Aria Tested?

 

Alright. So here we go. Getting tested. How can I express this…. IT’S IMPORTANT. The CDC recommends testing every 3 months and sooner if there is a potential exposure (usually referring to unprotected sex).

STI’s are on the rise…. it is as if we are on a treadmill and someone is raising that incline! Bacteria resistant strains of STIs are more common and treatments are becoming less effective!

Have that discussion with your partner about how often you are having unprotected sex and sex with others. Be honest. Let’s enjoy the sex we are having without sharing the infections that can be associated.

Don’t know where to get tested? Here are some places!
