If I've been treated for an STD once, can I get it again?
Having been treated once for a bacterial STD like gonorrhea, syphilis or chlamydia does NOT protect you from future infections. Every day at City Clinic, we see patients with a new STD that they have had before. Each germ is a little different and your immune system does not protect you. Condoms are the most effective way to protect yourself against transmission of STDs, including HIV.
To your health,
