Is it possible to have a sexually transmitted disease (STD) and not have any symptoms? If so, how can I know if my partner is infected?

Yes, it’s possible to have an STD and have no symptoms. This also means that your partner can have one and not know it.

If symptoms do occur, they often do so in places that are difficult to see. For example, HIV—the virus that causes AIDS, can live in the body for 10 years without a person showing any symptoms.

HPV is perhaps the most common STD because it usually has no symptoms; people spread it without knowing they have it. Many STDs show no symptoms. Unfortunately, the long-term consequences of untreated STDs can be very harmful to your health.
