How do i tell him I have chlamydia?

Ive been seeing this guy for a while now and we have unprotected sex.

Ive only had unprotected sex once before him and that was my ex. Before I had sex with my ex I made him get tested for everything.

I had my std tests the other week and i am positive for chlamydia. I dont think it was my ex unless he cheated on me... but how do I explain this to John in the nicest way. I really dont want to blame him nor do I want him angry at me.

I think we should both take responsibility for this as we both decided not to use condoms.

any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Milky,

I am very sorry you are faced with this situation. However, Chlamydia is treatable and will have a cure with treatment. All "what if's" aside, at this point it is important for you to tell your current boyfriend just as it is. No story, no debating-- just sit with him and tell him the facts. If you truly feel as though he may have gone outside the relationship and given you the Chlamydia, then ask. Remember that if you did not have it with your ex an you have only been with one guy after then that narrows it down to the culprit.

Again, this is a tough topic to discuss with your significant other but it needs to be approached in a timely fashion--I am glad you are being treated for it.

Best Wishes.
