You get STD's from something that came in contact with the genitals of a person who has it (also some are possible to get from the mouth).

I say someTHING becuz it can be a body part, or a toy.

I dont want to accuse anyone of lying, but i agree with the posters who said to go thru your treatments together. Be sure to take ALL the medication, and afterwards - use condoms!!

You DO NOT want to keep getting these diseases. I worked in a clinic.

There is a reason it's called "sexually transmitted diseases" and your partner is obviously not being faithfull no matter what he says. I find it funny that you would trust the word of your partner who says he isn't cheating and then say "doctors" don't always know everything!

You can't get pregnant from a toilet seat either.

And "loving" yourself makes you go blind.

Denial aint just a river in Egypt. Dump him, honey. Pronto. OF COURSE he is screwing around ! And there is no cure for Herpes, HIV, and HPV, all of which are prevalent. Matter of fact, I hope you havent been infected with any of the HPV viruses, which are currently rampant, some cause genital warts, and some are much more serious, and cause cancer. He obviously did not think enough of you to at least wear protection. He needs to go. You need regular pap smears to detect HPV infection.
Remember, when you sleep with someone, you are sleeping with everyone they have ever slept with !!!

STD's completely baffle me and I am convinced there is another way to get them besides just sex. 6 months ago I was diagnosed with chlamydia. My boyfriend and I both got treated and re-tested. Both came back negative.

I have been diagnosed again now with chlamydia and gonorrhea. I have been faithful and I believe he also has. Yes he could have cheated on me but I see him everyday. I essentially "live with him" even though I have my own place. If he IS cheating then it's during the 2 hour period where he is home from work alone in the house and I'm still @ work.

He also could have been lying and said his test came back negative but again I do not think he is lying.

My question is...though not proven, does anyone feel there is another way to catch std's besdies intercourse? I have been reading up on this and I find many stories like mine. I feel doctors don't know as much as they think they do and just because another way hasn't been proven doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

I haven't told my boyf about my re-infection yet and I know I need to but right now I feel there are too many variables for me to chalk it up to him cheating...false test results exist...as well as the fact that the dr who test me was a nurse practitioner not a real doctor. I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on how they feel.

Thanks! Insight is appreciated.
Yes you can get it from other contact as already mentioned. Maybe you had it and did not know it before even getting together. STDs don't always make you sick right away if at all. I would retest. But married men cheat on their wives all the time. I would keep track of this guy for at least a year so you know he did not give you HIV/AIDS. If he did that you can take him to court for it.

I do think its a pretty safe bet that he is running around. Unless you have a roommate that gets in any of your adult toys, or uses your clothing/towels/washcloths.
