Does an STD test show that you have an STD? Then good aftercare is important to get rid of your STD and to prevent further complaints (and recurrence). If you have a positive result for an STD test that you have seen online with us, there are a number of options.
Make an appointment with the doctor
In case of a positive test result, our first advice is always to make an appointment with your doctor. Your general practitioner generally knows your (medical) situation best and can help you with a positive result. Think of good information, correct treatment and customized aftercare.
Request medication immediately
Another option is to request the required medication directly from us. You can do that on the same page where you can see your positive result (or via the result link in your order confirmation). In that case, the pharmacy will contact you and you can have medication delivered to your home. As you are used to from us, the medication in an unrecognizable packaging will usually be delivered within 1-2 working days. So discreet and fast shipping.
If you live in Groningen and you don't have a doctor, you can make an appointment here immediately make an appointment with StudentArts for appropriate aftercare.
Of course you can always send us an email if you have any questions or if you want to talk about aftercare. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information about aftercare
- Consult with us or with your doctor who you should warn. Usually you have to warn sex partners from the last 6 months. Sometimes from one or more years ago.
- You can also warn your sexual partners online via partnerwaarschuwing.nl. This is done via a code that you can get from us, so send an email to email@example.com if you want to warn your partners (anonymously). Then we will give you a code for partnerwarning.nl.
- If you are warned about an STD, take this seriously. Take an STD test, even if you have no complaints.
With a positive result, we recommend that you do not have any form of sex for at least a week after completing the course of antibiotics. We also advise against masturbating for the first week, because this can cause very small cracks in the mucous membrane, so that any 'STD bacteria' that are still present can lead to contamination again.
Prevention is better than cure, so keep that in mind safe sex and try to discuss these things with your partner(s).
If you still have questions or would like to talk about your STD test or the result, you can always contact us for aftercare. So do not hesitate to contact us! See the contact information at the bottom of the pages on this website. If you prefer to talk to your own doctor, you can of course schedule a consultation. You are also more than welcome to contact StudentArts: the general practice in Groningen that SoaStudentArts devised and implemented.
