That is why it is important to regularly check your health: an infection or bacterium found on time can almost always be eliminated. here he names five reasons to instill this useful habit.
According to statistics from the World Health Organization, infected partners transmit more than 1 million infections every day through sexual contact – most of them protect contraceptives, but not all.
Test yourself and your partner so you don’t be in an unpleasant situation
Unprotected Sex Safety
If you have a regular partner with whom you prefer intimacy without contraception, checking for genital infections becomes a guarantee of general security. Do not settle for unprotected sex until you go to the doctor together and share the negative results of the infection test – in matters of personal safety, learn to be an adamant. Even a banal kiss can cause herpes, hepatitis B and HIV, as noted by Nobel laureate Luc Montagnier. Confidence in the partner’s health will allow you to relax and “be in the moment,” as sexologists say.
The right to treason
The psychological moment in the analysis is also important in pairs that adhere to the model of free relations. It is important that sexual contact with strangers does not affect the health of a regular partner. Your area of responsibility is to control yourself, especially if you change partners frequently. Not all infections can be detected immediately after infection: the human immunodeficiency virus, for example, the test will show only 3-4 months later. In this case, you need to monitor your tests monthly.
It is one thing when having an infection is about your safety and another when you are putting another person at risk. So, the Russian legislation provides for article 122 of the Criminal Code “HIV infection” – according to it, statistics on the number of prisoners are only growing. So in 2018, the news site RussiaToday (RT) announced a 75% increase in the number of crimes under 122 articles in the period from 2012 to 2017. Although only a person who knows about his illness can be held accountable, it is not worth risking your right to freedom of movement.
Always remember that your health is your personal responsibility. You should not feel guilty for wanting to be sure of the safety of sexual intercourse. A partner who resents your request to be tested is a mentally immature person who should not be dealt with. Respect yourself and regularly visit a doctor who will prescribe the necessary list of tests.
