I am feeling very lost and defeated. Last week I was disagnosed with HPV (gential warts). They are very small and I only have a few, but they have flipped my life upside down in only a matter of days. Currently I am using Aldara, and will go back to my gyno in 6 weeks. I am a 19 year old girl and all I've ever wanted was to love and to be loved. I have not had the best experience with any relationships.. I just seem to always pick the wrong ones. However, a month ago I met a guy that swept me off my feet. Things have been so perfect with him and I want to continue things with him but now I have HPV... what do I do. Did he give it to me? Will he leave me if I tell him? Do I tell him? Will I ever feel normal again? So many questions have been racing in my head and many, many sleepless nights and tears have been shed. I have a constant anxiety over me and I really don't know where I go from here. With today's generation and with my past experiences from men, I feel like if I don't have sex with him, he will leave me or get bored. Someone please help me, I'm desperate for any advice. This was supposed to be a good summer.. and I feel like I have finally found someone who makes me happy and genuinely cares about me, I don't want to lose that.

If you are afraid to lose him then that is not a healthy relationship. Yes, you need to be honest. If he only wants you for sex, that is not love.al anon and codependency groups will help you with boundary issues. Learn to expect respect and honesty from your partners. Break the cycle of being taken advantage of and used. Very sorry for your suffering.

Well we aren't in a relationship yet. We are just getting to know each other but it's going really well! I just hate that I have this big factor now dictating the future of me and him.:( Thank you!
