How do I help my friend who has had multiple sexual partners, but does not want to get tested?
Your friend’s decision to not get tested is entirely their own. The best thing you can do in this situation is to try and understand the position your friend is in, so you can offer support in whatever ways you can.
Let the friend know that you want to help make sure they’re 100% safe so they can have the experiences they want.
Explain that peace of mind is so much better than unknowingly spreading an STI to multiple sexual partners.
Explain that most common STI’s are treatable.
Offer to go with them to get tested.
If they still don’t want to get tested, there’s truly nothing you can do but support them through whatever happens. You’re a great friend for trying.
