Joan Price has some stern words for seniors who are sexually active: protection is just as necessary for you as for younger lovers! Too many seniors forget to use condoms and other barriers when engaging new partners, and it’s caused alarming trends in sexually-transmitted infections. Joan has some solid advice for how to broach the subject of safer sex and health status with your new partner in this video.
Dr. Derek Andelloux explains the various types of testing your physician can do for sexually-transmitted infections (STIs). These are different depending on your age, gender, and sexual activity, and he explains what kinds of tests you can expect and which ones you may have to ask for specifically. While this doesn’t take the place of a frank discussion with your own physician, it can be a good start for keeping yourself aware of your own sexual health.
