    Sadly, there is a possibility I might have to

    leave my bf. I am HPV positive. I was told that if it comes back negative I'm in the clear. I am bracing myself for any kind of news. Doctors said that it's not something to worry about and life goes on. However I feel tons of guilt and shame. I feel as if I'm not worthy of...

    HPV and Pre Cancer. Dealing With It. Giving Others Support.

    I found out I had HPV shorty after my daughter was born when I called to schedule my appointment for my IUD.  The nurse told me that I had HPV and I called my mom in tears.  They scheduled a coloscopy and I had a friend go with me.  I lost my insurance before the...

    Diagnosed with with Genital Herpes in September.

    Slept with only two girls this year, went to the hospital regarding something last week, and was diagnosed with genital warts. They're small, I can't feel them, the fact they are visible means they're low risk non cancer causing. Maybe one day when I am ready to settle down...

    Yesterday...I noticed the warts.

    ..it's a VERY small cluster of raised flesh colored ones. Only had sex with one person, never had a STD, so of course, I did all the research. Crappy thing is that it's the weekend so no doctor's offices are open to ask questions and I am tooooooo nervous about this even though I...
