Notified I may have gonorrhea
Tue, 03-05-2013 - 12:20pm

I am beyond livid. Last week I was notified by the public health department that I have been exposed to gonorrhea. I had to go down to a clinic to get tested and treated where I was questioned about every sexual partner I've had and asked for their addresses and phone numbers. They would not tell me who gave my name. This morning, I get a call from the jerk I've been seeing for a few weeks now and he confesses that he's the one that gave it to me. He has known since last week AND he knew that they were going to contact me. He was too afraid that I'd dump him to tell me that he'd been infected from a previous relationship. Duh-he was too afraid to tell me so he let someone else tell me???? Here I was thinking he was trying to avoid me to dump me and instead it was this. I guess I am supposed to be happy that he "got me treated".

I am so sorry to hear that this happened to you but glad you are getting treated. If I were you I'd go ahead and schedule an appointment with my regular OB/GYN to let her know what has happened and make sure everything is okay.

Good luck!

What a coward! I hope you aren't considering going out with him again?
