What are the signs of an STD/STI?
A: Many STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) can cause “silent symptoms,” allowing them to go unnoticed for long periods. Therefore, routine screenings are vital in finding and treating these infections early. Depending on the STD, different symptoms may present. However, common STD symptoms, according to the Cleveland Clinic, are:
- Bumps, sores, or warts in the genital region, mouth, or anus.
- Swelling, redness, or itching near the genital region.
- Penile discharge.
- Foul smelling, different colored, or unusual amounts of vaginal discharge which may also cause irritation.
- Vaginal bleeding is not associated with your period.
- Painful sex.
