My Diagnosis Of Hpv
I went in for my yearly pap and was diagnosed with HPV in December. I received the information by a phone call from the nurse, who was a little impatient with all the questions I had. I've since done numerous searches online to learn about it. I'm struggling with dealing with it because I feel as though half my life is over. A door has been closed that I can never re-open. The guy I was dating and sleeping with at the time that I found out told me it wasn't that big of a deal and I shouldn't worry about it. We broke up that same day. I've been out on dates since but I don't know how or when to explain my situation to someone new. I'm afraid I'll never find someone that will love me after finding out that I have HPV. I've found an online dating site that's specifically for people with STDs. I not sure that is the way to go as there are basically two types of HPV....one that causes genital warts and one that causes some types of cancer...and both are lumped in together on the site. I'm 30 years old and still want to get married and have a family. I don't know how or if that will ever happen.
