Not everyone has these symptoms, but in people who do, they usually last for 1 to 2 weeks. Once your symptoms go away, you may not have any more symptoms for many years, even if the infection stays in your body. Non-viral STDs, such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, can be cured. However, they usually have no symptoms, or symptoms may come and go, making it look like an infection went away when it actually didn't.

You can't know your STD status without getting tested, and you can't self-diagnose an STD based on symptoms and then assume that the infection is gone when your symptoms go away. Getting tested can uncover a problem and pave the way for treatment. For most people, human papillomavirus (HPV) and hepatitis B will go away on their own. Yes, the right treatment can cure chlamydia.

It's important that you take all the medicines your healthcare provider gives you to cure the infection. Do not share your chlamydia medication with anyone. When taken correctly, it will stop the infection and may lower your chances of having problems later on. Although medicines will stop the infection, they won't repair any permanent damage caused by the disease.

Men can get trichomoniasis, but they usually have no symptoms and are not tested for trichomoniasis as part of routine STI screening.
