I’m quite ocd when it comes to bugs and germs and can go over the top

I wondered what do most people do when it comes to new relationships in terms of sex and sti’s. Do most people

a) ask their partner to get tested before any sex?

b) Use condoms for a while and only ask them to get tested with unprotected sex

c) Only ask them to get tested if either of you have any sti related symptoms

It depends on the specific person and their preferences.

Most people who use contraception seem to use condoms for hookups and casual relationships that are not exclusive.
While people in committed medium to long term relationships that they believe to be exclusive are often willing to agree to rely on birth control measures without barrier protection against std's (like pills, coil, contraceptive injections, implant).
Then get tested twice a year as a matter of routine or if they start to feel concerned that they may have symptoms/a non-monogomous sexual partner.
