Every man wants to avoid a penis infection, and that's part of the reason most men adhere to very good penis care regimens. Avoiding sexually transmitted diseases is one of the main reasons a man uses a condom at each and every encounter (or if he does not, he knows he should!). But sometimes, despite a man's best efforts, he could wind up with a penal infection. Some of these can be easily treated, but others will be with him for life, and can dramatically change how he lives his life in the future.
One of the most unpleasurable parts of a penal infection is having to tell former and current partners about the condition. These individuals deserve to know about what is going on so they can get themselves tested and take other steps to protect their own health. But for the person who has to tell them, breaking the news is definitely not an easy matter.
Here are some tips to help the man who must tell a former or current partner about sexually transmitted diseases that he might have shared with them.
1) Be absolutely sure. Do not tell them just on a hunch that a disease might be present. Have the tests, then have the results in hand when making that call.
2) Call or tell them in person. Although it may be tempting to send an email, it's always best to tell them in person, if possible, so they can ask questions immediately. If in-person will not work, call them. And if that will not work, try texting them with a request to talk – now.
3) Do not lay blame. Odds are that if a man has a sexually transmitted disease, he's not sure sure where it came from. If there was only one partner, then obviously it could be clear – but even so, never lay blame on another person when calling to tell them the news. The idea is to get them concerned for their health and get them to get tested, not to make them feel defensive or ashamed.
4) Get the word out fast. Not only do they need to know, they need to know yesterday – so make sure to get the word to them as soon as possible. This can help them get the care they need much sooner, and can prevent them from passing it on to someone else if it turns out they do have the sexually transmitted disease.
5) Come prepared with answers. There will be many questions, of course, and most of them need to be answered by their doctor. But a man might be able to provide some insight to the partner when he mentions the disease. For instance, a guy who has been diagnosed with gonorrhea can reassure their partner that it can be cured, as long as they get to the doctor quickly and take the medication as directed.
6) Be ready for emotion. The very idea of a sexually transmitted disease can make someone feel angry, depressed, angry, horrified, ashamed, defensive and many other emotions – sometimes all at once! And when that emotion hits, they are likely to vent on the most convenient target, which happens to be the guy who just called them with the bad news. So be prepared to listen to what they have to say yet stay calm and cool, even when dealing with that tidal wave of emotion.
Finally, a man should take every step possible to make sure he never has to make that kind of phone call or visit again. He can do this by practicing even better penis care than he has in the past, including always wrapping up the member when it's time to get busy.
And of course, daily care matters as well. He can help ensure a strong, healthy penis with a good penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) . This crème should contain a plethora of protective ingredients, such as L-arginine for better blood flow and oxygenation, alpha lipoic acid to fight free radicals and vitamin A to eradicate bacteria.
