Signs of a urinary tract infection often ‘confused’ with STIs

The spokesperson explained: “It should be pointed out that STIs often don’t present any symptoms at all and they can go completely unnoticed, which is why it’s so important to get tested before engaging in any sexual contact with a new partner.

“The main difference is that UTIs are not sexually transmitted.

“Having sex can result in a UTI, but this doesn’t mean the infection is spread from person to person through sexual contact.

“STIs, on the other hand, are spread through unprotected sexual contact with an infected person.”
