Symptoms of Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Symptoms of Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Introduction

Symptoms of STDs vary depending on the type of STD and the individual case. Some STDs have no symptoms early in the disease. However, serious permanent damage to the reproductive tissues, infertility, and other complications can occur even in the absence of symptoms.

Symptoms often affect the genitals and reproductive organs and can include public itching, burning with urination, pubic rashes, blisters and lesions on the genitals, and infertility. Symptoms specific to women can include pelvic pain, vaginal discharge with a foul odor, pain with sexual intercourse, and fever. Symptoms specific to men can include testicular pain and a thick discharge from the penis.

Some STDs, such as HIV/AIDS and syphilis, can cause symptoms in other body systems outside the reproductive system and genitals. Symptoms can include dementia, weight loss, flu-like symptoms, fever, headache, swollen lymph glands, fatigue, shortness of breath, paralysis, aortic aneurysm, frequent opportunistic infections, and death....more about Sexually Transmitted Diseases »

Article Excerpts About Symptoms of Sexually Transmitted Diseases:

Most of the time, STDs cause no symptoms, particularly in women. When and if symptoms develop, they may be confused with those of other diseases not transmitted through sexual contact. Even when an STD causes no symptoms, however, a person who is infected may be able to pass the disease on to a sex partner. That is why many doctors recommend periodic testing or screening for people who have more than one sex partner. (Source: excerpt from Sexually Transmitted Diseases, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID)
