Tell Your Partner About STDs

Making a decision regarding telling your partner about your STD test in London is always going to be a toughie. You might be asking yourself whether to do it or not.

Telling your partner about your STD test in London should be a must

From a relationship point of view, there really is only one answer. That answer is of course, yes. It is important to tell your partner. It is understandable that you could be concerned about the effect telling him/her would have. However, if you don’t mention it and it comes to light later, that could be disastrous.

Perhaps telling your partner about your STD test in London is something you should put-off, until you’ve had the results? That way you have the option of keeping quiet until you know the results. The only problem you then have to wrestle with is your conscious. Should you be keeping secrets?

If you really care for someone, your first thought will be for their health and well-being. If you have an STD and you do not tell your partner about your STD test in London, you will infect him/her. This could have serious long term effects on his/her health. He/she could be rendered infertile.

Go for STD testing together

Because STDs can often be asymptomatic (they display no symptoms) it is possible either you or your partner could be carrying an infection without knowing. Infections can go hidden for months and even years.

It may therefore be a sensible idea for both you and your partner to go for testing at the same time. This would certainly remove the problem about having to tell your partner about your STD test in London for you only.

It is a simple and logical solution, and one that couples ought to take, in order to protect each other’s health and well-being.
