In brief: Depends

It depends on which std one has.
Some stds like gonorrhea are caused by bacteria and treated with antibiotics. Others like herpes and HIV are caused by viruses and treated with anti-viral therapy. The treatment will be specific to the disease. If you think you have an std, you need to see your doc to be tested and treated right away. All one's partners should be treated, too.
