TMI--Do you have an STD??

I saw a post on here one day about STD's. All these mothers said they were clean but I sort of have a hard time believeing that since the number of people getting an STD is growing so rapidly! I know its private but some might feel more at ease if they know someone else has one.

  • Umm, no, actually I don't. If someone did, wouldn't they go get it taken care of?

  • No, but I have had an sti, trich. Funny thing, I didn't actually get it from sex though, all the times I could have and didn't and then the time there was NO way it could've been through sex and I get it then. I also had HPV for a bit, but that one is weird and can show up whenever from who knows when.

  • See and the HPV is a popular one! 80% of women have it/or had it. Like Addy said it can show or not show for quite a while! It scares me with how things are now adays than before and with our kids growing up. Its gonna be worse than it is now! i just pray that they make good decisions.

  • Reason enough alone not to cheat in this day and age. Not that everyone gets them from cheating, but I haven't been single for a long time so I forget that lifestyle . . lol.

  • I do have an STD, I'm open and I'm honest about it, I do NOT have unprotected sex (thanks to my babies father cheating on me it's how I know have this). I always tell my partners about it before hand and it's caused them to walk away from me . I don't blame them it's only fair. I wish that my ex had been smart enough to wrap it up before he slept around... live and learn the hard way ...

  • Anon 1:44, that's horrible, I am so sorry, that would suck so bad, can we ask what it is, since you're anon anyway.....I'm really curious now, if not, I'd understand as well though. How do you deal w/ him now since he's your child's father? That would make things very hard for me, not sure if I'd be able to get past the anger issue!
