Can I talk to a doctor on Maple about my sexually transmitted infections?

Yes. In most cases, a Maple doctor can diagnose sexually transmitted infections online by asking about your symptoms and condition. Once you describe your symptoms to the doctor, they will be able to order tests, diagnose, prescribe appropriate medication, and recommend an appropriate course of action. 

If the doctor suspects you have a more serious problem, they may suggest you go to a clinic for a thorough physical examination.

Can I get a prescription on Maple?

Yes, our physicians can prescribe medications online during your consultation. Once you accept a prescription, you’ll have the option to pick it up from any pharmacy or we’ll deliver it right to your door at no additional cost.

What is a sexually transmitted infection?

Sexually transmitted infections are conditions which spread through either sexual genital, oral or rectal contact, or non-sexual contact such as the sharing of needles. Examples of sexually transmitted infections include chlamydia, herpes, genital warts, HIV, and many others.

What are the symptoms of sexually transmitted infections?

Because there are many types of sexually transmitted infections, there are many possible symptoms. Some symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection include: 

  • Unusual discharge from the genitalia
  • Bumps, sores or redness on or near the genital region 
  • Experiencing pain during intercourse
  • Vaginal bleeding
  • Fever
How can I treat sexually transmitted infections?

You can treat some sexually transmitted infections, such as those caused by bacteria, at home by taking medications prescribed by a doctor (such as antibiotics). Other STIs, such as HIV or Herpes cannot be completely cured but can be managed. In this case, a doctor may prescribe antiviral drugs to help alleviate symptoms.
