4 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
First off, many stds are viral and thus have no antibiotic treatment options that make the infection go away.
Also, there are more and more data to show high resistant strains of chlamydia, gonorrhea and even syphilis. This is y becoming a very scary problem and sure to only get more worrisome. Be careful and protect yourself!

In brief: Very much so
First remember hepatitis, herpes, papilloma.
And HIV among others are viruses and therefore not sensitive to antibiotics at all. Bacterial stds have become increasingly resistant over time with some multiply resistant strsins.
