Common STD & STI Symptoms
One of the most common side effects of an STD is no symptoms at all. Other common symptoms can include:
Clear, white, greenish, or yellowish discharge
Strong vaginal odor
Itching or irritation inside the penis or vagina
Pain during sexual intercourse
If you've had unprotected sex, or a change of partners, it's time to get tested. Oral, anal, or vaginal sex always carries the risks of STDs. If you need more information on the types of STDs or avoiding sexually transmitted diseases or infections, contact us today.
When should I get tested?
You need to get tested if:
you've recently had unprotected sex
you've had a change in partners
you have experienced itching or burning in your pelvic area
you have scheduled an abortion
You may need to get tested even if you have no symptoms or consistently use a condom or barrier method. Getting rested prior to an abortion procedure can reduce your risk of infection or PID (pelvic inflammatory disease).
