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 Valencia. Regular testing at your local Better2Know clinic in Valencia 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 Valencia, the risk of catching one of these infections is high. Regular testing is the only way to protect your sexual health.

Can I still have sex if I have an STI?
If you test positive, it is recommended that you stop all sexual activity until you have completed your full course of antibiotics prescribed for your infection. You might also want to have follow up tests as recommended by Better2Know or your doctor, and not have sex until these come back negative.
If you have tested positive for Herpes, HIV or HPV you should consult with your Better2Know doctor about best practice for safe sex as these viruses require different management and treatment and may need long term follow up testing. If you do have sex in this time, be sure to practice safer sex and let your partner know the risks.
STIs in Valencia are passed from person to person through bodily fluids. Although generally safe, kissing can also pass on STIs such as Herpes and HPV. With that in mind, it is always best to stop all sexual activity until you have finished your course of treatment.
