What should I do if I discover my significant other has an STD I didn't give her?

Answer from our relationship expert:

Discovering that your partner has an STD can be a challenging and emotionally charged situation. First and foremost, prioritize your health and safety. Schedule an appointment with a healthcare professional to get tested and discuss treatment options. It's essential to have an open and honest conversation with your partner about the situation. Approach the discussion with empathy and understanding, recognizing that they may be experiencing fear or shame. Focus on listening to their perspective and understanding how the infection may have occurred. While it's natural to feel a range of emotions, avoid placing blame or resorting to accusations. Instead, work together to address the issue collaboratively and take steps to prevent transmission in the future. Depending on the circumstances, you may also consider seeking couples therapy to navigate the emotional impact of the situation and strengthen your relationship moving forward.
