Sexually transmitted diseases have a diverse list of causes and, as such, they also have a very varied set of symptoms.

However, it is important to remember that the only person who can diagnose you with an STD is a health care professional. If you think you may have an STD, or know you are at risk of having one, it is important to go see a doctor. That's true whether you currently have STD symptoms or not.


Some common signs and symptoms of STDs, and the diseases they are most commonly associated with, are listed below.
