What do STIs Look Like?

Often people infected with STIs have no symptoms and may not realize they are infected. The following symptoms are common to STIs:

  • burning, itching or pain when urinating (peeing)

  • unusual discharge from penis or vagina

  • genital pain and/or pain during sex

  • sores, bumps or rash on genitals or around anal area

Having one of these symptoms does not always mean you have an STI, but the only way to be sure is to get tested. Testing for STIs can be done through your family doctor or at one of the Health Unit's Sexual Health Clinics.
