  – Takes 3-5 days (up to 30 days) before a guy will notice symptoms in his penis.

 – Ejaculation is not needed to catch it or pass it.

 – 80% of women have no symptoms at all even though they are infected, therefore they may not         know that they are giving you the same disease.

 – Disease can be transmitted to someone else before symptoms occur.
