The timing with which sexual infection symptoms can develop is in the range of a few days or weeks, although such signs may in some cases appear late, up to a few months or even years later.
Therefore, it is worth remembering that, precisely because of the possibility that such symptoms do not appear at all, there is always a minimal chance of infection, if the sexual behaviors adopted have not always been 100% controlled. For this reason, it is important to go to a sexual health clinic, or to your general practitioner, for a completely free and confidential checkup.
After this necessary preamble, addressed to those who do not know how STDs manifest themselves, let us briefly recall what are the typical symptoms with which STDs usually present themselves. In both human genders, STDs can manifest themselves with a plurality of manifestations: unusual discharge from the vagina, penis or anus; pain during urination; lumps or skin growths around the genitals or anus; a rash; unusual vaginal bleeding; genital or anal itching; blisters or sores around the genitals or anus. Of course, symptoms vary depending on the specific sexual infection diagnosed in the patient.

In the case of chlamydia, which is asymptomatic in at least half of cases (up to 70% for women), symptoms occur one to three weeks later. Vaginal discharge or discharge from the penis; pain when peeing; vaginal bleeding between periods or after sex; pelvic pain for women and testicular pain for men. In the case of genital herpes, symptoms of infection occur over the next 4-7 days, with itching and then blistering around the genitals, and pain when peeing. In the case of genital warts, symptoms begin after about a month, up to several years after contact with the virus. Symptoms include: small, fleshy, painless or slightly itchy growths on the genitals or anal area. Gonorrhea manifests itself after at least two weeks, with yellowish or greenish discharge from the genitals, and pain during urination. Symptoms of scabies, if you have not previously contracted it, take over a month to appear. In case you have already had it, you will experience genital itching and eruptions of red spots after a few days. Syphilis symptoms take two to three weeks to appear, with one or more small painless genital sores or a patchy rash and flu-like symptoms.
