Depends on the STD: You could have an STD and be asymptomatic — without any signs or symptoms. In fact, this happens with a lot of STDs. Even though you have no symptoms, you're still at risk of passing the infection along to your sex partners. That's why it's important to use protection, such as a condom, during sex. And visit your doctor on a regular basis for STD screening. ...Read more
I have signs of an STD and need to be tested and treated. But i can't find anywhere to go to do it till Monday what should i do?
Sooner is better!: It varies from one STD to the next and with severity of symptoms. If only discharge, without pain, it's probably safe to wait til Monday. But even here there is risk of serious complications in the next 1-2 days. For sure don't wait if you are in pain or fever, or have open sores that suggest herpes, for which effective treatment has to start early. If necessary, find an urgent care clinic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have a slit pain in my groan area. Could that be signs of an STD or i started a hard work out program last week could it be from working out?
Could be either: It is more likely to be due to a hard workout. The answer lies in what the associated symptoms are. Most std's would present with associated urinary symptoms or a rash.

I am 17 years old and i had sex with my partner and i started to bleed during it. I don't have any signs of an std, i don't know what it could be.
Can be common: Bleeding during sex, especially in someone who is young, is extremely common. The key is to not do anything that causes pain or let anyone talk you into doing anything you aren't ready to do. I would also advise being careful to think about prevention of stds and pregnancy, assuming you are not ready for that. If the bleeding is significant or continues, by all means see a physician. Good luck! ...Read more
