Symptoms

The Risks

Whats Next?

  • Chlamydia trachomatis (also called Chlamydia) is one of the most common STI’s in the UK. It can often have no symptoms and therefore, go undetected. When it does cause symptoms, it can cause unusual discharge, painful urination, or other serious health risks.

 

  • Neisseria gonorrhoeae (also called Gonorrhoea) is second most common STI in the UK, which has an estimated global annual incidence of 86.9 million adults. It can also show no symptoms, therefore going undetected. When it does cause symptoms, it can cause unusual (yellow-green) discharge, painful urination, or bleeding between periods for women.

 

  • Mycoplasma genitalium is different from other STI’s, in that however, if this natural level overgrows it can cause further infection and discomfort that needs to be treated (especially in those who are frequently sexually experienced), including monogamous couples. It is the latest STI “superbug” and can often coincide with Chlamydia infections, showing pelvic, genital or bladder symptoms.

 

  • Trichomonas vaginalis is a very common STI caused by a tiny parasite instead of a bacterium. Symptoms can take up to 1 month to show after infection, including abnormal vaginal discharge, soreness/itchiness around genitalia, pain/discomfort while passing urine/ejactulation.

 

  • Ureaplasma urealyticum are organisms commonly found in 70% of the urogenital tracts of men and women; however, if this natural level overgrows it can cause further infection and discomfort that needs to be treated (especially in those who are frequently sexually experienced), including monogamous couples. It can lead to complications during pregnancy and with the newborn.

 

  • Mycoplasma hominis are organisms that can be commonly found in the urogenital tracts of men and women; however, if this natural level overgrows it can cause further infection and discomfort that needs to be treated (especially in those who are frequently sexually experienced), including monogamous couples. It can lead to complications during pregnancy and with the newborn.

DID YOU KNOW?

Most people experience NO symptoms, the only way to be sure is to get tested regularly.

STIs are normally transmitted due to unprotected sex. Practicing safer sex can drastically reduce your risk; however, it isn’t foolproof protection!

They can be transmitted by vaginal, anal, or oral sex, through sharing sex toys that have not been washed, or by infected semen or vaginal fluid getting into your eye. Infected mothers can also pass onto her unborn baby.

STI’s affects around 50% of sexually active individuals. Some organisms are present in (almost) everyone’s urinary tract in small quantities. However, in higher quantities, it can cause an infection which can be transmitted sexually.

In immune-compromised individuals, rarer symptoms can present, such as joint pain and respiratory problems.

You should get tested if:

  • Pain during urination
  • Unusual discharge from vagina, penis, or rectum
  • Stomach pains, bleeding after sex
  • Bleeding in between periods for women
  • Painful and swollen testicles for men
  • Pain/itchiness in the genital region

If you have symptoms you should get a test straight away. If your symptoms are severe, you should visit a health care provider to avoid complications.

DID YOU KNOW?

Approx. 5/10 men and 7/10 women infected with Chlamydia will not present with any symptoms.

Around 1 in 10 men and 50% of women infected with Gonorrhoea do not show any symptoms.

They can easily be spread to partners so it’s important to get tested regularly.

  • If you have had unprotected sex with someone and are unsure if they are infected.
  • If you have multiple sex partners.
  • If your partner has multiple sex partners.
  • If your partner has tested positive.
  • If you have changed sexual partners.

DID YOU KNOW?

If not treated early, sexually transmitted infections can become serious.

In women:

Untreated STI’s can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy, and fertility issues.

In men:

It is possible for STI’s to cause urethritis (inflammation in the urethra) or epididymitis (infection to the testicles causing them to become swollen and painful). In addition the infection can spread to the prostate gland which can lead to infertility.

Untreated Gonorrhea  and Trichomonas infections can also increase the risk of catching or transmitting HIV.

DID YOU KNOW

positive test indicates you have an active infection that requires treatment with antibiotics.

negative test means that there is no evidence of infection at the time of the test. If you are at an increased risk, it is important that you have screening tests performed regularly to check for possible infection, especially since re-infection is common, particularly among younger ages. If you are infected, your sexual partner should be tested and treated as well.

It is also important that your current sexual partner and recent sexual partners also get treated.
