Seek medical attention: Answer: i hate to break it to you, but there's no way for you to know if you have a sexually transmitted disease without going to your doctor and getting tested. Although with certain stds the symptoms are so recognizable that they can be diagnosed by eye, most std symptoms are so non-specific that it's impossible to diagnose what sexually transmitted disease is causing them.
