Sexually transmitted infections (STI) are bacteria, viruses or parasites that are spread usually through bodily fluids such as blood or semen. How can you tell if you have an STI? Some STIs don’t have symptoms, but many do.
Depending on the infection, symptoms can appear a few days after exposure up to a few years.
If you develop symptoms listed above or if a sexual partner has tested positive for an STI, seek medical care immediately.
You should see a doctor regularly for an STI checkup after you become sexually active, and before you start having sex with a new partner.
Get the care you need now at a Norton Immediate Care Center, Norton Community Medical Associates location or Norton Prompt Care at Walgreens clinic.
