Signs You May Have an STD

STDs often have no symptoms, so it is impossible to know if you are infected unless you are tested. But some do have symptoms, which can come and go. Symptoms may go away on their own, but the infection may still be present, and may cause serious harm to your body. The infection may be passed on to your sex partner(s) and transmitted to your baby during pregnancy/delivery.
