Most often, someone with an STD has no symptoms. So, unfortunately, if you are sexually active but symptom-free, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you or your partner are not infected. The need for STD testing is based on one’s age and also risk factors or risk behaviors.
Occasionally, a sexually transmitted infection will produce symptoms such as:
- Burning with urination
- Spotting or discomfort with sex
- Bumps or sores
Symptoms like these should be explored with our qualified healthcare provider.
