  • I got chlamydia the first time I ever had sex. It was caught before I had any real symptoms except I had a feeling like freezing cold wind whipping through my lower belly. I told the guy I slept with and he was very apologetic about it and very upset. I dealt with it by making sure it didn't happen again babe.

  • Yep herpes. It was frightening but I took it surprisingly well. I use medication to stave off outbreaks. I told hubs about it a week after we met. He took it well also. To be honest, I'd rather have outbreaks somewhere you can't see them than on my face (cold sores). It's more annoying than anything. It's just something I have to deal with.

  • Nope...I did get a rash from lotion my husband used. He wrestles and his tights bothered him so he bought some lotion and here I was allergic.

  • Yes. I got herpes from my husband when we were still dating. Until I was diagnosed, he never even knew he had it. We think he got it from his ex-wife, who would get cold sores occassionally. He really never had anything more than what appeared to be a minor irritation (for the longest time he thought he was allergic to certain types of laundry detergent), but he did have a mild irritation a few days before we had sex, then a couple days later I got an outbreak. It was awful, I needed pain meds to just sleep at night. It took a long time to accept that it was a part of my life from then on and get to a point to forgive DH (even though he claimed ignorance, that first outbreak made me VERY skeptical), but I was actually really lucky because in the 7 years I've had it, I've maybe had 4 outbreaks and that is it.
