Six years ago, my ex boyfriend found out he had gonorrhea, so I got tested because we had only unprotected sex. Yes, I know, it was stupid, but my results came out negative, so I thought I was fine. We had unprotected sex after he cleared up. Not directly after. We used condoms for some months, but I ended up giving it to him again. I got tested again and told Planned Parenthood my situation and they told me the test was negative and I wasn't positive for ANY STI's. I couldn't afford the medication even if they prescribed some for me. We ended up breaking up and I haven't had sex for 4 years until 2 years ago when I met my current boyfriend. We have unprotected sex and after a couple months he started getting the same symptoms my ex had. I've been tested every year twice a year for the last 6 years to make sure and they always come back negative. But each year I get another symptom of gonorrhea. I get UTI's at LEAST 3 times a year. Sometimes up to 7. I usually just drink water to make it go away.I have really bad discharge. And it hurts when I have sex. I don't have health insurance at the moment so I can't afford a hospital visit. Could I have had gonorrhea for 6 years?
