Part of your post makes no sense and is ridiculous. "You've got to protect yourself." Get real. Are you saying that you use a condom even though you and your partner have been tested and you think you're monogamous? No way. If you insist on using a condom in a monogamous relationship, then you obviously do not trust your partner, so why are you with them anyways? 2 people should always get tested before a relationship. Its up to BOTH of them to remain faithful.
