Sexually Transmitted Infections
How do I know if I have an STI?
Different STIs have different symptoms, but they are also often asymptomatic, meaning that the infection is present without any symptoms. This is why it is important to get regularly tested. Symptoms can include: having unusual disharge from penis, vagina, or anus, pain while urinating, itchy genitals, or rashes, lumps, warts, or sores on or around the genitals. If you experience any of these symptoms or are worried you might have an STI, arrange to get tested as soon as possible.
