Sexually Transmitted Diseases: The most important facts at a glance

Stickman_MiSANTO_Sexually transmitted diseases

Around 30 diseases are considered STDs worldwide. They are often also referred to as sexually transmitted infections (STI) or sexually transmitted diseases (STD). 

These include: 

  • Chlamydia 
  • Gonorrhea or infection with gonococci (also known as gonorrhea). 
  • Syphilis
  • Infection with mycoplasma
  • Trichomonas vaginalis
  • Infection with HIV

Human papillomaviruses (HPV) are often counted among the sexually transmitted diseases. MiSANTO has its "own" home test for HPV.

 

Symptoms in Sexually Transmitted Diseases are often not noticeable


STD symptoms vary greatly depending on the infection. For example, an infection with Trichomonas vaginalis often causes no symptoms at all at the beginning. But an infection can certainly have serious consequences. 

Burning during urination as a sign in sexually transmitted diseases


The first signs of chlamydia or gonococci may be a burning sensation during urination or discharge from the penis or vagina. In addition, ulcers can form in the affected areas of the body. So often in the genital or throat area. 

Different effects due to STDs in men and women


Depending on the pathogen, chronic urethral infection, narrowing of the foreskin, or the formation of a fistula can be the result of undiagnosed STDs in men

In women, it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, or even infertility. 

Consequences of STIs can go as far as AIDS


In the worst case, an HIV infection can turn into AIDS. Or in the case of syphilis, there is a risk of infection of the heart, blood vessels or brain. 

Therefore: Sex without a condom with a new partner? Then always do an STD test to be able to react properly. 

 

Curability in STDs depends on the nature of the pathogens


This also varies depending on the STD. For example, mycoplasma can be treated well with antibiotics. The same applies to Trichomonas vaginalis. The sexual partner is usually treated at the same time.

HIV as the best known STD is not yet curable


Probably the best known STD is HIV. HIV can be treated, but not yet cured. An infection exists for life. 

MiSANTO currently offers the following home testing kits for sexually transmitted diseases:

  • Human papillomaviruses (HPV)
  • Combination test Mycoplasma & Trichomonas vaginalis
  • Combination tests Chlamydia & Gonococci

It all depends on your situation. If you are unsure, chat or call one of our MiSANTO doctors beforehand. You will then discuss together which tests make the most sense for you. 

 

STD home testing kits mostly on a self-pay basis.


If you order your STD Home-Testing Kit below via "Order now", you will usually have to pay for it yourself. Of course, you can try to submit the receipt to your supplementary insurance. 

 

In the case of symptomatic persons, the health insurance can also cover the costs


If you have already developed symptoms, we recommend that you first chat or call with a MiSANTO doctor. If the doctor sees the need for an STD test and prescribes one, the costs are usually covered by the health insurance. Please note, however, that your respective deductible rate still plays a role.

If you order as a self-payer, you will receive an invoice by email, which you can then pay by bank transfer. Depending on the STD home-testing kit, it will cost you between CHF 96.00 and CHF 235.00. We know that's a lot of money - but certainly well invested, namely in your health!
