If the bad old days, cheating spouses who contracted a vicious strain of sexually transmitted disease would be forced to go through the mortifying, heart-rending experience of admitting infidelity.
As if it's not bad enough to know your husband has been stepping out on you, now you have to worry about how the delicate balance of chemicals in your vagina will handle chlamydia treatment.
Thanks to a change in the state's STD treatment laws,
now you can slip some penicillin into your unknowing spouse's morning
coffee and have enough left to keep your own inflamed genitals from
breaking out. We live in a blessed age.
The new law will allow doctors to prescribe medication for an infected patient's partner without requiring a separate in-person examination. Since it's often difficult for doctor's to make sure a patient's partner comes in to get tested, this will hopefully get treatment to more people who need it but might otherwise be afraid of a doctor's visit.
This is all good news for Kansas City, which was recently given a D- grade for our STD rate. Remember folks, no matter how much they change the laws, a condom is always going to be cheaper than Valtrex. Act accordingly.
