Sexually-transmitted diseases can infect everyone, including females. These infections are very harmful and dangerous, and they can trigger different signs and symptoms once they are contracted.

Even though many people who get STDs do not show visible symptoms at all, it is still important to become familiar with what these signs and symptoms are, so as to know if it is time to get an STD test.

Common symptoms

Here are the most common symptoms of STDs in women:

- pelvic pains

- unusual discharge from the vagina

- sores and/or rashes around the genital or rectal regions

- headaches- fever- flu-like symptoms

- exhaustion for no reason- pain during sexual intercourse

These symptoms should be taken seriously once they appear. If you are a female and you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is time to get an STD test so as to determine what STD is present and receive the appropriate treatment for it.
