Dr. Dan fisher said except hepatitis b & c all std's are curable. Is it true? I've heard syphillis, gonorrhea, HIV can't be cured. They are only treatable.

Most, not yet HIV: Syphilis is curable with antibiotics if diagnosed early, i.e. Primary or 2ndary. Tertiary syphilis with neurologic deficits can never be cured, only stabilized & germs eliminated.

Hiv can be stabilized by meds, not cured. ...Read more

If u have cured the STD u had and it was there for about 3months can be a way it can cause u not to have children, like could u tell there's a block?

No guarantee: An x-ray procedure showing tubes are open is no guarantee they will work if they are. Many who have STD's treated will not have tube damage, but any damage could lead to poor function without full blockage. You may want to wait until you have trouble conceiving to do all the testing. There are ways to bypass tubes through IVF, to have kids. ...Read more

If you had symptoms of a STI or STD and it was confirmed that you had it. And it was cured Can you get the symptoms again? If you thought you had it

Sure: Did partner get treated also? If not, then will likely get with each next sex. Both need treated and checked for resolution. Also, these are bacterial infections, and they do not produce an immunity to future (re-) infection, like chicken pox would.

Actually, they do!: The immune system clears up most STDs. Without treatment, gonorrhea and chlamydia usually are self cured by the immune system after a few weeks or months, but sometimes only after serious complications have occurred. Syphilis usually persists, but not always. HPV and genital warts are cleared by the immune system as well. Herpes is partly controlled by immunity, but not cured. ...Read more

Most: Most of the time, it will, though if there are any doubts, he/she may want to be retested 7 days after being treated to make sure the infection is definitely gone.
