What are the symptoms?
STD symptoms vary from disease to disease, and some people with different infections will not even notice symptoms. Generally, symptoms include unusual vaginal/penile discharge, a burning sensation that accompanies urination, sore or ulcers, and pain during intercourse.
Can STI's be cured?
What most people are concerned with regarding STI's is whether or not they can be cured. Bacterial infections are curable, but viral STI's are not. However, treatment may be available for the symptoms of viral infections.
