STIs often have no clear symptoms. You cannot always see whether you have an STI. Go to a doctor if you think you might have an STI. He/she can do a test.

Symptoms

If you have one of the following symptoms you might have an STI: 

Vaginal infections

Women can also have some of these symptoms (discharge, itching vagina, burning feeling when urinating) from two other fungal infections: candida or bacterial vaginosis

They are not transmitted sexually (no STIs). They are called vaginal infections.

Ask a health professional for advice.

STI treatment

The symptoms of an STI can disappear while you still have the STI. You still need to be treated. Untreated STIs can seriously damage your health. Most STIs can be cured or their symptoms can be treated.
