Help please..

My mother always told me "stop messing with these dirty boys, you're going to get something you can't get rid of". I've had Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Trichomoniasis. Not somehing to brag about but it's the life I decided to live before I matured. On August 4th I got a call from my OB/GYN and was told my pap came back abnormal and I came back positive for HPV, I cried for 2 hours and to this day it's still hard for me to cope with this news because I simply thought I had a yeast infection. The first thought that came in my mind was "I'm 21 years old at the peak of my life and it's already over, first with Polycystic Ovaries now HPV." I feel extremely guilty for a number of reasons cause one dude I was intimate with called me 4 hours after we hooked up and was like a bump popped up on his penis. I laughed him out because I was like STDs don't work that fast and we used a condom and the only contact he had with my stuff was when we rubbed my clit like it was lottery scratch off and touched his penis afterwards. Please anybody that has been through this please help, any advice would help so much.

Hi there,

Firstly, I am sorry that you have had to deal with this shame--STIs are common and your sex life is nothing to be ashamed about. I also want to state that (as a health educator) the term "dirty" should only be used in reference to hygiene--NOT?STIs. I also live with HPV and have a very fulfilling sex life; this does not mean your life is over, much less the "peak" of your life. It is possible that what the guy you had relations with had an ingrown hair, or is having symptoms from an STI that he got from a previous sexual exposure, not necessarily from the relations he had with you.?

I have had HPV for 2 years now. If you haven't had the vaccine yet, you can get it until the age of 26 and protect yourself from some of the cancer-causing strains. When I found out I had HPV, I was feeling really down as well and had little hope for my sexual future--however, when you take steps to protect yourself like using condoms and talking to your partners about STIs prior to having sex, you can empower yourself to stay safe and keep others safe! There is no reason to feel guilty. You can still have a fulfilling and safe sex life.

Best of luck,
