Sexually Transmitted Infections of STIs are passed on during sexual activity or contact with an infected person. This included full sex, oral sex and the use of sex toys. Although a number of STIs carry no obvious symptoms and many people first find out they are carrying an infection after a Greenwich Home STI kits company, like https://www.greenwichsexualhealth.org/home_sti_kits/ returns the results of their home test, there are a couple of  symptoms to keep an eye out for.

  • Painful urination – if it hurts when you urinate it can be a sign of a urine infection as well as being a sign of chlamydia and gonorrhoea. In the event of any of these conditions it is important to get your urine checked by your GP who can then prescribe the necessary medication.

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge – everyone experiences some vaginal discharge and it can be a sign of a thrush infection, but abnormal vaginal discharge can also be a sign of HPV and Chlamydia. HPV can go on to cause changes in your cervical cells which at some point in the future could become cancerous. It is for this reason that it is important that you keep up to date with your cervical screening appointments.
