  1. Symptoms of STIs
  2. Consequences of Contracting a STI
There are a variety of symptoms that may be present from STIs. These include, but are not limited to: discharge from the genitals, abdominal or groin pain, burning or painful urination, sores, bumps or blisters in the genital region. It is important to remember that many people with STIs may not have any symptoms at all.
  1. How to Protect Yourself from STIs
  2. STI Education
Abstinence, or not having sex (oral, vaginal, anal), is the only way to truly protect yourself and your partner from STIs. "Safer Sex" is to use a barrier when having sex, such as a latex condom or dental dam, but this is not 100% effective in protecting you or your partner against STIs.
