No matter how long you have been married, you never ever truly know the person you are living with. This topic is especially true when it comes to sexual health of partners. You probably don’t want to know about the sexual history and antecedents of your partner even out of curiosity, but you need to be careful about your own health and body.
It is very important to get regular sex health check ups at least once a year just to be on the safe side. Although it is an awkward subject to breach with your partner, you can deal with it honestly and with sensitivity so that you don’t end up looking as if you don’t trust your partner or make him/her feel that he/she has been cheating on you.
A comfortable relationship with your partner means that you will be able to maintain your sexual health without any hiccups. If you suspect that you or your partner may have an STD, you should consult a qualified practitioner at the earliest.
A sexual health check up may also be related to HIV/AIDS, fertility issues, reproductive and breast cancer, menstruation and sexual performance problems.
Sexual health is not something that should be swept under the carpet. Remember – preventive care of your health is the best way to ward off unwanted diseases.
