Listen to me ***Dont't tell him you MIGHT have an STD*** You go to a doctor and find out if you DO have an STD, if you do, then you tell him. Telling him you think you might have an STD is a huge mistake, there is no reason to say anything, if you don't know for sure.

Get tested. If you do have an STD you have a moral obligation to tell him. If you slept with someone while you were going out with him you should be truthful with him. If you slept with someone before him or during a period of breakup you don't have to tell him about it, but if you have an STD you should just sit him down and just tell him. If you fear he'll become violent, make sure a friend is near.

First, go to the doctor and find out if you do!! Don't put it off. If you do have one, you need to be a grown up and tell him immediately. If you think you're old enough to have sex, you have to be old enough to deal with the problems that go along with it. . And use condoms from now on. It's just too easy to ruin your life with disease and babies you don't want!! Good luck.

You should go to your dr. just as everyone has said. If it comes back that you do have an STD, you need to find out if its just a pill pr two to take it get rid of it. Some STD's can go away by a pill. If thats the case, and you haven't slept with your boy-friend, then theres nothing to really worry about. If its something that can come back over and over, but have time where its safe to have sex, you need to tell him. Like warts, they can come and go. With warts, its only time to time you have them, sometimes you can go months without an out break, but still needing to tell your bf that you have had this and you keep an eye out to make sure that they are gone, and that you dont have sex when you are having an out break. If its another STD, you need to find out everything you can on it, and go from there. Maybe pick up a booklet on the STD that you have, and when you tell him, you can say....." I have something to tell you, but its hard for me to find the right words to tell you. And Im telling you this cause I care so much about you. I went to the Dr. and found out that I have ________. I know thatas a lot to take in, but I got something for you to read if you have any questions..... This should help you get started on it....

First off go and get tested. . General STD tests do not include HSV and HPV. Those are seperate. You must ask for them. HSV is a blood test and HPV is a pap smear.

I would offer you an answer, but I can think of nothig that needs to be said that was not already made clear by Joker, bnygirl, and shyNsassy. The three of them are absolutely right. Get tested, and be honest with him. Just think, if he had an STD, wouldn't you want him to be honest with you?. . Joker, bnygirl, shyNsassy...great answers you three.

how do you know if he was or was not the one who gave it to you, so might as well come clean and both of you go to the dr. together before it becomes worse
