Types of sexually transmitted infection (STI)

There are lots of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and many of them have their own symptoms.

However, some don’t have any symptoms but can still cause long-term problems, like not being able to have children.

It’s important to find out what the different STIs are, and how they can be detected, treated and, most importantly, how to avoid catching them.

There are some infections which are not transmitted by having sex but it’s still important to know about these.

See the FPA website for a range of downloadable leaflets on contraception and sexually transmitted infections.

The British Association for Sexual Health and HIV (BASHH) website also features a range of downloadable leaflets on STIs.
