STDs and women
For women, STDs are harder to see and feel
Compared to men, women are less likely to have symptoms of common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) such as chlamydia and gonorrhea. Symptoms that do occur can go away even though the infection is still in your body. If the STD is not treated, it can cause infertility and ectopic pregnancy.
