Topic Tuesday: My partner told me he has an STI. Did he cheat on me?

Unfortunately, the only way to obtain a sexually transmitted infection is through sexual activity.

If you have not been tested for STIs recently, it is also possible that your partner is faithful and contracted the STI from you. Unfortunately, many women are not aware that they have a sexually transmitted infection because some infections are asymptomatic (no symptoms). It is important to be screened regularly, and especially with each new sexual partner. Now that you know your partner has an STI, make sure you both are treated adequately before having sex so that you do not continue to pass the infection back and forth. Consistent condom use is the only way to reduce the risk of an STI!
