How do you know if you've got an STI?
Because STIs are quite varied infections the symptoms of them can be hard to spot. The list below shows some of the general symptoms:
- Rashes/itchiness on or around the genitals
- Lumps, blisters or sores on or around the genitals
- Unusual discharge from the penis or vagina
- Pain in the genital area or groin
- Pain in the penis or vagina when having sexual intercourse
- Pain or a burning sensation when passing urine
It is possible to have an STI without even knowing as sometimes the symptoms are so small, especially in the early stages. It is important to get yourself checked out if you feel you are at risk. For this reason it is important for women to have regular smear tests (a regular test to check for cervical cancer) as these tests often show up signs of Sexually Transmitted infections.
