I’m not big on telling people what to do.
That being said, there is one thing that I am STAUNCHLY adamant about telling people to do: GET TESTED FOR STDs.
It is for your own health. It is for the health of your partner. It is for the health of the entire global community (aka everyone your partner sleeps with in the future, everyone those people sleep with, and so on).
There is truly no excuse (not a single one!) for not doing it.
You really should be doing it on your own, but you should especially be getting tested if your partner asks to you.

Speaking of the “when your partner asks you to” topic, you should also be asking all of your new partners to get tested before you guys go condomless.
THIS ISN’T SOMETHING TO TAKE LIGHTLY. THIS IS YOUR HEALTH. CAPS ARE TOTALLY ACCEPTABLE HERE BECAUSE THIS MATTERS.
Now, I know this conversation can be a little intimidating, and frankly, it might seem painful to bring it up to a new guy you’ve been seeing. But take it from these male Reddit users, your new dude will know that your request was nothing out of the ordinary.
Everyone should just do it no matter what.

Unless you like super-herpes get everyone tested.
– /u/FruitierGnome
You should be getting tested with every new partner on your own anyway.

You should be getting std test with every new partner and every month until three months after. Some of those bastards can wait for month before they show up on test.
Now if we talk about it for some reason and she refuses to get tested, I would have alarm bells going off. You shouldn’t be defensive if the subject is brought up.
You aren’t being unreasonable here.

This guy’s been married for seven years and is still down to get tested.

I always have done it. Now with my wife for about 7 years and we still occasionally get them

These guys think asking a new partner to get tested is totally reasonable.

Not a bad idea. Reasonable, perfectly reasonable.
– /u/ichi_the_one

Uhm, well, it’s not something i require but i’ve been asked to get myself tested and i did. I think it is perfectly reasonable to ask for, and i think the fact that she refuses to get tested is a big big red flag.
– /u/KovacsTakeshi

100% reasonable request.

Your health is a BFD.

You’re being reasonable. And no, it’s not something “small” this is your health you’re talking about.
– /u/Omnifin
This guy knows certain diseases will be way worse for you than they are for him.

I’m perfectly ok with it and you’re totally reasonable. I’ll usually mention when my last test was and that we should use condoms until I can get one if she wants to go bare. Kind of sucks my insurance doesn’t cover them outside of my annual.
It’s always good to get a new test when changing partners. Some things like Trichomoniasis a man can have but men don’t get any symptoms, but if you give it to a woman they get all sorts of issues.
– /u/i_heart_blondes
He’d rather take the test than get itchy down there.

You’re being very reasonable and it is a shame but I’d cut and run before you start getting itchy “down there”.

This guy thinks NOT getting a test shows bad judgment.

My girlfriend runs an HIV and STD clinic. EVERYONE should get an STD test before having sex with a new partner or after having unprotected sex with someone you are not in a relationship with. I would not be in a relationship with anyone who refused to take an STD test, it just shows their bad judgement which would make me question their judgement as a whole.
– /u/clothesB4hoes
Overall, there’s really no downside to doing it.

Abso-fucking-lutely, health is wealth my dude, and tbh she has as much to gain/lose as you do so it makes no goddamn sense not to test. Shits cheap at PP and you’ll both have peace of mind after, if all goes well, and if not well shit now you know to be careful. There are no downsides!?!?!

All right, now quit reading this article and go get tested.
