Slide 6

Curable STDs that are usually non-ulcerative include gonorrhea, chlamydia and trichomoniasis.

In women, gonorrhea and chlamydia are usually without symptoms, or asymptomatic, but may result in vaginal discharge. In men, gonorrhea and chlamydia usually produce discharge from the urethral opening at the tip of the penis. This can occur with or without painful urination.

In women, trichomoniasis usually produces vaginal discharge. In men, it is almost always asymptomatic.
