In brief: Needs testing

Not all stis have symptoms, and not all vag/penile symptoms are due to stis.
That's why it is recommend to undergo testing if you think you are at risk for an sti. Now, there are urine tests that may check for certain infections. Others still require a blood test. Remember, prevention of infection is always the best way!
