Anna Duggar Was Smart to Get Tested For STDs After Finding Out Josh Cheated

Ugh. It sucks that this woman has had so much to deal with this year, but at least there's one thing she doesn't have to worry about. According to a source close to the family, Anna Duggar has been tested for STDs following her husband Josh's infidelity revelation -- and thankfully, she has a clean bill of health.



The 19 Kids and Counting star has had herself screened for sexually transmitted diseases, according to a source who dished to Life & Style, and has fortunately tested negative. The insider revealed, "She got tested for STDs ... She was relieved to get a clean bill of health."

Phew! We're relieved for her, and proud of her for facing that reality. Josh admiringly cheated on her God knows how many times after he was exposed in the Ashley Madison hack. One of those times may have even been with porn star  Danica Dillon, who is now suing him over the alleged "rough sex" they had while Anna was pregnant with their fourth child.

When something awful like this happens, it's hard to think about the pragmatic stuff, let alone deal with it, but it's a positive step for Anna if she did have this done.

We're not sure yet if Anna will ultimately decide to divorce Josh, or try to work it out and have a recommitment ceremony as he wants, but making sure your physical health is taken care of is a big step on the road to recovery. No matter which way she chooses, Anna did the right thing, and knowing she is healthy will hopefully help her overcome this painful period in her life.
