Ladies and gentlemen,
Go to your doctor and get a check up at least once a year for your sexual health. Whether you have one partner or multiple partners, whether you are emotionally monogamous or not, get tested!
At least once a year when you visit your doctor you should have the full spectrum of sexually active related medical tests ran to update your medical records. ***Including having your blood drawn.
If you are sexually active, be responsible.
Taking care of yourself takes care of others.

There’s no excuse for ignorance especially when it comes to HIV testing. Most cities in the United state have programs available that offer free HIV blood tests to anyone interested.
Go to: http://www.Aids.gov where you can find a local free testing site near you or contact your local health department.
Most humans will experience at least one case of Sexually transmitted disease in their lifetime. Although experiencing one or contracting a virus can be devastating at first, like most sports injuries, it is not the end of the world!
In most cases the worst thing that can happen is a tough insensitive interaction with a partner you share the personal information with who takes it badly. And honestly, that’s their own ignorance and immaturity. Do not allow emotional stress to effect your decision to find out everything there is to know about YOU. Be well.
Take care of yourself and each other.
