Even w/ a steady bf/gf use a condom. U never know what they’re up to.
Protecting yourself is one of the most important things you can do for yourself in a relationship. Understandably, it can be very hurtful to learn that your partner has exposed you to an STD if they’ve cheated on you, or were dishonest with you about their STD history. Getting tested before a new partner, and after each partner is very important – for you, and for the next person you have sex with.
You should always protect yourself by using condoms, it doesn’t matter whether you’re having oral, anal or vaginal sex.
You should always talk with your partner about STD testing and your STD history before having sex. If you’re unsure of how to talk about sex and STDs, click here.
