Thats it. She wants to go get tested wednesday afternoon. Simple enough, but I am absolutely terrified. I have had, as best as I can remember, 12 partners that have come and gone, and in most cases come back around, since I've been sexually active starting in 2001. I have been unprotected with many at one time or another and two of these were initially virgins but have reconnected since, negating that 'security' as it were. She, my girlfriend, started a birth control regiment two months/cycles ago, and should have been starting her third and finished her period. The medicine is YAZ and she and I both have read many stories about how it causes infections and complications for the first few months. She had both a UTI right before her first period on YAZ and a yeast infection before her second, both of which she was treated for and should be 'clear' of. She is still having discomfort in her....outer parts (it makes me uncomfortable to even type it) to the point where she is visably uncomfortable. I am her first sexual partner and she brought up the idea of us both getting tested, both for the overall reassurance and health of the relationship and to rule out any infection as a possibility of the cause of her discomfort, although I suspect the latter is more the case (and who am I to blame her?). She has told me my past number of partners sometimes bothers her. My issue here is that I am petrified. I have never really thought about getting tested before. She mentioned that her and her little BFF talked about my number of partners and she, her friend, also thought it was very high for my age (early 20's), although I never thought of it as being extraordinary. I have never had any symptoms of any infection, just the usual male scratch and tingle routine. After thinking and reading up on it, I know that I am at high risk for having HPV due to my number of partners. I just need people to talk about this to. I would never approach my brothers/parents on the issue even though they know my history. It is just not acceptable in my family or the circles they are in. I'm afraid of how I would react to the news that I did have something and my mind is constantly running out worst case scenarios. If I gave her something, I would never forgive myself and I dont know if I could deal with it. Thanks for taking the time to read this and I'll be reading your responses for advice.
