There’s no standard cost for treating STIs. That’s because the cost varies depending on the type of treatment and the length of the treatment process.

Treating STIs as quickly as possible is important for your health
In the real world, cost is always an issue which is completely understandable. Most treatments will cost something, but make sure you ask your doctor or local pharmacy about options.
STI treatment costs vary
The cost of antibiotics for treating an STI like Chlamydia (the most common STI in young people) generally ranges from $10-$20. But, if you have a healthcare card you will usually only pay the dispensing fee, which is about $6.
Talk to your doctor or give the pharmacy a call and they’ll be able to give you advice about costs.
