There are many different Sexually Transmitted Infections & Diseases.  All can be treated, but some are not curable.  It is important to note that many people who get infected will have very mild signs or symptoms or may not notice any symptoms at all.  This is especially true in women.  Depending upon the individual; and type of infection, symptoms may take days, weeks, months or years to appear.  In some cases, symptoms may disappear without treatment, but this doesn’t mean the infection is gone.  If you think you may have been exposed to an infection from sexual contact, don’t hesitate to see a doctor.  Without treatment, STIs can have very serious health consequences.
