HOW COMMON ARE STDS / STIS?

STDs are alarmingly common and are, in fact, on the rise globally. This is concerning, given that we have both effective testing methods and treatments available. Being vigilant about STDs is essential for public health

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Many STDs are asymptomatic, meaning they don't show any symptoms. However, some common symptoms you should be aware of include:

  • Burning sensation during urination (in both male and female)
  • Discharge from the penis (for males), often appearing weeks after new sexual contact
  • Lesions around the genital area
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Fever

If you notice any of these signs, it might be an indicator that an STD is present.
