Talking To Millennials About STDs

by | Sexual Health

STDs continue to be a major issue that affects young and older people. It’s also an issue with which you may have a difficult time discussing with your sexual partner(s). Below are a few recommendations, from recent articles, regarding STDs:

  • Obtain a diagnosis and get treated immediately if you experience STD symptoms.
  • Educate yourself about the disease, when diagnosed, before you have a discussion with your partner(s).
  • Talk to your partner(s) about the disease as soon as possible.
  • Inform your past partner(s) if you think you have had the disease for some time.
  • Talk to your partner(s) by telephone if you feel you cannot have a face to face discussion.
  • Discontinue having sex until the STD is eliminated.
  • Be honest with your physician.
