GETTING TESTED FOR ALL THE RIGHT THINGS

QUESTION
I just began a new relationship. We got tested for HIV together and are both negative. We want to be able to have unprotected sex. What else should be we be getting tested for?

ANSWER
Kudos for being so responsible and prepared. If you go to a clinic, you can ask the clinician for a comprehensive STD exam. Once you are at a clinic, you can talk to someone about what types of tests are most appropriate for you. Most likely you will be tested for STDs like chlamydia, gonorrhea, herpes, and syphilis depending on your age and what type of sex you like to have and with whom (men, women, or both).

To find out about getting tested, visit City Clinic for places in San Francisco or HIVTest.org

Get tested, and then go celebrate!

To your health,
Dr. K
