I haven’t had this, but I read your post and just wanted to give you some words of support. Hang in there. Wait and see what happens with treatment.

first, ((hugs)), I’m so sorry you are going through this.  It must be so difficult to receive this kind of unexpected message.  I don’t have any experience with having an STI, but it sounds like you have amazing support in your husband!  Try to stary as calm as you can before you go to the doctor and wait for the test results.  I’m sure this is very scary, but if this is something that will make it difficult in TTC, you at least know what the cause is and your doctor can properly treat you rather than spending time seraching for a cause.  Keep us updated and know that I am sending positive thoughts and prayers your way!

Try to stay away from Dr. Google, also! That never helped anyone who is “waiting” for results to come in. Worry after you know for certain, and plan accordingly.

I am so sorry. I can only imagine how hard this is. I have never had a STI, but I have had my share of poor partner selection (cheating exes) and have been tested for everything under the book. What my doctor told me was that when most doctors test, they do the full screening, so you should have known. Also, if you took antibiotics in the past, it might have killed it if you had it. Finally, the STD won’t cause infertility, it is the pelvic inflammatory disease that stems from it. Your doctor should have picked that up in paps. Please update us when you get results!

Also, a good friend from high school just announced she is pregnant, after 2 years of trying. She had PID from an STI in high school. It isn’t the end of the world.

@Ryansgirl:  I’m so sorry – I don’t know much about it, but what a blow to you guys! My best advice would be not to panic and wait until your test results come back.. and at least your ex had the decency to come forward & warn you guys once he knew. There are a lot of people out there who don’t. Good luck hon! x

Hoping you get good results back. Try to breathe until you see the doctor, easier said than done I know.  Good thoughts going your way.

@Ryansgirl:  I was diagnosed with mycoplasma, Dr google says its the same thing.  1 dose ofantibiotics cleared it up. I got pregnant the next cycle but had a chemical pg. My dr told me that it’s not necessarily an std- they’ve found it in kids who have never had sexual contact. My husband wasn’t prescribed anything.

They don’t test you for mycoplasma/ureaplasma in a standard std screen bc there a bunch  of types and no cost effective way to type them. Some are completely harMless. 

Also, it’s really scary to hear that you  it…but a treatable std that causes no lasting impact to your fertility is not that the end of the world. You will be fine. It could be much worse!
