Did you feel "gross" and almost dirty when you were first told??? Saturday was the first time my BF and I DTD since I was given the news. And I couldn't help but feel like I was dirty and that he didn't want to touch m e!! Having gotten it from HPV makes me sick!!! Knowing that it is a form of an STD I am so mad at myself!!! I feel so dirty!!! I just feel like I could sit in a HOT shower for days to wash it all away...but it's not going anywhere......
I'm sorry you feel this way. Have you talked to dh about it? Remember that you never know where you picked it up...either you had it before dh or dh brought it to the table. It is a very common std.....
There is no reason to feel dirty about it. We all have pasts and HPV is like a cold...alot of people have it and most never know about it. If it wasn't common (and not dirty) then they would not have developed a vaccine for it.
As far as the guilt goes....that is normal as well. With my cancer I could have prevented it. I could have been more careful with the sun screen. It is my fault....but I also know that I still have to live my life and yes, there are days I don't put on sunscreen. You still need to dtd (come on...its generally fun)........
