When Your Partner has a STD

Finding out your partner has a sexually transmitted disease is a big stress on a relationship. Not only do you have to deal with the medical implications but also the probability that your partner has not practice safe sex at some point. 

Get Tested for STDs

The first thing to do when your partner has an STD is for you to get tested. This will confirm what infection you have contracted as well as find out the specific nature of your partner’s infection. It is difficult to be completely sure about who infected whom and when unless you both were tested before you had sex. Even though in the majority of cases, the appearance of STD symptoms points to a relatively recent infection, there may be exceptions.

Don’t Wait to Find Treatment

The first choice for treatment in case of an STD infection should probably be the individual’s regular physician. Most family physicians can effectively treat common STDs but in case they have doubts, they can always refer you to a specialist. Women in fact are more comfortable in some cases talking about their STD symptoms to a gynecologist rather than their family medical doctor. No matter who you see, getting treatment for a STD is of the utmost importance to prevent any further health issues and permanent damage.

Practicing Safe Sex with Your Partner

The very fact that your partner has a sexually transmitted disease implies that there has been a lapse in practicing safe sex somewhere in their history.  No matter who was responsible, it is time for you both to discuss how to avoid something like this in future again and practice safe sex moving forward. Talk about making STD screenings an essential part of your health program.
