While many STDs don’t cause noticeable symptoms, even a single sexual encounter can result in an STD, so it’s always a good idea to get tested if you’re sexually active. However, symptoms sometimes do occur, so if you notice any of the following, you should seek STD testing immediately:
- Bleeding between menstrual periods or an off-color or odorous discharge from your vagina (if you’re female)
- Testicular pain or swelling (if you’re male)
- Burning, itching, or discomfort in or around your genitals
- Rectal pain or discharge
- Sores on your genitals
- Painful sex
- A burning sensation while urinating
Can STDs Be Treated?
Many STDs can be treated with common antibiotics. Others can be managed with antiviral drugs and other medications. If you are diagnosed with an STD, you will be given further instructions on the proper way to treat it.
