Symptoms of STIs in men and what to do

According to Healthline - STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections) are infections that are transmitted through sexual contact with an infected partner. In men, the symptoms of STIs can vary depending on the type of infection. Some of the common symptoms of STIs in men include:

Painful urination: Men with STIs may experience a burning sensation while urinating.

Discharge from the penis: Thick, yellow, or greenish discharge from the penis is a common symptom of STIs.

Pain or discomfort during sex: Men with STIs may experience pain or discomfort during sexual intercourse.

Sores, bumps or blisters on the penis: STIs such as herpes or syphilis can cause sores, bumps or blisters on the penis.

Itching, burning or redness around the genital area: STIs such as pubic lice or scabies can cause itching, burning or redness around the genital area.

Swollen lymph nodes: In some cases, STIs can cause swollen lymph nodes in the groin area.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical attention. STIs can be easily treated with antibiotics or antiviral medications, but it is important to get tested and diagnosed early. Untreated STIs can lead to serious health complications, such as infertility, chronic pelvic pain, and even some types of cancer. You can talk to your healthcare provider about getting tested for STIs and discuss the best treatment options for your specific case.
