Regardless of the risks associated with unprotected sex, it’s no surprise that many people engage in this dangerous activity. Unprotected sex happens quite often, and it can happen to the best of us. For some, it’s in the heat of the moment; for others, it can be the result of a night of drinking, and then there’s that invincible “it can’t happen to me” attitude. Left untreated, an STD can result in serious complications, such as blindness, heart problems, joint problems, nerve damage, and even death. The good news though, is that a home STD kit can test for a variety of sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis. It’s an affordable, easy, and discreet way of checking for an STD.
Often, people believe they are in a one-on-one, committed relationship, and that there is no need to be tested for an STD. In fact, no one can really be sure of this, given the high incidence of cheating brought on by social media. No one is going to care more about your well-being than you, and the partner who strayed is highly unlikely to admit to the fact.
