I have an STD.
November 19, 2012
Do you remember when I went to the doctor? Well, I was hoping I could talk to you about that.
I got tested for STDs, and I have an STD. It’s curable, but I have to be on medicine for a while. This whole situation has made me realize how important safer sex is, and I know I have to be careful and use condoms and/or dental dams from now on. It’s been pretty scary for me, and I needed to tell someone who I know will love me no matter what and who I can turn to for support.
(Depending on what STD you have it may be curable, but STDs like herpes and HIV are chronic. This means they will never go away, but by practicing safer sex with condoms or dental dams the risk of transmission can be greatly lowered.)
