Syphilis, HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, and hepatitis A cause a rise in body temperature. If you're having nausea and vomiting, it might not be a stomach flu or something you've eaten. Instead, it is quite possible that it is HIV, syphilis, hepatitis C or hepatitis A. Nausea and vomiting are symptoms of syphilis, hepatitis A, hepatitis C and HIV.
Thinking that you just ate something bad or that you have the flu and that your body will take care of it is a safe way to continue spreading the virus and allowing the virus to penetrate deeper into your system. Infections such as herpes, chlamydia, HIV, syphilis and gonorrhea can cause swollen lymph nodes. Directly, by coming into direct contact with the source of the STI, and indirectly, by contracting the sexually transmitted infection on your fingers or hands and then touching your eyes or face. These infections are caused directly by the source of the STD or by secondary exposure (having the STD on your hand and then rubbing your eye).
A fever always indicates that the body is trying to fight an infection, but many people may not know that the infection could be the result of a growing sexually transmitted disease. If you notice any of these symptoms, if your partner has been diagnosed with chlamydia or another STI, or if your partner has symptoms, see your doctor or nurse or contact your local Planned Parenthood health center. These symptoms are not usually associated with STDs, but they may indicate that an STD has progressed and is now wreaking havoc on the body. The following symptoms don't always mean that someone has a sexually transmitted disease, but they can sometimes be a sign of an STD that has moved on to the next stage.
A body rash is generally not thought to be associated with STDs, but both HIV and syphilis can cause rashes to appear on random parts of the body. If you notice any of these symptoms, if your partner has been diagnosed with chlamydia or another STI, or if your partner has symptoms, see your doctor or nurse or your local Planned Parenthood health center right away. Diarrhea is never fun, and while it's usually a sign that something isn't right, the first thing you think of may not be that you've contracted an STI.
