Can you date someone with an STD?
In other words, you dont need to have this conversation on your first date (unless you want to), but you should absolutely tell your partner before you become sexually intimate with them. “Its super important to make your STI status known prior to having sex with someone new,” sex educator Heather Alberda said.
How do you date if you have an STD?
Theres no way to tell by looking if a person has an STD — even people who have STDs sometimes dont know it. If youve had sex before, you and your boyfriend can get tested together at a local health clinic like Planned Parenthood. Or you can offer to go with your boyfriend for support if he wants.
