• How to Share STD Status With Your Dating Partner Posted by Admin on Nov 11, 2018

    How to Share STD Status With Our Dating Partner?

    It is crucial that you inform your dating partner because they are supposed to know they are at risk of getting infected. But get tested first. Then get prepared about the disease and cautions about dating. And before have sex while dating, it is most important to confirm the STD status with your dating partner. Ask and get STD tested are recommended. Tell them your story and talk about prevention methods could greatly help with your relationship. Blame is meaningless. 

    First, Get Tested

    Having a sexually transmitted disease (STD) not only affects the body but also puts a strain on the infected individual emotionally. A lot of STDs are curable and those that cannot be cured get treated such as HIV/AIDs and herpes. Nonetheless, STDs need to be treated for them to go away otherwise they are capable of causing permanent problems to the patient’s body. STD dating is at risk and that is why communication is important so as to know the way forward.

    The need to talk about your status with your partner

    When you test positive for STDs, it is crucial that you inform your partner because they are supposed to know they are at risk of getting infected. There is a risk you might lose them or they may get angry, however, it is a risk you have to take. You need to inform your partner about the type of STD you are infected with e.g. gonorrhea, secondly, you should tell them how you got infected for instance you got it from another infected partner. Thirdly, you should inform your partner about how STDs are spread, STDs mostly spread through contact with body fluids of infected individuals such as semen or vaginal fluids. Additionally, getting in contact with infected skin or mucous membranes may lead to infection. This information will be the basis of how you carry on with your relationship, like whether you will continue being with each other or not.  

     Why should we tell our dating partner our STD status?

    • First and foremost, it is illegal to not inform your partner about your STD status in some states
    • If not treated early, some STDs can affect the fertility of an individual
    • In some cases, some STDs are life-threatening particularly when they are not identified and treated.
    • When an infected person gets treated while his/her partner doesn’t, it might result in reinfection.
    • Informing a potential partner will help them in making informed decisions such as taking steps to avoid infection so as to protect their health.
    • You will be giving a former or present partner a chance to check whether they are okay or also infected.

     How to confirm they accept it before saying”I’m STD positive, but continue to go dating with me”?

    After telling your partner about your condition, the most important thing that you can do is listening to what to say regarding what they are concerned about, their fears and also make sure to tell them about the symptoms. In case you and your partner are participating in sexual intercourse, you are required to stop until you see a medical practitioner to know the way forward because dating with STD can be dangerous to both of you.

    How to require them to share STD status with us?

    When you see that your relationship is about to head to the next level, that is having sexual relations, it is important that you know their sexual history too, so here are the ways to do it.  

    • Ask

    Do not be afraid to ask the question, just be straight up with your partner and see what happens next. Research shows that many people have a tendency to lie especially when you are engaging in casual sex, however, others can tell you the truth. However, getting an honest answer does not mean you are 100% safe because sometimes a person can be infected without knowing.   

    • Get tested

    Getting tested and sharing it with your partner will make the partner tell you the truth in return because you are showing them that they can trust you.

    • Tell them your story

    You should also tell your partner about your health history so that they may know and find a way of handling the situation, particularly in cases where you have diseases such as HIV/AIDs as well as Herpes which never get fully treated.

    • Talk about prevention methods

    To prevent future infection, you can get vaccinated for diseases such as HPV (human papillomavirus), in addition to using condoms. You and your partner should also agree on family planning methods, using condoms is the safest way of preventing STDs before fully knowing both your STD status.

    • Do not blame

    When you discover later on that you have been infected with an STD, it is important that you do not place blame; some people can be malicious and intentionally infect others, in such cases, it is critical that you get cured and be more careful next time.

  • Why People Just Diagnosed Positive Most Need STD Dating Sites Posted by Admin on Nov 05, 2018

    STD dating sites makes newly diagnosed singles relax and love again

    Depression is what most newly diagnosed people feel. What do they need most is love and support without STD stigma. STD dating site offers a free and released space to recover from STD depression.

    If you have just been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease (STD), it is obvious you will spend a lot of time trying to figure out your next move. Some of the STDs do not immediately show signs and thus if you have a partner, it may be relatively hard to figure out whether or not you should let them know about it or not. Also, you do not have the slightest idea on how your partner of your family members will take it if you actually decide to break the news to them.

    Newly diagnosed people experience a mixture of feelings, bad feelings, after realizing that they are suffering from a health condition that might or might not be cured and may distance them from their loved ones. First, such individuals are at first shocked at the news. For instanc3e, say you were just in one of your normal health checkups and your doctor diagnoses you with gonorrhea. You will be obviously shocked since you did not expect it.

