Sexually Transmitted Infections (STI)


Sexually Transmitted Infections

A sexually transmitted infection (STI), also known as a sexually transmitted disease (STD), is a significant condition that can occur following sexual activity. Common symptoms of STIs include itching and burning in the genital area. The positive aspect is that most STIs can be treated and cured, though not all types. It’s important to note that you can contract an STI again, even after successful treatment.

DoxyPEP treatment from Affinia Healthcare

Affinia Healthcare is now offering DoxyPEP, a doxycycline post-exposure preventative treatment for syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea. Some have referred to it as the ‘morning after pill’ for bacterial STIs.

DoxyPEP is for individuals assigned male at birth and:
• Have been diagnosed with at least one bacterial STI (i.e., syphilis, chlamydia, and gonorrhea) in the last 12 months
• Have had condomless oral and/or anal sexual contact with at least one individual assigned male at birth in the last 12 months

The CDC currently recommends doxycycline post-exposure prophylaxis for gay, bisexual, MSM (men who have sex with other men), and transgender women. Research shows states that provide DoxyPEP have seen significant decreases in chlamydia and syphilis cases among these at-risk groups.
