How do I know if I have an STI?

Many STIs don’t have symptoms people can see or feel. The only way to know for sure if you have HIV or an STI is to get tested regularly. Still, it is important to learn what is normal for your body or your partner’s body. Get things checked out when something changes, like a new or unusual discharge (yellow or white fluid) coming out of your penis or vagina. Things that may not be normal include:

  • Discharge from your penis or anus or vagina
  • Pain when you have sex or urinate
  • Bumps or sores around your penis, anus, vagina, or mouth
  • Pain in your testicles or lower abdomen
  • Rashes on your body
