Sexually Transmitted Infections
Women who lead active sexual lives should get tested even if they feel fine, as many people with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) do not have any symptoms.
An STI can be passed from one person to another through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal and oral sex. It’s important to get a STI check-up if you have had unprotected sex or think you might be at risk.
Many people do not experience any symptoms when they have an STI (e.g. most women with chlamydia).
Like any other infection, STIs can affect your health. If you have any of the symptoms listed below, speak to our women’s health specialist and get tested.
- pain when you pass urine (pee)
- itching, burning or tingling around the genitals
- blisters, sores, spots or lumps around the genitals or anus
- black powder or tiny white dots in your underwear – this could be droppings or eggs from pubic lice
- yellow or green vaginal discharge
- discharge that smells
- bleeding between periods or after sex
- pain during sex
- lower abdominal pain
Untreated chlamydia can affect women’s ability to get pregnant.
Gonorrhoea can also affect fertility. Around 50% of women with gonorrhoea do not have symptoms.
HIV (Human immunodeficiency virus) infection leads to progressive failure of the human immune system.
Syphilis affects many organs and systems of the human body.
