Is it true that some STIs have no symptoms?
Yes. Often STIs do not present any symptoms such as itching, soreness when urinating or during sex, flu-like symptoms, or unusual discharge. Symptoms, if they do appear, can vary between different people and different STIs. Some common STI infections such as Chlamydia can present no symptoms at all. Around 90% of men and 70% of women who are infected with Chlamydia will never show any symptoms.
Because of this, it is important that you test regularly for STIs in Algeciras. Regular testing at your local Better2Know clinic in Algeciras will provide you with the health information you need to keep yourself, and your sexual partners safe from symptomless STIs.
STIs such as Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV, Syphilis, Herpes, Hepatitis A, B and C, Mycoplasma, and Trichomonas are just a few common STIs that can present with no symptoms in the early stages of infection. No matter where you are, even in Algeciras, the risk of catching one of these infections is high. Regular testing is the only way to protect your sexual health.

What is the difference between and STD and an STI?
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are ultimately the same thing. The term STI has become more commonly used, as the word infection is not as daunting as the word disease. By using the word infection in place of the word disease, people are encouraged to get tested more regularly and to not be afraid of the result.
If you develop symptoms such as itching, soreness when urinating or blisters on the genital area, these are good indicators that you have an STI. Ignoring these symptoms can increase your chances of further serious health complications.
That is why regular testing in Algeciras is imperative especially after a new sexual encounter. Better2Know’s wide range of sexual health testing in Algeciras will provide you with the information you need, whether you have an STI, STD or even nothing!
How often should I get tested for an STI?
You should get tested for an STI every time you have an encounter with a new sexual partner. It can be easy to let life in Algeciras take over and not prioritise your sexual health but protecting and maintaining your overall health as well as your sexual health will lead to a better understanding of yourself going forward.
