I was raped in 2010 at 15 and didn't catch anything, and when i finally plucked the courage to start going out properly with friends, something else happens.
In Feb 2012, i was raped by four different guys, eventually i plucked the courage to go to the police, all four of them are currently in jail. 3 days after it happened i had a outbreak, i didn't know back then, i thought i was in pain, but a week later i went to the doctor who referred me to the clinic at a local hospital. i was then told i had herpes, was given ointment and tablets. i was then taken more tests to see if i had anything else.
A week later when i was coming home from college i got told that i had chlamydia, as you all know it curable unless i come back into contact with it again. Since then i have been self conscience about being with boys. i broke up with my boyfriend who kept pushing me to tell me what was going on. i told him about the rape but not about the STD, and refused to have sex with him afterwards, because i didn't want him to catch it. Please can someone tell me if my dreams of having a baby without my future partner catching it. sorry its long... Please could you reply soon, its killing me thinking i cant have a proper relationship
Oh my, I can relate to you on so many levels, I was raped back in 2000 while at college that is also how I caught this virus and I also had gotten chlamydia at the same time so I totally understand what you are going through. I was open and honest with my boyfriend at the time and talking to him helped me deal with everything a bit better.
This virus will not stop your life you can go on to have kids get married do what ever you want to do. I was married (4 yrs and he never caught it) but now divorced but dating someone, I haven't any kids yet but I do want them and I know that is possible. The risk of transmission to a partner is always going to be there, but many many people are accepting of virus.
*Please remember you can still transmit (even when no signs)& catch herpes even while using a condom since it is transmitted from skin to skin contact or from sore secretions not inanimate objects*