    Additionally, some newly diagnosed STD patients actually fall into depression. The news and the existence of the disease may affect the normal way in which they think and even act. Fear comes in when a newly diagnosed individual does not know what to do next or even have the slightest idea of what will happen next. In some instances, an individual more so a family member or a spouse is likely to feel lonely since they feel alienated from the rest of the normal people; those who are not suffering from the similar disease.

    Given the things that newly diagnosed people go through especially before they really take in and accept their new conditions, they obviously need company from friends and even lovers. It is therefore important to seek the company of family members or close friends after the diagnosis. As for the other people, we should know better than to exempt STD patients from the normal community operations. We should accept them and offer them all the support that they need. This way, they will be less likely to suffer depression and being in the company of people, they will no longer be lonely.

    Finding a lover and going on to date is also among the things that these individuals need most. However, dating with STD is not particularly easy. I mean, no one wants to get hooked up with someone who has an STD, right? The availability of STD dating sites has been of great help to these individuals since now they can be able to find someone to relate to and share their stories with. The aspect of loneliness id thus eliminated successfully. Before being allowed to contact anyone else on the dating sites, you have to first comply by filling a profile completely.

    Dating sites for people who have been diagnosed with STD offers numerous services to help them in the acceptance process and enable them to lead back to a rather normal life. These STD dating sites are free to register and browse and they also provide useful free information support to the users. The fact that they are freely available means that they are available to most of the people that need them. The free information could include such details as the best ways to protect yourself from further secondary infections and the best ways to be open and accepting the diseases. After the diagnosis, the healing process is more important. They are also able to read information on how other people in a similar predicament have in the past have been able to overcome the diagnosis. From the website, you can find a lover and even start dating and lead a relatively normal life thereafter. A good thing with having a partner who totally relates to your disease is that you will not have to keep it as a secret from them or even have to carry the burden of keeping it inside you.

  • 2018 STD annual calendar: events, conferences and awareness days/months (1) Posted by Admin on Mar 26, 2018

    2018 Annual STD, HIV, HERPES, HSV awareness days, events and international conference calendar

    Every year we announce the annual awareness days, months and international events which are related to our STD singles. To encourage the spread of awareness of these infections, it is essential that more and more of the awareness events are organized. The events that have already marked their dates for this year are listed below and are excellent opportunity to broaden your horizons about them.

    Moreover, international as well as regional meeting and conferences are also major STD events every year. The scholar and institutional conferences often represent the newest innovation and cutting-edge development in Sexual Transmit Disease cure: HSV treatment, HIV vaccine, AIDS medicine etc. With a rise in the recent NGO’s, charity from the different government bodies and international help and support more and more people should think about holding campaigns, lectures, and programs in their schools, colleges, and universities.

    March should be a great start where you can start saving your dates to celebrate some important events related to STDs and alongside also make it a point to attend all the events that have been organized by the different institutions and the government.

    With a quick rise in the LGBTQ rights and the worsening increase of sexual assaults experienced in a year April should proudly be a month with the most organized events.

    May should be primarily dedicated to the teenage, and the younger adults as teen pregnancy have not only shown a rise in its incidence but also earned greater acceptance in the recent years.  The schools and colleges should especially try and organize as many events as possible to make the younger generation more cautious about the choices they make and the precautions they can take.

    The heat of June is usually booked for picnics and outdoor activities and can mark as an excellent month to talk about many serious issues that can lead to the avoidance of the rise of sexually transmitted diseases. Also, it is critical to encourage women all over the world to go for a regular cervical screening test especially now that many women are being diagnosed with it. Moreover, charitable organizations should play a vital role in carrying out free HIV screening tests to keep track of the spread of it.

    Hepatitis is a life-threatening disease that has received recognition and further research in the recent years. However, it would be an even more significant advantage if the public too would be informed about it. The special days allotted to them can be a great opportunity to take these measures ahead. The best way to work on the start of everything is immunization itself and the month of August is just the month to go ahead with all possible events to meet our needs.

    2018 Annual STD, HIV, HERPES, HSV awareness days, events and international conference calendar

    The September should be all about women and the precautions that they can take to avoid all the possible incidences of the cancerous conditions that cost you your life.

    The important part about STDs, HIV, and Hepatitis is that it is easily transmitted from the mother to the baby during the pregnancy period and it is a must that these women who are already infected or are at a high chance of being infected with this disease should receive the exposure of screening tests.

    Owing to the greater acceptance of the transgender society, more people should be instructed about the risks and precautions that come along with it.

    And finally the AIDs which is yet another most common disease in our society equally needs immense awareness too, and December is the perfect month to do so.

    The increase in these infections has not only destroyed many lives but also continue to do so even in the age of the most advanced drugs. This is probably because many of these drugs are now subject to resistance leaving them useless for the human body. Therefore awareness campaigns are a must to altogether put an end to the spread of infection.
