My Boyfriend Wants Me To Get Tested
You should be expected to be a sexually responsible member of the dating pool if you’re going to date around. After any new partner, I like to be checked, and I’d like them to do the same.
Take that as a compliment; it sounds like he’s just trying to protect himself and his health. You shouldn’t be having sex at all if you and your partner can’t chat freely about all aspects of your sex life.
I’ve requested that partners be screened before having sex with them, so I’d be a hypocrite if I was insulted if anyone demanded the same of me.
I’ve never understood why this would be considered an obnoxious order. If you were going to give me blood, I’d like to see tests to make sure it wasn’t contaminated with dangerous germs.
It has nothing to do with the amount of money I have. It has nothing to do with how much I like you or how I feel about you as a human because germs don’t care. The same can be said for sperm donations.
If a future partner of mine doesn’t get tested for STD, I’d be a little insulted.
But for the fact that I’d bring it up. If my future partner was offended, I’d be confused as to where I went wrong in selecting a partner who would be offended by the concept. In my partners, I’d have to do some serious soul-searching.
In all honesty, by the time we get to the stage that we’d be having sex, we’ve already talked about STD testing.
Will it irritate you if you were asked to fasten your seatbelt before riding a roller coaster?
It will demonstrate to me that your boyfriend is responsible and cautious when it comes to his sexual wellbeing. It will also demonstrate to me that he is mature and open to discussing topics such as STDs.
People should practice what they preach, so I would not be cool with someone who asked me to take a test and decline to do so.
How long after a new partner should I get tested?If you’ve had several new sexual partners, it’s a good idea to get checked at least once every three months.
If anyone asks you to get checked, don’t be offended; it’s always safer to be healthy. Being honest about your sexual history and health will lead to a happier future relationship.
They’re cautious and open enough to ask for one, which are excellent qualities in a partner.
Testing is simple and inexpensive in most cases. It is now possible to test for the most popular STDs using just a urine sample.
However, there is one thing to keep in mind when getting tested: While tests look for the STDs that are the most dangerous to one’s health, not all tests look for any STD.
As a result, continue to use condoms if you have sex. People should also get tested before they start dating someone new.
However, some people do not use condoms correctly, and even when they do, condoms can leak, break, or fall off during intercourse. Furthermore, STDs may be contracted without having sex.
It’s vital to get checked on a regular basis, and I’d be better with someone who shared my feelings rather than being offended.
In the end, your boyfriend is neither overly cautious or paranoid about you.
This is a wise man who is concerned for his and your welfare. For your own sake, you should get checked.
