If you are sexually active, it is important to get screened for STDs. While there are some common symptoms that may indicate an STD, many STDs are “silent” and show no symptoms.

Some common symptoms include:

  • Sores or bumps on the genitals
  • Unusual discharge
  • Fever
  • Itching or burning of genitals or rectal area
  • Pain during sex
