Don't believe the myth! Truth is, MANY STDs are asymptomatic, which means they are WITHOUT signs or symptoms. Serious damage can occur to a woman's reproductive organs due to these silent infections. And a man can keep spreading a disease that may be easily cured, because he has no symptoms! The ONLY way to know for sure if one is infected or not is to be tested. If you suspect that you or your partner may have an STD, go to your doctor or health clinic for testing. Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HPV, Herpes and BV or bacterial vaginosis, among others can often manifest with NO discernible symptoms, especially for women. There's only one foolproof way to AVOID contracting a sexually transmitted infection: not having sex. But since abstinence is not a choice for all of us, be SURE to use a condom with new partners until you have both been tested and have decided to be in a mutually monogamous relationship with one another.More »
