Symptoms of STDs

Men often do not have symptoms of STDs. Sometimes it also can take some length of time between infection and having symptoms, depending on the specific STD, such as with HIV. But even if you have no symptoms, you can still pass the infection on to another person. Talk with your health care provider about screening for STDs, especially if you have more than one sexual partner. Be seen right away if you have any symptoms. Your health care provider will examine you and might take some tests before suggesting the best treatment for you. Most tests are quick and are not painful.
