Sexually transmitted diseases Diagnosis and treatment

The most common sexually transmitted diseases in Switzerland today include herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis and HIV. The number of new infections (except for HIV) has risen sharply in recent years. One of the main reasons for this increase is probably the more careless approach to safer sex rules due to today's treatment options for HIV.


In addition to a clinical examination based on the symptoms, a laboratory test is crucial to precisely determine the cause of the infection. It is the basis for determining the antibiotic/antiviral treatment.


The appropriate treatment, usually antibiotic or antiviral, depends on the laboratory findings. For further information see Syphilisserology and Venereology/Molecular Biology.
