How does an STI manifest itself?? Can a vagina be smelling bad without being infected?
Hi there. Sexually transmitted infections can be asymptomatic, so if you’re sexually active and it’s possible, you should periodically get checked/screened. That said, the most obvious sign would be a change in your discharge and smell. During your menstrual cycle, the discharge can change, but if your discharge and smell changes to something unusual, you should get it checked.
