Well, the truth of the matter is that there is always the risk of getting an STD, whether or not you’ve already contracted one. It is true that a lot of STDs can be combatted with medication and even prevented by getting vaccinated in the first place.

This is why it is so important that both you and your partner have a dialogue about STDs and get tested.
