Are there any symptoms?
  • Symptoms can be different depending on where the infection is
  • Symptoms in the penis can include a burning pain when urinating, whitish discharge, irritation, or soreness around the urethra (opening of the penis)
  • Symptoms in the vagina can include a burning or pain when urinating, an unusual vaginal discharge, pain in the lower belly, unusual bleeding or spotting from the vagina, or pain or bleeding after sex
  • Symptoms in the anus can include bleeding, unusual discharge, or pain
  • If you have oral sex with someone who has the infection, you may get it in your throat. But it’s unlikely to cause any symptoms
  • Remember, there’s not always symptoms. STI testing every 6-12 months is the only way to stay healthy
