1 Sexually Transmitted Infections
The Facts

2 What kinds of STI are there?
Virus: HIV, Genital Warts and Genital Herpes Bacteria: Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea and Syphilis Parasite: Pubic Lice If the condom appears on screen then condoms offer good protection against the STI shown

3 What am I? A virus that stays in the body so symptoms can come back
Symptoms are: blisters or sores on the genitals, perhaps with a tingling feeling Can be treated with special creams but usually someone has to have a lot of rest for it to get better

4 Genital Herpes

5 What am I? Most people don’t have any symptoms at all
Symptoms might include pain when peeing, abdominal pain, clear or white fluid coming from the penis or vagina Could cause infertility (can’t have children) A bacteria that can be treated with antibiotics

6 Chlamydia

7 What am I? Caused by a virus called the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
This causes growths in or around the vagina or penis Can be treated at a clinic – treatments are more effective at the early stages of this STI

8 Genital Warts

9 What am I? A parasite that lives in the pubic hair, and sometimes in the chest hair or armpit hair May cause itching around the genitals and other hairy bits of the body Can be treated with special shampoos, creams and lotions

10 Pubic Lice

11 What am I? Symptoms may include pain when peeing,
yellow or green fluid coming from the penis/vagina Can cause infertility (means you can’t have children) A bacteria that can be treated with antibiotics

12 Gonorrhoea

13 What am I? A virus that may not show any symptoms for many years, but breaks down the immune system A virus that lives in semen, vaginal fluids, blood and breast milk A person living with the virus can take medication that can help them live a healthy life

14 HIV Anyone can get HIV, young or old, woman or man, gay or straight
Testing is the only way to tell if someone has HIV – as they may not have any symptoms HIV is passed on most frequently between men and women

15 What am I? This happens in 3 stages: Stage 1: a few weeks after
catching it, painless spots on penis, vagina, anus or mouth Stage 2: a few weeks after stage 1, may get a rash anywhere on the body and feel unwell Stage 3: can happen 3-30 years later. Starts attacking the brain, heart, nervous system… A bacteria that can be treated with antibiotics
