STD Prevention & Treatment


STD Prevention and Treatment in Jacksonville, FL

Sexual Health is an essential element of overall health and well-being. Ensuring access to STD information, including comprehensive, accurate information on how to prevent STDs, is an integral part of our patient care. Florida Urogynecology offers STD screenings, diagnosis, and treatment of sexually transmitted infections (STI). Women of any age who have sexual contact with another person is at risk of getting an STI.


Talking about your sexual health might make you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed. However, if you talk openly and honestly with your doctor about your body and concerns, they can give you better care and advice.

What Causes STIs?

STIs are caused by infections with bacteria or viruses. STIs caused by bacteria are treated with antibiotics. STIs caused by viruses cannot be cured, but symptoms can be treated. Even if there are no symptoms, tests can be done to diagnose infection. Testing will help you know if you have an STI so you can take steps to prevent passing it to others.

Different Types of STIs

  • Chlamydia
  • Gonorrhea
  • Syphilis
  • Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
  • Genital herpes
  • Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C
  • Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
  • Trichomoniasis (vaginitis)

How Can I Protect Myself from STIs?

There are many ways you can reduce your risk of getting an STI:

  • Abstinence–The most reliable way to avoid infection is to not have sex.
  • Use a condom—Using a latex condom every time you have sex reduces the risk of infection. If you have latex allergies, synthetic non-latex condoms can be used. But it is important to note that these condoms have higher breakage rates than latex condoms.
  • Know your sexual partners—The more partners you or your partners have, the higher your risk of getting an STI.
  • Get vaccines— Vaccines are safe, effective, and recommended ways to prevent Hepatitis B and human papillomavirus (HPV).
