Admitting you're sexually active to an adult, like a doctor or nurse, can be embarrassing or scary, and many of us think getting tested for STDs is even worst. But, going to the clinic to get tested doesn't have has to be embarrassing/scary if you don't make it! That's right, getting tested doesn't have to be scary if you don't allow it to be. Getting tested shows you are proactive about your health and responsible, especially if you bring your partner along to get tested with you.
In fact, there is no month like this month to bring up the topic to your partner - April is STD Awareness Month and GYT: Get Yourself Tested Month. If that doesn't make you and your boo excited to make a date at the clinic, maybe the fact that about half of sexually active teens will get an STD by their 25th birthday is enough to make you make that appointment.
And guess what? Getting tested for the most common STDs like chlamydia and gonorrhea is super easy- all you need to do is pee into a cup! So don't wait any longer...find your nearest clinic today and stay protected by getting tested!
