STDs have become a common reality for modern adults after 50. What do we need to know about contracting STDs, and how do we talk to a new partner about STDs and STIs? We live longer and healthier, divorce later in life, date online, and start new relationships after 50. All of this contributes to more sex after 50, and most often this sex is unprotected because the fear of pregnancy is removed. Sexual Health Advocate Bonnie Gayle explains that a real problem with the increasing risks of sexually transmitted diseases or infections after 50 is how shame influences how we talk about it and deal with it. How do you avoid contracting SDTs after 50 and talk to a new partner without feeling so much shame? Please share your thoughts and input.
