In brief: Absolutely
The 'stigma' of std's can be more distressing than the actual std.
Become educated about your std. Participate in support groups & consider becoming a volunteer std counselor. Be pro-active in reducing the chances of infecting others by using condoms & getting partners tested & treated. Experiment with abstinence. Form a good relationship with an std provider & never delay management of your std.
