Is it true that some STIs have no symptoms?
Yes. Often STIs do not present any symptoms such as itching, soreness when urinating or during sex, flu-like symptoms, or unusual discharge. Symptoms, if they do appear, can vary between different people and different STIs. Some common STI infections such as Chlamydia can present no symptoms at all. Around 90% of men and 70% of women who are infected with Chlamydia will never show any symptoms.
Because of this, it is important that you test regularly for STIs in Alijó. Regular testing at your local Better2Know clinic in Alijó will provide you with the health information you need to keep yourself, and your sexual partners safe from symptomless STIs.
STIs such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV, Syphilis, Herpes, Hepatitis A, B and C, Mycoplasma, and Trichomonas are just a few common STIs that can present with no symptoms in the early stages of infection. No matter where you are, even in Alijó, the risk of catching one of these infections is high. Regular testing is the only way to protect your sexual health.
How often should I get tested for an STI?
