I have an STD but I am embarrassed and don't want to tell anyone. Will it just go away?

In brief: Maybe but dangerous!

Maybe, but that is an awfully scary way to deal with a very dangerous situation.
Some stds can go away without treatment, such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Others do not, such as hpv, herpes, hiv, etc... But gonorrhea and chlamydia can also cause serious infections that can kill you or cause infertility. Suck it up, be an adult and get tested!

In brief: STD

Stds are important infections and should be evaluated by a doctor. They do not just go away.
