I would definately get treatment for your std and make sure you have the all clear before getting intimate again. Make sure you use protection to avoid being in this situation again! Good luck finding a man!

Its best to explain everything before it gets to intimacy. not informing someone of the std is wrong. The right man will be understanding

I would get it checked out first before having sexual relations with someone, That way it will save you any heartache along the line and also its best to get it sorted for yourself so that you no how to deal with it and how to approach the subject.

Dear Kerri,



Im not single, or have an std -- but I have a friend who is and does. She did not say one word to any man she dated, and did stuff with them that I couldn't even say -- then she found a guy who was more serious, they starting dating, were already in the sack, and a few weeks later she broke it to him - she had treatment, but that didnt mean it was gone. He left her immediatly and it crushed her world. But she really should have told him and shouldn't have been doing anything. To me that was very irresponsible on her behalf , and down right gross!

Now, I dont mean gross as in, a person is gross to have an std -- its how you handle it -- this girl didn't handle things right - i dont let her at my house because she is very unsantary and i have small children i have to watch out for. (Sad, but what else am i supposed to do, you cant tell her nothing)



As for you, its nice to see that you are open and honest about it. I guess you let them know, and if they don't want to be with you, then they wont. If they care about you enough to take you on completely then the more power to you. The key here is just plain honesty. Tell them the truth, if they have questions explain - if they let you down, pray and keep going. The reality is, you may not find anyone -- -- but what the Lord has in store for us is another story.



I wish you luck in your future love interests.
