Can my partner and I both get tested?

Yes, and it’s highly recommended that you do so. Many STD/STI’s are asymptomatic and can go undetected for years. Though the use of condoms drastically reduces the risk of infection, there’s no guarantee that you or your partner will avoid passing an infection to the other. Practicing safe sex regularly is always a smart thing to do, but play it safe and get tested regularly to ensure that you are protecting your own sexual health as well as your partner’s.
