Welcome to e health forum.

STDs are associated with people who have a promiscuous and highly risky sexual behavior.

Examples of high-risk sexual behavior include:

Unprotected intercourse without male or female condom use, except in a long-term, single-partner (monogamous) relationship.
Unprotected mouth-to-genital contact, except in a long-term monogamous relationship.
Early sexual activity, especially before age 18.
Having multiple sex partners.
Having a high-risk partner (one who has multiple sex partners or other risk factors).
Having anal sex or a partner who does, except in a long-term, single-partner (monogamous) relationship.
Having sex with a partner who injects or has ever injected drugs.
Exchange of sex (sex work) for drugs or money.

Such Risky Sexual behavior can can predispose you to sexuallly transmitted infections which can include HIV, Hepatitis C, hepatitis B, gonorrhea, syphilis, Herpes, etc. Hence all people should refrain from such Risky sexual Behavior.

The most common symptoms of STDs include - Itchiness, sores, and unusual discharge coming from the genitals.

If you think that you might be at risk of STDs, you can seek proper tests. Testing for STDs is generally done via a panel of tests including tests for chlamydia, gonorrhea, oral herpes, genital herpes, HIV-1, HIV-2, hepatitis A, B, & C, and syphilis.

Tests for Gonorrhea , chlamydia give highly accurate results after 4 weeks of exposure.

Tests for Hepatitis A - highest accuracy after 8 weeks.

Tests for Hepatitis B , hepatitis C, Syphilis and HIV - give highly accurate results after 12 weeks.

It would be best that you consult a STD clinic and seek proper counselling and appropriate tests to clear your mind.

I hope this helps.
