Common STD symptoms to be aware of

Symptoms of STDs can vary depending on the specific illness. Common symptoms can include:

  • A burning or painful sensation while urinating
  • Flu-like symptoms, such as fever, fatigue, swollen lymph nodes or body aches 
  • Itching, swelling or pain in the vagina, penis or anus
  • Rashes, bumps or sores in the genital or buttock area
  • Unusual discharge from the genitals

While the above symptoms can impact anyone, specific symptoms for men and women can differ. STD symptoms for women can include pain during sex, pelvic pain, abnormal colored discharge or spotting from the vagina. It is important to note that most STDs can produce no symptoms in women, so it is important to get checked if you think you have been exposed or have had unprotected intercourse. STD symptoms for men include pain with urination, discharge from the penis, or tender and swollen testicles and lymph nodes in the groin.

Many of these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses as well. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to get an STD screening to determine the best treatment for you.
