Whether you’re in a monogamous relationship or have had a number of partners, it’s important to get tested for STDs regularly.
Many STDs don’t have noticeable symptoms, so can exist without you knowing. They can cause harm to your body and reproductive organs, though, so you’ll want to detect them as early as possible.
Here are some common STD symptoms according to Mayo Clinic:
- Clear, white, greenish, or yellowish vaginal discharge
- Discharge from the penis
- Strong vaginal odor
- Vaginal itching or irritation
- Itching or irritation inside the penis
- Pain during sexual intercourse
- Painful urination
If you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, you should get tested for STDs right away.
