Should I break up with my boyfriend since he infected me with a std?

by Rachel on June 2, 2011

I got diagnose with Trichomoniasis. I already got treated. I am so disgusted that I got this std. I only had 2 partners in my life so far. It turns out that this std is hard to find in men. He says he didn’t know he had it. He is about to get treated. I don’t know if I should break up with him. I am so disgusted by this and I don’t know if I will ever see him the same way again. Any advice?

if it changed your feelings about him then yes, but if not then no.
i mean he didn’t know he had, it all though he should have checked before having
sex with you. However you already have the std now what’s done was done i think it
would be better if you work it out but it’s your choice.

Now you know he likes having sex with other women. If you’re OK with this, then hang on to him. Maybe he has other redeeming characteristics.

Well at least you contracted some thing curable. I can count the number of partners I have had on both hands and I ended up with herpes from my current boy friend. We are still together after 7 years. He also didn’t know that he had it. He says he loves me and wants to be with me no matter what.
Depends on how you feel about him. If you still love him and you can trust him then both of you should get treated and talk about it and try to work through it. If you don’t want to be with him any more, don’t feel obligated to stay with him just because he has the same thing at least let him know how you feel about this situation. You can’t really blame him too much if he really didn’t know about it.
