If You See These Signs, Then Your Partner Has An Infection

STIs(Sexually Transmitted Infection) or STDs(Sexually Transmitted Disease) occurs when a person has multiple partners and has unsafe sex with them. To reduce the chances of getting an infection it's best to use a condom to be protected. Condoms are not 100% safe but they do reduce the likelihood of getting infected.

Infections are transmitted via bodily fluids. If your partner has been unfaithful and has an STI chances are you are going to get it too. Kissing does not transmit all kinds of STI, STIs like Herpes and CMV (Cytomegalovirus) can be contacted through kissing.


These are the general symptoms of a person with STI;


Thick, bloody, cloudy vaginal or penis discharge.


Painful urination.


Bleeding between periods.


Discharge from the penis.


Burning sensation during urination.


Anal or vaginal itching.


Foul vaginal odour.


Fatigue.


Weight loss.


Swollen lymph nodes.


These are the major signs that show the presence of an infection. If your partner displays any of these then you should go to the hospital immediately to check yourself. Although some STI's are Asymptomatic (show no signs) it's advisable to check yourself every 3 months if you have an active sex life.
