It’s a personal choice. As someone with STIs I totally understand choosing not to get involved with a person with STIs. It is more work and there is no way to be 100% sure you won’t get it. Some people think the extra work and the risk is worth it and some don’t. I do think that it’s important to be honest about STI and your sexual history before the relationship turns sexual.
However, please don’t use the word “clean” when talking about being STI free (or healthy in general) because it does kind of assume those of us without a 100% bill of health are dirty.
I’m disabled and I have herpes, I’m fine if someone doesn’t want to take that on because some people will and that’s all that matters to me.
