So at the beginning of the year I decided to pull the plug on my relationship. She was incredibly toxic, manipulative and I had a pretty clear idea that she wasn’t going to change and there was a 90% chance she was a cheater (like all the warning signs were there and the guy was straight up terrified whenever I was around).
So after a messy fight and telling some quite nasty truths to her face that maybe didn’t need to be said, but felt good after tolerating her abuse for a few months I cut her off. I was unfamiliar with such ugly breakups at the time so I figured I’d try to rebound as a way to get her out of my head. I had numerous casual hookups earlier this year and I thought I wouldn’t have any problems as I wrapped my willy and literally never finished at any time.
Well one of the hookups explained to me that she was on the pill and that she was clean, well I was dumb enough to take her word for it and go in without protection, and boy was that a mistake. 2 weeks later I was getting really itchy and it kind of felt like I had a UTI as well.
To be on the safe side, I went and got myself checked. 100% confident I was clear and it was just my skin condition playing up (both of those symptoms often present themselves but were never anything that was actually harmful) and a week later I was told I had Chlamydia. Fucking legit this chapter of my life played out like RomanGladiator was its architect smh.
Fortunately the treatment is simple and I’m clean now, but I literally never thought I would get myself into that situation.
TL;DR: use protection or get slapped with the consequences.
