Cured?

If you had an STD treated the next step is to figure out if you were really cured. About 80-90% of women will eliminate their HPV infection within 8-24 months. Although some who we think are clear have just reduced their virus amount by about 90% to undetectable levels. The good news about reducing your viral amount to undetectable levels is that cervical cancer is often kept at bay by just having an immune system fight it off. About 10 to 15% of women will come back with positive tests again in the next year of a positive test for CT or GC . does that mean the antibiotics failed? Well, sometimes yes, but most times, probably you were re-exposed. Since the researchers can't honestly be sure who was re-exposed they have a tough time telling women who was just not treated. Test of cure — Testing for Chlamida. trachomatis (CT)
following effected treatment from your gyno with the standard azithromycin or doxycycline is normally not recommended. Exceptions include women who have persisting symptoms or if you are actually pregnant. But be sure to stretch that test out at least more than three weeks or you might test positive for organisms that are there, but not really viable (dead). Guidelines issued by the CDC distinguish tests of cure from repeat screening, which should be considered within the first three to four months after therapy is complete. And also think about what other STDs you should be getting a test for. Once you test positive for one, you might have another.
