Can an STD take 12 years to show symptoms?

It could. Best thing to do is just get checked if you are worried you have something.

Yes because most people who contract an STD don’t ever see any symptoms, however if you’ve gotten tested with the 12 years, then you were always negative.

Syphillis, has an initial infection of a sore that goes away, and then is
asymptomatic for a number of years. But during this time it is slowly destroying the body. Al Capone went crazy and died from end stage syphillis. And everyone has heard of AIDS. Someone can be HIV positive and have no symptoms untill they get the AIDS.

STD’s like AIDS and Herpies can be hidden for years.
Get tested.

I had a friend that was in a relationship 10 years prior to receiving the news that she had HIV. She thought that she just had pneumonia, she died within the year. It can happen but please take precautions to make sure that it doesn’t happen to you.
