Crying or Very sad
I just went to the doctor today & found out I had chlymadia & gonorrhea! The doc told me, & I just couldnt help but cry my eyes out! I am with a guy now & have only slept with him for 5 months...I got tested in September or October sometime & I had no diseases. He had sex 6 months before we hooked up! How long can you carry it in your body before ever knowing, I mean can you carry it in your body all that time & not know? I originally went to the doctor because I have been bleeding now for two weeks...she said I had a small yeast infection, can an untreated yeast infection turn into it, I know so many questions, but PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Chlamydia can be undetected for long long time. And the longer the more it can affect your fertility. This because even thought chlamydia is very easily treated it does cause irreversible damage to the fallopian tubes. So the sooner the diagnosis the better. You can always get pregnant but if the tubes are too damaged it may require IVF.

TREAT SELF, DUMP PARTNER
Before you put away the Kleenex, you should know that unless BOTH of you abstain 100% from each other, are treated for both issues and obtain NEGATIVE screens for both diseases, you will not be able to irradicate it, and will continue to destroy your reproductive system to the point of infertility.

I would not, under any circumstances, allow that man back in your bed without a legitimate STD report that proves his cleanliness, and by all means, do not allow his uncovered penis anywhere near your mucous membranes for the remainder of your lives... if he reconnects with the toilet he laid before you that gave him those bugs, you will br reinfected without any warning at all.

Your best bet is to get treated, retested, and not engage in unprotected sex with another man unless they obtain STD testing and show you the results. You should also be certain that you're protecting yourself from pregnancy, either by responsibly taking the pill, obtaining the shot, etc. because men can not be expected to know when YOU ovulate if YOU aren't requiring a condom-covered penis. If you get pregnant - ESPECIALLY with what you're tracking, you risk that baby's EVERYTHING. Its time you stop being selfish, and start conducting yourself with a little self respect.

I agree with NoBullcrap.

Make him get tested. Tested for EVERYTHING, especially HIV. There is no second chance with some STD's-they can be life-long.

I would even go with him.

Always remember, just because they say they haven't been with anyone in the last 6 months, it doesn't mean it's true! That goes for both men AND women.

Updated on 0514/08, my bf went to the doctor & he tesed negative for both...so that means they either got negative test results or something, because I hadnt foold around with anyone before him for a LONG time! My doctor said that the symptoms I was having meant that I had just recently gotten it! I swear these doctors are pissing me off!!!! I think they got my test results mixed up or something, the lady I went to wasnt even real doctor, she was a nurse practioner that examined me & is my gynecologist!

Nurse practitioners are fully capable of performing examinations.

They take a sample and put it under a microscope, sometimes even blood work.

I'm curious, did they check your blood or just do an examination?
You can always go back and request an actual doctor.

It is not the American Cross's obligation to contact you.

I would say go back to the doctor and request a BLOOD screening for ALL std's.

That might help pinpoint when you could have contracted these.

well I have already been treated for it!I thought maybe if American Red Cross looked at my blood & saw that there was something wrong with it & knew they couldnt use it. The person donating the blood was surely unaware, so they would fill them in ya know! I dont know!!!!!

Maybe you weren't infected at that time? I'm not sure because it's hard to pinpoint when you could have contracted the diseases.

I thought they said you probably contracted these recently?
It could mean that you did so after donating.

I know they check the blood though. I think it is the law that they would have to contact you if you had some kind of communicable disease. I know for a fact that they contact DHEC. I'm pretty sure DHEC then contacts the donor in this type of situation.

You haven't fooled around with ANYONE?

Did you just not have intercourse with anyone else? These could be contracted in other ways.

Then it HAS to be from him.
Either that or they were dormant for that period of time since you were with someone else...
I don't know what to say.

When was your BF tested and how long did it take before they got back to him? It would be a good idea to use condoms with him - just in case. Also get tested for HPV. Men are never tested for HPV, they are carriers though.
