Many relationships go through bumpy periods and sometimes come to an end when one or both partners have been unfaithful. The breakdown of a relationship can be an emotional and very stressful time. Sometimes relationships can recover from an affair, but after an incident of infidelity it is always a good idea to not risk your health or the health of your partner and to have an STI and STD check.
There are many reasons why having an STD test is important. Whether your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife or husband may have cheated or had an affair; your casual partner may have had sex with another partner; or your partner or ex may have had a form of sexual intercourse with you at the same time as someone else; in any of these situations he/she has put you at risk of catching an STI.
You can call Better2Know and talk to us about your sexual health concerns in the knowledge that we treat every call with absolute discretion and total confidentiality. Better2Know wants to make sure that you get a test appointment quickly and fast results. We have clinics all over the UK. We can often get you a same day or next day appointment. We do not need your real name to make your appointment, but it is a good idea to provide a name at the time of booking, so that our doctor has a name to call you during your appointment.
If you do decide to rebuild your relationship following an affair, then we recommend that you both get tested so you are both given the reassurance you need. You can attend together if you would like to.
If an affair means that you are considering a divorce and your divorce solicitor or lawyer has suggested you have an STI test, there are some additional measures that Better2Know can take so that your tests results can be used in court. Please contact us for more details.
