HIV/AIDS & STDs Treatment

Getting treated for an STD other than HIV does not prevent the spread of HIV.

Will treating STDs prevent me from getting HIV?  

No, STD treatments will not prevent HIV infection. If you get treated for an STD, this will help to prevent its complications, and prevent spreading STDs to your sex partners. Treatment for an STD other than HIV does not prevent the spread of HIV.

If you are diagnosed with an STD, talk to your doctor about ways to protect yourself and your partner(s) from getting reinfected with the same STD, or getting HIV.
