Viruses such as HIV, genital herpes, human papillomavirus, hepatitis, and cytomegalovirus cause STDs/STIs that cannot be cured. People with an STD/STI caused by a virus will be infected for life and will always be at risk of infecting their sexual partners, although for many viruses treatment significantly reduces this risk. Treatments are available to cure STDs/STIs caused by bacteria, yeast, or parasites.
