How is it possible for me to contract an std (now spread to a full-blown PID) and my husband claims after my diagnosis that he only has a "poison ivy rash" on his penis and mantains he has never cheated?? Married 12 years, five kids and I have NEVER had any kind of vaginal or yeast infection or uti, ever. NEVER been unfaithful.
Thank you for answering. I posted the situation b/c I'm too embarrassed to actually ask friends and needed an objective opinion and a reality check. Your answer confirms what I'm already thinking. Thanks again.
a yeast infection can be caused by things other than be sexually transmitted (e.g. taking antibiotics) but if it is something like chlamidia then that it std and 1 of u has had 2 have got it from somewhere unless it could have beed dormant 4 all this time but i doubt it.
It's not a yeast infection - it's bacterial. or are those the same thing? My ob prescribed antibiotics - which would be in direct conflict with your information that a yeast infection can be caused by taking antibiotics. And I am bleeding bright red fresh blood (and passed a large clot of tissue once)every time I wipe (sorry so graphic), which is not a symptom of a yeast infection, if I understand the info right.
Called my ob tody and told her about husband's claim of poison ivy on/in his member. she aske how he got it there only and doesn't have it anywhere else. She suggested I test for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea.
I want to give him every benefit of the doubt but i don't want to be in denial either.
Well most likely he cheated on you. I mean theres no other reason than that, if you've been married for 12 years well we all now the anser to that. You should get a pap smear usually everything shows up in the results.
