You get Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) by having sex with no condom with an infected person. Using condoms EVERY TIME you have sex protects from STIs and HIV. Wounds/pimples on private parts, strange discharge, itching, back/stomach pain may be an STI. Many STIs have NO symptoms so go for tests if you had unprotected sex. ALL sex partners must be treated or you will get infected again. Get treated FAST because STIs increase risk of catching HIV and lead to serious illness and infertility. Many STIs are EASY to treat.
