OMG I felt the same way! Woah!
According to my OBGYN basically everyone who’s sexually active these days have been exposed to both HPV and the Herpes virus—except only a very small percentage ever develops symptoms. That’s why taking blood to test for these are pointless, as they’ll show up anyway.
I’m glad the comments are providing a source of inspiration…
Anyway… great article Octavia Morrison!—I agree wholeheartedly and this would definitely be a dealbreaker for me too.
