 50% of men show symptoms, which is why it’s important to practice safe sex and get tested regularly. You know you’ll need to call your gynecologist if you’ve noticed an odd discharge from your vagina or penis, or pain or a burning sensation when you pee. After you’ve treated your Chlamydia with antibiotics, you should get yourself re-tested in three months, just to be sure it’s gone and you haven’t given it to your partner(s).


Gonorrhea is another common bacterial STD that people get. You may get Gonorrhea along with Chlamydia, and you may not even be able to tell the difference. The symptoms are similar, and you may feel pain or burning when you pee, or experience an unusual discharge from the vagina. Most men do get symptoms, but only about 20% of women present symptoms. If your partner has something odd going on, it’s worth having both of you get tested. Antibiotics can help you kick the Gonorrhea to the curb.

We can help you assess your sexual health and give you treatment options if you have an STD. Some STDs can be treated with antibiotics, while others may require more aggressive treatment options. Contact us at (614) 755-4200 to schedule a consultation with us today.
