Sexually transmitted infections are diseases that can be transmitted by unprotected sex, with most instances occurring in young people.
Many infections are symptomless so you may not know you are infected until tested.
Almost all STIs can be present without symptoms including: chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, warts, hepatitis B and HIV. If left untreated they can have harmful effects on your body. Chlamydia and gonorrhea can be accompanied by symptoms of painful urination or discharge. However, much like syphilis and HIV they are initially symptomless in the early stages. Even if everything appears normal you can still be carrying a silent STI.
Always use a condom when having sex, especially if your partner is a stranger. Condoms reduce the risk of contracting STIs. Get tested regularly, this is the only way you can be sure you are free from infection.
