Hopefully you will never have to recover from a sexually transmitted disease, but if you happen to have the unfortunate opportunity to fall prey to one, there are some things you can do to recover and possibly ensure that something like this will never happen again.

The first thing is to see your doctor and talk to him/her about your health and things you can do to prevent unwanted diseases. After you have had a chat with your physician do some much needed research. The Center for Disease Control releases statistics and health tips frequently to the public so they will have the knowledge they need about having good health.

The link is: http://www.cdc.gov/STD/.

The National Institute of Health is also a good resource for research as well. http://www.nih.gov/

Also, it might be helpful to subscribe to some of the most popular health sites on the web. This way you can keep up-to-date on the latest news in the healthcare and drug industry. In addition, you can join a community and talk to other people about issues and concerns you may have. Some of the most popular health sites are as follows:

Web MD - http://www.webmd.com/
Health.com - http://www.health.com/health
Discovery Health - http://health.discovery.com/

For more specialized sites try the following:

Men’s Health - http://www.menshealth.com/
Women’s Health - http://www.womenshealthmag.com/

Whichever site you choose, there is nothing more important than taking care of your health. It even becomes more important once you have fallen victim to an STD or any other sickness. Do your research and keep up-to-date with all the breakthroughs happening in the area of sexually transmitted diseases.

Thanks for all the info and links. I will save for files. In fact, I'm living with HIV positive for 2 years. Honestly, I was upset and think my sex life was over.
Later I found PositivemateCOM. This site was created to help people find useful, up-to-date information about prevention and cure for herpes, HPV, HIV, find safe dating with STDs. I know there are currently 33 million people living with HIV in the world. Having STDs is not the end of the world.
