Do I have an STI?
The most common symptoms of STIs include:
- unusual discharge from the vagina, penis or anus
- pain when peeing or urinating
- lumps or skin growths around the genitals or anus
- a rash
- unusual vaginal bleeding
- itchy genitals or anus
- blisters and sores around the genitals or anus
- painful sex
- pain in testicles
- pain in the lower abdomen
If you have any of these symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have an STI. The symptom may be caused by something else.
Keep in mind that you can have an STI without showing any symptoms. Therefore, the fact that you and your partner are feeling fine doesn’t mean you don’t have an STI. The only way to know for sure is to get tested.
