Before starting a new sexual relationship, always discuss your sexual health history with your partners. Couples who truly love each other and respect their partners will have no issues sharing. Most importantly, abstain from sex until you and your loved one are cleared from having STIs.
Once you are both screened and tested free from any infections, remember, STAY FAITHFUL. Only have 1 partner at one time. If you have many partners, you increase your risk of getting infected with STI or HIV. You’re young and you have a future waiting for you to reveal its brilliance, so don’t forget to protect yourself!
