I know, not the most enjoyable topic but it’s important for you to know the facts.
Are you currently in a relationship or seeing someone? Are you having sexual intercourse or oral sex? The CDC recommends you be tested yearly (if you’re sexually active) or every time you have sexual contact with a new person. This is one of the keys to protecting your overall health.
STDs are serious business and should not be ignored, especially if you are having symptoms. Make sure you have an honest and open conversation with your partner about your sexual past and learn about theirs. This will help you build trust while learning about your exposure risk.
