For Teens: STD Symptoms in Women

In women, warning signs of STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) can be hard to notice. That's because the sex organs outside the body (the genitals) aren't easy to see. STDs also often affect the organs inside the body that let you get pregnant. Damage to these organs can sometimes cause sterility-meaning you won't be able to have kids! So learn about your body. Find out what's normal for you. And be sure to have any changes or symptoms checked out.

STD Symptoms

For women, symptoms of an STD can be inside or outside the body (or both). Common symptoms may include:

  • Discharge (fluid) from the vagina or rectum. Some vaginal discharge is normal. But discharge caused by STDs may be heavy and have a strong odor.

  • Burning or pain during urination.

  • Sores or blisters in or around the mouth, vagina, labia, or rectum.

  • Lumps or bumps on the genitals.

  • Itching on or around the genitals.

  • Pain in the lower belly or rectum.

  • Keep in mind: You may not have any symptoms. So get checked if you're at risk of STDs.
