STD Symptoms in Women

STDs are a difficult group of infections to categorize. Some are viral, some bacterial; some are chronic, while others are only temporary; some are potentially life-threatening, while others are more innocuous by comparison. Additionally, STD symptoms tend to occur differently in women than they do in men. Indeed, while women are less likely to experience outward symptoms of common STDs, they are more likely to develop health problems as a result of a sexually transmitted infection. That’s why every sexually active woman should be aware of the following common STD signs and symptoms:

  • Pain/stinging during urination
  • Pain/stinging during intercourse
  • Vaginal itching
  • Unusual vaginal discharge
  • Unusual vaginal odor
  • Genital bumps

As STDs develop over time, women may also experience some of these symptoms as well:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Rashes on the hands, feet, and genital region
  • Irregular menstrual cycles
  • Pelvic/lower back pain

Common STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea can cause infertility in women who don’t receive treatment. Furthermore, STDs can lead to a number of other health issues for women, including severe joint pain, blindness, paralysis, and death. If you’ve experienced any of the above symptoms –– or if you haven’t been tested recently –– make sure to visit a testing facility near you ASAP.
