Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Having unprotected sex (without a condom) with a partner means that you run a risk of picking up an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection).

STIs include:

STIs are passed on between partners when they have sex. You may be unaware that the person you have sex with has an STI as there are often no signs that you can see. This also means that you can get an STI without even knowing it as no-one is immune.

Warning Signs to Look Out For:

  • Rashes
  • Sores
  • An unusual discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Itchiness
  • Blisters
  • Pain in the genital area
  • A burning sensation when you pass urine (pee) or have sex; and urinating (peeing) more than usual.
