In brief: No
Acquiring an std is always a very stressful and anxiety-provoking situation.
However, do not panic. All stds have treatments and prompt evaluation by your doctor is always the first step. He or she can often calm your fears, answer any questions, and get you headed in the right direction in regards to what the next step is. Understanding how to protect yourself in the future is paramount.

In brief: No
Definitely not. Many stds can be treated and gotten rid of, like gonorrhea, chlamydia or syphilis.
Even permanent ones like hpv, HSV or HIV can be dealt with, if treated appropriately. Get tested, get treated and be careful!
