6 years loyal together and now this.
I'm brand new to this and am going through my first outbreak now. My boyfriend and I are about to celebrate our 5th anniversary together and instead of wanting to celebrate this monumental year in a hotel room catered with room service; I am writing to you from my bed.
My boyfriend was a virgin when we got together and we were friends for a year before we made it official and had sex. I have had other partners and long-term relationships in the past and it was important to me that we wait.
Our second year together I had been tested for everything just as a precautionary measure to monitor my health and all the tests and blood work came back negative. Now, 3 years later I am having to tell my boyfriend, the love of my life, that I have an STD and that he might have it too.
The doctor tells me that it can lay dormant in your system for several years. But for how long can it remain dormant?
I was abstinent for 1 year while my partner and I were courting and have 5 years sexually active and loyal together with no protection. this just seems like a long time for something like this not to show itself especially after being tested negative 3 years ago.
I haven't had any abnormal paps or other signs. Basically, this came out of left field for me and I have no reason to believe that my partner would be unfaithful to me and feel whole-heartedly that this is my past relationships resurfacing. But I just don't know and I am so so sad.
