Some STIs have symptoms. Others do not. The only way to be certain that you are protecting your sexual health is to get tested regularly. Sometimes, STIs can advance to a dangerous place without ever showing symptoms. Other STIs can have very minor symptoms that evolve if left untreated. Early detection is the best way to make sure you are healthy and happy.
When Symptoms Show
There are lots of different symptoms for STIs that can mean a lot of different things. Some STIs share symptoms, while others have really unique indicators that you’ve contracted something. Just because you are showing symptoms of an STI, it doesn’t mean that it is too late for recovery.
