Do I have an STD? Common STD Symptoms
Some STDs have no physical signs or symptoms. You can pass the infection on to your sex partners without knowing it. So as you know, protection is essential for sex.
Please see your doctor for STD screening regularly so that you can detect and treat an infection before it can spread. Some of the more commen STD symptoms include:
- Solid discharge from the vagina (for women) or liquid dischare from the urethra (for men)
- Pain during sex
- Painful urination
- Burning sensation during urination
- Open sores or bumps on the genitals or in the oral or rectal area
- Abnormal or odd-smelling genital discharge
- A sore, swollen groin
- Unusual vaginal bleeding
- Fever accompanied with any of the above symptoms
Common Types of STD Tests
- Gonorrhea: vaginal swab or sample urine
- Chlamydia: vaginal swab or drop of urine
- Genital herpes (with symptoms): Swab of the affected area and blood test
- Genital herpes (no symptoms): Blood test (ask for a type-specific IgG test, not an IgM test)
- HIV: Blood test or finger prick
- Trichomoniasis (Trich): Swab of the infected area, a visual exam or a sample of discharge
- Syphilis: Blood test or sample is taken from a sore
- HPV (cervical cancer): A sample is taken from the cervix as with a Pap test.
- HPV (genital warts): Visual exam
Different sexually transmitted disease infections require different approaches, so it’s crucial to understand your options.
Antibiotics. Bacterial or parasitic infections including gonorrhea, syphilis, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis are treated with antibiotics. Remember, completing your prescription is essential for successful treatment. And don’t forget, no sexual activity until after your treatment is completed and any sores have healed.
Antivirals. If you have herpes or HIV, antiviral drugs can manage the infection, reducing the severity of symptoms and decreasing the risk of transmission. Daily suppressive therapy with antiviral medication can help minimize herpes recurrences, while HIV treatment can effectively control the virus.
Start treatment early, follow your doctor’s instructions, and take charge of your health.
What Should I Do If I Think I Have an STD?
Start care immediately, take the full course of medicine, and follow the advice of your doctor.
- Do not breastfeed an infant or use breast milk to feed a child.
- Any sexual activity should be with a single uninfected partner. And find out if they have any other partners.
- Delay having sex for as long as you can. The younger you are, the more likely you are to get an STD when you start having sex.
- Use a condom any time you have sex. They can’t fully prevent an STD, but they decrease the chances.
- Notify and allow all prospective sexual partners to undergo medical assessments.
- Stop sexual intercourse while on STD treatment.
