My spouse was tested for STD’s and the results came back positive. I was tested and my results miraculously came back negative even though we engaged in sexual intimacy shortly after discovery. How do you deal with sexual intercourse without making the spouse feel dirty or like something is wrong with him? My spouse betrayed me but does not like to wear condoms. Is this issue going to create future problems, or do I just trust God to take care of me physically and do that which pleases my husband? He and his affair partner also engaged in oral sex, which is something my spouse enjoys, but it sickens me to participate in oral sex with him now that I know he and his affair partner engaged in oral sex. When I first asked him if they ever engaged in oral sex, he lied and said no. I asked him more than once and he lied to me at all times until recently. Could you please share any thoughts you may have in how to deal with this issue.

Std and Sex

After my husband disclosed to me that he had sex with hookers numerous times, I went to be tested and the results was positive for Herpes 1 and 2, and G. Warts. No cure, meds. for the rest of my life. I gave my H. oral sex and would wake up with a severe sore throat. I am sickened when I think I put his std infected P. in my mouth! I sometimes get a painful ulcer inside my mouth. Please protect yourself.
