Starting a new relationship can be one of the most exciting and scary times of your life. Couples getting tested together shouldn’t have to be one of those scary times.
With every new relationship comes a new set of firsts for you and your partner. Before you take the step toward your first sexual experience together, take the important step of getting tested.
Protect Your Partner
Partners who get tested before their first sexual encounter dramatically decrease the risk of transmitting a sexually transmitted disease to their new partner, avoiding any potentially uncomfortable situations down the road. When you know your status ahead of time you can seek the treatment necessary for any positive results, keeping your new partner safe. You can also assure them of your clean bill of health, helping to establish the honesty and trust necessary for any new relationship.
Likewise, it is important to take the steps necessary to protect your own health. Asking your partner to be tested before any sexual encounters helps to protect your reproductive health and establishes clear boundaries for your new relationship.
It’s not just new partners who need to be tested. If you are currently in a relationship but have had unprotected sex with your partner without being tested, we recommend you both seek out comprehensive testing options.
We want to encourage couples to take a step toward an even more healthy relationship by getting tested, together. That’s why we offer a 10% discount to couples who call in to schedule their tests with us. Should either of your tests come back with positive results, our physicians can get you both started with a fast and effective treatment plan.
