Common sexually transmitted infections (sexually transmitted diseases) include Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, Syphilis, and HSV Types 1 & 2 (Herpes)

Transmission is usually through physical contact such as oral or sexual intercourse. Symptoms include painful and/or frequent urination, discharge from the genitals, and itching near the genital regions. However, recent research shows that up to 70% of infections have no symptoms and because of this, regular screening for high risk patients are the current recommendation

When experiencing described symptoms, there’s almost always an infection present. Our body tries to wash out the infection thus frequency and other discomforts are commonly encountered

One should regard these symptoms as a warning sign from the body as no STD/STI will go away without complications. Symptoms might decrease over time, but this doesn’t mean that there will be a natural overcoming. Once symptoms are evoked, proper diagnosis and treatment are mandatory
