STI’s which are left untreated can cause irreversible damage and may affect fertility. This is why recognising the early symptoms is key. One condition caused by a sexually transmitted disease is known to cause pain in any of these three body parts.
According to the Mayo Clinic, early STI symptoms may include:
- Sores or bumps on the genitals or in the oral or rectal area
- Painful or burning urination
- Discharge from the penis
- Unusual or odorous vaginal discharge
- Unusual vaginal bleeding
- Pain during sex
- Sore, swollen lymph nodes, particularly in the groin but sometimes more widespread
- Lower abdominal pain
- Rash over the trunk, hands or feet.
Also known as pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is often caused by a gonorrhoea and/or chlamydia infection.
It often causes a dull pain in the stomach, abdomen or pelvic area.
The disease most often occurs when sexually transmitted bacteria is spread from the vagina to the uterus, fallopian tubes or ovaries.
