STD Symptoms in Women



Vaginal Discharge

Most women normally get vaginal discharge. If there is a change in the colour, smell or amount of discharge this may indicate an infection.

Yeast infection usually causes a thick white discharge with itching.

Gardnerella infection usually causes a grey discharge with some itching.

Gonorrhea and Chlamydia usually causes a yellow green discharge with pain when passing urine.

Trichomonas usually causes a green discharge that is very bad smelling.

Remember that not everyone infected with an STD will develop symptoms. The only way to know for sure is to get tested.

It is recommended that women get regular tests for Chlamydia. This is because up to 80% of women infected with Chlamydia do not know they have it. And it can lead to complications like infertility or ectopic pregnancies.




Pain during urination

It is very common for women to get bladder infections (also known as UTIs) and this causes pain during urination.

However, STDs like Gonorrhea, Chlamydia and Herpes can also cause pain during urination.

If you have been treated for a UTI but are not better or have a UTI that keeps coming back, come see us for advice. You may have an STD.




Pain during sex

Pain during sex can be caused by inflammation of the vagina or cervix. This is usually caused by an infection that could be an STD.

Pain during sex is not normal and you should see us for further advice and checks.




Abnormal vaginal bleeding

Bleeding from your vagina that is not your period is not normal. Bleeding after sex is a particularly worrying symptom.

Don’t ignore this. See us for more advice and checks.




Itching in the genital area

There are many possible causes of itching in the genital area. It can be an allergy or skin problem.

However, certain STDs like pubic lice can also cause severe itching in the genital region.

If you have an itch that does not go away, see us for more advice and checks.




Genital sores

Genital sores (also known as ulcers) are like craters on the skin.

They can be painful or painless. They are often caused by STDs such as Syphilis and Herpes.

Often, these sores disappear even without treatment. However, this does not mean that you are cured.

It is best to come see us when you still have the sores. It is easier to get a diagnosis then.




Lumps and bumps on the genitals or around the anus

The commonest STD to causes abnormal skin growth in the ano-genital region is Human papillomavirus (HPV).

However, other STDs like Molluscum can also cause lumps on the skin.

If you notice any abnormal growths on your skin, don’t ignore it. Come see us for more advice and checks.



 

STD Symptoms in Men

 

Discharge from the penis

Discharge from the penis is always abnormal. It may be a lot and obvious. Or it may be just a little and only noticed as a stain on your underwear in the morning.

Gonorrhea and Chlamydia usually causes a yellow green discharge with pain when passing urine.

Remember that not everyone infected with an STD will develop symptoms. The only way to know for sure is to get tested.

If you have a discharge from the penis, come visit our doctors to find out what kind of tests or treatments you need.



Pain during urination

Pain during urination for men is never normal. Although it may be caused by bladder infection or stones in the bladder, these are less common.

Much more commonly, pain when passing urine is a sign of an STD infection in men.

If you have a pain while passing urine, come visit our doctors to find out what kind of tests or treatments you need.
