Signs that you have an STD

In today’s world, more people than ever are becoming educated about the importance of using a condom when having sex.  Unfortunately, the spread of STD’s, or sexually transmitted diseases, is still fairly common.  If you have had unprotected sex or many different partners, it’s important to know the signs that you have an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease), so you know when to see a doctor.  Your doctor can help you identify the disease, and can also help to keep it from getting worse.  Many STD’s have no cure, but others can be treated and cured through medication.  One of the many signs that you have an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) is if you feel a burning sensation when you urinate.  Some other symptoms may include strange fluids or leakage from the genitals that you do recognize or have not experienced before.  Both of these are just some of the signs that you have an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). 

Blisters or sores on the genitalia most commonly represent the potential presence of herpes.  This is a cause for alarm and should be addressed by a physician immediately.  Open sores, warts, and unexplained rashes are also signs that you have an STD (sexually transmitted disease).  Fever and chills can be part of this as well but they are often onset much later in the progression of the disease.  If you feel like you may have even potentially contracted an STD, it is imperative that you see a doctor as soon as possible.  It’s always best to confirm what you have before it spreads to others or gets worse.  While a lot of different STDs do not have any cure, many others can at least be treated with various medicines.  The importance of using condoms cannot be overstressed, as this is the best way to prevent STDs aside from abstinence.
