Of course I am ready and would not be offended by such an offer. Although I have always taken tests for myself and in gynecology they often require them to be taken. But for the peace of mind of her man, I would have handed over again.
I periodically pass tests, not because I worry, there have never been promiscuous relationships. It's just that when you know for sure that everything is in order, somehow the soul is brighter))
Now joint HIV testing is a necessary and integral factor for your safety and your sexual partner. As an HIV consultant, I am often asked a similar question and the answer is always the same - Before you enter into an intimate closeness, be sure to jointly get tested for HIV, and better also for STDs in the CVD.
why can't you pass that? I agree this spoils the romance somewhat, but if such a question has appeared, it's okay. you can take it.
adults all the same.
HIV, according to UNAIDS, is spread among injecting drug users, their partners, prostitutes and their clients, as well as homosexuals. All other causes account for a small proportion of infections. This is in the world as a whole.
In Russia, the absolute majority of HIV-infected: injecting drug addicts, leaders in the number of patients are regions of drug trafficking (Irkutsk region, Sverdlovsk, Kemerovo, Samara, Orenburg, Leningrad regions, Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, Tyumen, Chelyabinsk, Tyumen regions). Prostitutes and their clients are also carriers. In Russia, new risk groups are: street children, youth addicted to new drugs, pregnant women (whose husbands just go to prostitutes), homeless people, migrants, prisoners and persons in custody ...
That is, almost all risk groups: these are marginal segments of the population, one way or another associated with drugs. Therefore, if your partner is from a prosperous family, is not a drug addict and has not been noticed in promiscuous sex, then the risk of infection is practically reduced to zero.
Russia ranks third in the world in terms of the number of new cases of HIV infection after South Africa and Nigeria, and one of the reasons, judging by the question, is “dumb” to go.
There is nothing weird about this and it is quite normal to get tested before sex if there is any doubt about the partner.
