    I was just wondering if I should get my boyfriend tested before we have sex.

    My mum has always told me I should get my sexual partner tested before I do anything with them.

    To give an idea of him, he has only had sex once before with someone else and protection was used(condom). We also intend to use protection (condom and pill).

    So should he get tested for any STDs beforehand just incase?
    Thank you

    You should add a yes/ no poll.

    Depends, but I err on the side of caution. Its less of an issue if they use condoms as the risk is much reduced, but they do tear and you may wnat to move to not using them.

    ps boys can sometimes lie. Maybe for equality both get tested at the same time?

    One must consider how much offence he would take if you asked him to, but that's something to consider for yourself.

    In my opinion, the chances of him having an STD are very low.
