I am Dr. Leandro Mena and I’m here to talk all things STIs.
Most people who have an STI actually may not know that they have one because they don’t develop any symptoms.
While most STIs are asymptomatic, so people who have may not have any symptoms, this doesn’t necessarily mean that they will not have the consequence of these infections causing severe disease.
So that’s why it’s so important that people who are sexually active get tested for STIs. And if they have one, they get treated.
