If you have one of the following symptoms you might have an STI:
- discharge from the urethra, vagina or anus (yellow, greenish, brownish, smelly or bloody). Most discharge from the vagina is normal. If the discharge smells strongly or changes colour, it can be a symptom of an STI;
- skin changes: blisters, warts, sores or a rash on/in/around the penis, vagina, anus or mouth/throat;
- pain and/or a burning sensation when going to the toilet;
- itching of the penis, vagina, anus or pubic hair;
- bleeding or abdominal pain when having sexual intercourse (penetration);
- pain in one or both testicles (man);
- blood in your faeces;
- difficulties getting pregnant (infertility).
They are not transmitted sexually (no STIs). They are called vaginal infections.
