The Doctors share sobering statistics that anyone who is sexually active should know! For the fifth consecutive year, sexually transmitted infections are on the rise.
Cases of gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia have increased nationwide and The Doctors note that these STIs can cause infertility and sometimes lead to death. In order to help remove some of the stigmas regarding STIs, The Doctors discuss how to best talk about sexually transmitted infections with your partner.
Certified sex educator Logan Levkoff says the following about having the STI talk:
- Try to remove the shame and stigma of this subject, STIs happen and it has nothing to do with someone's character or cleanliness
- Talking about STIs is a sign of responsibility and if someone refuses to talk about them or get tested, this should be a red flag
- When you are ready, ask if your partner has been tested and even get tested together
The Doctors note some STIs have a lag period between when you have been exposed and when you have been tested, so getting tested twice and on a regular basis is advised.
