Notes

Some of these signs and symptoms can be caused by illnesses/conditions that are not sexually transmitted and so you should consult your GP or visit CHYPS Plus to get the symptoms checked out.

Some of the STIs may not necessarily show any symptoms. Even if nothing feels, looks, or smells different than usual, you still need regular sexual health check ups. HIV/AIDS can present with any of these symptoms and it can affect any bit of your body, like finding swellings in your neck and groin, having jaundice, having a temperature or having no symptoms at all. just because you have a symptom, it does not mean you have HIV but it is always safer to get it checked out so come in and see us.
