What are sexually transmitted infections (STIs)?

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are infections you can get by having sex with someone who has an infection. These infections are usually passed from person to person through vaginal intercourse, anal sex, oral sex, or skin-to-skin contact. STIs can be caused by viruses or bacteria. STIs caused by viruses include Hepatitis B, Herpes, HIV, and the human papilloma virus (HPV).  STIs caused by bacteria including chlamydia, gonorrhoea, and syphilis.

How do you know if my partner has an STI?

Just ask. Although it may be uncomfortable, we recommend you talk to your partner before having any sexual contact. Ask if he or she is at risk for having an STI or has had an STI in the past. Some of the risk factors for an STI are having sex with several partners, sharing needles, using injected drugs and having had an STI in the past. You should also tell your partner if you have, or previously had an STI, and it is better to be honest about it. To be safe, protect yourself no matter what the person says.

What are the symptoms of STIs?

Common symptoms of STIs include:

-Itching around the vagina and/or discharge from the vagina for women.
-Discharge from the penis for men.
-Pain during sex or when urinating.
-Pain in the pelvic area.
-Sore throats in people who have oral sex.
-Pain around the anus, for those who have anal sex.
-Chancre sores (painful sores) in genital, anal and oral regions.
-Scaly rash on palms and soles
-Dark urine, loose stools, yellow skin and eyes
-Blisters that turn to scabs in the genital area
-Swollen glands, fevers
-Soft fleshed coloured warts around genital area.

If you suspect that you or your partner may have an STI, you should not have sex, including oral sex without a condom until you have had a check-up. You can have an STI without knowing it and infect your partner during sex. You can see your GP, but they'll probably refer you to a sexual health clinic if they think you may have an STI. Many STIs have no symptoms at all, and the only way to know for sure is to get tested.
