How many of you have an STD?

How have you dealt with dating new men? When did you tell them? How did they take it? How has it effected you? I obviously expect most of the replies to be anonymous as it is really no ones business, but I was wondering if anoy other women have had smiliar experiences to my own....i have herpes, but the only outbreak i have ever had was the initial one about 2 years ago....my current man took it well, saying "well, that's all you had to say" and grabbing a condom.

  • I have HPV, as do a ton of other women...they just don't realize it. I didn't know I had it until I was already married with 3 kids so it didn't affect me any.

  • When I was 3 months pregnant with my daughter I tested positive for Clymidia. I was very upset but luckily it is treatable. My daughters father swore up and down it wasnt from him so he refused to take the antibiotic and we broke up....I took it and tested negative...We got back together and I asked the dr to test me again just to be safe and i got a positive...Then he finally took the antibiotic but then it was to late. We were done. And I have been negative since.

  • I can honestly say I have never had an STD in my life and I am checked. I do feel bad for the women who have contracted any kind of STD although I have no idea what they are going through

  • being in the military has absolutely nothing to do with having an std or not.

  • i had or have hpv. only had symptoms 3-4 times since i got it 15 years ago. only had one abnormal pap because of it. also, i got herpes from my hubby. not because he cheated but because he gets cold sores on his lips and well ya know. it can be spread that way. only had one outbreak though.
