What are the signs and symptoms of Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?

Answer: 

Many people with STIs never get any symptoms, or symptoms can develop later on, so it is worth getting tested frequently if you think you have put yourself at risk.

When symptoms do appear, they are typically.

  • Discharge from penis or vagina
  • Pain when peeing itchiness
  • Soreness in genital area
  • Swelling of genital area
  • Blisters or warts around genitals
  • Bleeding between periods
  • Bleeding after sex
  • Pain when having sex
