When should you get tested?

If you have had unprotected sex, it is recommended to take a test for sexually transmitted diseases. Chlamydia is the most widespread venereal disease in Norway, while the spread of gonorrhea is also increasing. Both chlamydia and gonorrhea rarely cause symptoms – many are therefore infected without knowing it, which in turn increases the risk of infecting others. It is therefore important to get tested, despite the fact that you do not feel any symptoms.

Venereal diseases – symptoms and treatment

A venereal disease – also called venereal disease, sexually transmitted disease or infection – is a group of infectious diseases that are transmitted sexually, either through vaginal intercourse, anally or orally. The infection occurs via contact between skin and mucous membranes in the mouth, genitals and intestines, or sometimes via blood. The infection can be caused by bacteria, viruses, mites and lice.

STDs are among the most common infections in the world, and there is effective treatment for most of them. They are easily contagious as you are often completely without symptoms and signs of infection for a long time, and thus often infect others without being aware of it.

When spreading to epididymis:

  • Heat increase in scrotum

Course of treatment

Chlamydia infection is treated with a course of antibiotics for 7 days. It is important that you take the entire course even if you feel better after a few days, then there is a risk that the infection will flare up again if you do not complete the course and that the bacteria will become resistant to the antibiotic (do not respond to the treatment).

Standard treatment for gonorrhea is antibiotics as a single dose. This is injected into the gluteal muscle. After treatment, the patient is observed for 30 minutes. The vast majority will tolerate the treatment well without significant discomfort. Due to increasing resistance, retesting is done 2 weeks after treatment to check whether the treatment was correct. Patients must not have unprotected sex during this period.

Treatment for both chlamydia and gonorrhea are free. When it comes to the injection for gonorrhea, you can choose to book an appointment with your GP yourself or for free at, for example, Sex og Samfunn, Olafiaklinikken or other health centres. You can also book an appointment at one of our clinics for NOK 69,–.

How long after possible infection with sexually transmitted diseases can you get tested?

Days after possible time of infection*:

Gonorrhea: 14 days

Mycoplasma: 14 days

HIV: 12 weeks

Syphilis: 12 weeks

Chlamydia: 14 days

*This applies if you have no symptoms. In the event of symptoms, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.

Are STDs dangerous?

It can be dangerous to go with it untreated for a long time, as the infection can spread in the abdomen, up to the kidneys and further into the bloodstream and cause a serious infection. It can also lead to infertility in both men and women.

Why is a fungal infection not a sexually transmitted disease?

Fungal infection is not considered a sexually transmitted disease as it is not sexually transmitted. STDs are infections that are transmitted through sexual contact.

Should I get tested for STDs often?

If you have new or more sexual partners and have had unprotected intercourse, it is a good idea to get tested afterwards to avoid having an untreated infection and spread this further.

I have been diagnosed with a venereal disease, should I tell my partner?

Absolutely! One is obliged to inform those who may be infected about the disease, so that they can also be tested and treated.

I have just been treated for an STD, but I'm not better. What do I do?

In some cases, it may take some time for the symptoms to subside, as the mucous membranes are irritated. But if you still have discharge, blood, pain etc, contact a doctor again so you can check the answer to the tests and assure you have received the right treatment. In some cases, a control sample is needed 2 weeks after the first treatment.

What is the difference between chlamydia and gonorrhea?

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are both sexually transmitted infections caused by different bacteria. Chlamydia is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, while gonorrhea is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. The symptoms may be similar, but the two infections require different types of treatment.

What sexually transmitted diseases are there?

Some common STDs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, genital herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV), and HIV/AIDS.

How do you know you have sexually transmitted diseases?

Symptoms of STDs can vary, but common indications include painful urination, abnormal discharge from the urethra or vagina, sores or blisters in the genital area, itching or irritation, and general flu-like symptoms. Testing is the surest way to confirm the presence of an STD.

Can you get STDs in your mouth?

Yes, it is possible to get STDs in the mouth through oral sex, including infections such as herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia and HPV.

Can STDs go away on their own?

Sometimes mild infections, such as chlamydia, can go away on their own, but this is not guaranteed. Untreated, STDs can lead to serious complications and spread to others. It is therefore important to seek medical help and treatment if you suspect an infection.

What are the three most common venereal diseases?

The three most common sexually transmitted diseases in Norway are chlamydia, gonorrhea and genital herpes.

What is syphilis?

Syphilis is a sexually transmitted infection caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum. The infection can pass through several stages and can cause a wide range of symptoms such as sores on the genitals, rashes, and in later stages serious complications such as damage to internal organs, the nervous system and the brain. Syphilis can be treated with antibiotics, especially in the early stages, but early diagnosis and treatment are important to prevent serious health problems.

Is gonorrhea worse than chlamydia?

Both gonorrhea and chlamydia are serious sexually transmitted infections that can cause significant health problems if left untreated. Gonorrhea and chlamydia can both lead to complications such as pelvic infections, infertility and an increased risk of pregnancy complications. The difference lies in the specific bacteria that cause the infection and the treatment methods. While chlamydia is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis, gonorrhea is caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhoeae. These infections are treated with different types of antibiotics. It is important to see a doctor for proper testing and treatment if you suspect a sexually transmitted disease.

What are the symptoms of mycoplasma?

The symptoms of mycoplasma can vary, but common symptoms include:

Painful urination
Abnormal discharge from the urethra or vagina
Pain in the lower abdomen
Itching or irritation in the genital area
Increased need to urinate
In women, it can also cause pain during intercourse and bleeding between menstrual periods.

Note that many people with mycoplasma can be asymptomatic, meaning they do not experience any symptoms. It is therefore important to seek medical help and testing if you suspect an infection.
