So you just found out that you may need to take a male STD test… or you just have begun to panic that you have never really thought about it up until now. First of all, sit your shame down at the door. We have all been there. Whether we talk about it or not, most adults have had at least one instance of unsafe sex. Meanwhile, many others have unsafe sex regularly and just aren’t talking about it.
No matter what category you fall in to, it is important to get tested and to know that there is nothing to be embarrassed about. Getting tested not only ensures your good health but also eases your mind… and let’s face it. That sounds really good when you are living in the fear of “what if.” As you journey to take better care of your sexual health moving forward, know that most STDs are treatable and many are curable. Just take the test. You owe it to yourself, your health and your peace of mind.
