|Testing for STD's|
|06/23/01 at 23:25:33|
Can someone please guide me to where I might find this answer? I'm a revert sister and I'm engaged to be married to a revert brother. We're getting married in 6 months. Since we were both previously married would it be proper for me to ask him to do testing for STD's, if I do it also? I just want to make sure that we are both safe.

|I think that is very smart of you. I am not sure what state you are from, but I do know that some states want a syphllis test done, and basically that is done with blood work. You can basically go to a clinic and have the test done, and tell them you would like blood taken for other STDs. NOW - I am not sure, but maybe you can ask your GYN for this, but maybe there are some STDs that need a physical exam, and not just blood work.|
I think that this is a good idea, if you are getting married for the first time, second time or what ever.

|I think you're right on. This is an excellent idea.|
There is no sense in worrying about it; no need to pry into each
others' past, just get the tests done and move on. Many STDs can be easily
cured with medication and only cause major problems if left undetected
--- and some are hard to detect without an exam, particularly in women.
Testing for some, such as HIV, do require blood work, but others
require different samples being taken. I urge you to discuss this with your
doctor. It may be uncomfortable but it's definitely worth it.
This is not about who did what and condemning people for their past.
You cannot fully be comfortable and living in your present state as a
Muslim if you have ANY nagging fears from your past or your partner's.
