Hi Rohendra,


Thanks for the question. Which sexually transmitted infection (STI) are you referring to? Sexually transmitted infections consist of various types of diseases. The incubation period, which is the time from infection entering the body to causing symptoms, is different for each disease. Here are some examples:


Gonorrhea, or gonorrhea, is an STI caused by the bacterium Neisseria gonorrhea. The incubation period for gonorrhea is generally 10 days

chlamydia, has an incubation period of 1-3 weeks

lymphogranuloma venereum, an STI caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, which causes sores/ulcers on the genitals and enlarged lymph nodes in the groin. The incubation period is 3 days to 3 weeks

trichomoniasis, has an incubation period of 1 month

genital herpes, which is an STI caused by the herpes simplex virus which causes a skin rash to appear in the genital area in the form of sores or painful blisters on the skin. The incubation period varies from 1 day to 3 weeks, but is generally 3-7 days

syphilis, an STI caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum, which has an incubation period of about 3 weeks

If you have symptoms in your genital area, please immediately consult a dermatologist and genital specialist for further examination. In general, the doctor will need to ask about your complaints and your sexual history, then examine your genitals. The doctor will also take a sample from your genitals (if any) for examination in the laboratory. Treatment will be determined according to the STI that causes your complaint.


You should heed the following suggestions:

avoid changing partners
use protection (condoms) to reduce the risk of contracting STIs
avoid having sex if you have symptoms

Hope this information is useful for you.
