FDA and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) jointly launched the "Fraudulent
STD Products Initiative," which targets over-the-counter products bought
online or in retail stores that make unproven claims to prevent, cure, and/or
treat sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). These products have not been evaluated
by the FDA for safety and effectiveness. These illegal products may pose significant
public health risk since individuals could be inaccurately treated, leading
to delays in getting medical help and increasing the possibility of spreading
disease to a sexual partner. Consumers and health professionals should be warned
there are no over-the-counter or online drugs or dietary supplements available
to treat or prevent STDs. Appropriate diagnosis and/or treatment of STDs can
only occur under the supervision of a health care professional.
