I recently got into a heated discussion about things related to HPV, Fangirls, and it reminded me how important of an STD it is to talk about. When we think about sexually transmitted infections or diseases, HPV, or Human Papillomavirus, seems to be overlooked much too often. That has to change for a laundry list of reasons, friends.
Fangirls! We of course talk a lot about sexual health here at Fangirls Are We. We’ve had chats about all sorts of stuff and safety how to-s, but today we’re emphasizing one very vital step in being a sexually healthy human. You may do every great, sexually positive thing in the book, but you can never truly know & get updated on your status until you get tested. This term gets thrown around a lot, but I never see a lot of explaining. So today, I’m going to go through whos, whats, wheres, whens, and hows of getting tested.
