No med kills all: There are at least a dozen diseases than be transmitted sexually including those best known as STD's.Some can be cured with meds and some not.Those that can be cured are not all cured by a single med.If you were treated with the right med for your STD, it may linger long enough to prevent re-infection by same germ for a few days, but unprotected exposure leaves you vulnerable to all the others.
