7 Real Girls Share Their Thoughts On Getting Tested For STDs

Getting tested for STDs is a pretty scary thing, even though it shouldn’t be. It should be stigma-free, but it’s not. There is NOTHING wrong with getting tested. In fact, everyone should get tested frequently. Many STDs don’t show symptoms so you could have something without knowing it. You can even get STDs if you’ve never had sex before so being a virgin doesn’t mean you’re safe.

You should get tested on the reg, whether you’ve had one partner or ten. You can get an STD panel from your doctor, gynecologist, or at a local clinic. There’s really no excuse! Check out these real girls’ thoughts on getting tested:
