V-Day and Sexual Health- A PEEPs Perspective
So, Valentine’s Day is coming up, aka single awareness day, right? Well, regardless of whether you have that special someone or not this year, February is the perfect month to learn about sexual health so that we can all be more cautious.
A huge part of sexual health is prevention of STDs. Although not all are necessarily fatal, these conditions can seriously impair one’s health and ability to be sexually active for the long term. Additionally, a lack of treatment can lead to certain types of cancers, infertility, and pelvic inflammatory disease. So, whether you’re thinking about becoming sexually active, already are, or never have been, it’s important to trust your partner and make sure that he or she is healthy before engaging in sexual activity.
Getting tested together isn’t something to be embarrassed about. Because you can know firsthand what you and your partner have, there’s no uncertainty. It’s also a great way to know that he or she cares about their own and your health.
