Herpes Diagnosis – Just Diagnosed with Herpes? It’s Ok – STD Podcast

Anonymous asks about a herpes diagnosis: “Jenelle, how does someone accept having an incurable infection like this? It has been about a month since I have known, and I have been nothing but depressed. I have barely been able to get out of bed most days, and I have quiet often thought about suicide. I just want my old life back. I feel like I can’t tell anyone about this, and I don’t know how I will be able to find someone who is accepting of this condition. I always assumed I would get married and have kids, and this just puts such a roadblock in front of all of that, and I am worried I will never have another relationship or sex ever again. I am going through my second outbreak, and I am just concerned I will always have this reoccur, though I have read some people stop getting outbreaks after a while. I just want to go back to enjoying life how I was, but I am not sure how to get there. I feel like I had my life setup so well to be pretty happy and carefree, and I ruined it by making one stupid decision.” What to Expect When You’re Expecting…a Podcast In an effort to cater to short attention-spans (mainly, my own), we keep these podcasts between 5 and 15 minutes in length.

HPV Statistics – Why Everyone Has Had an STD (HPV) – STD Podcast

Before you get your undies in a wad, we know that everyone hasn’t had an STD, but because the vast majority of all sexually active people have, we feel like it might as well be everyone. That’s what we’re talking about today – why the majority of all sexually active people will have HPV at some point in their lives. And since that’s only one of 30+ STIs or STDs, it’s highly likely that most everyone you know will have an STD. So, you’re not alone with your STI, if you have one now or if you have a long-term infection. It’s just that no one talks about it, so you feel alone.

Disclosing HSV (or any other STD) – Should I Tell People I Have an STD – STD Podcast

We’re back for another installment of the STD podcast, hosted by The STD Project’s STD+ Founder, Jenelle Marie Pierce. Today, we’re talking about disclosing HSV (or any other STD) and whether or not you should tell people that you have an STD.

In the meantime, we’re so happy you could join us for a few minutes out of your busy day to listen as we answer your frequently asked questions about STDs and living with an STD.

Herpes No Condom – On Sex without Condoms- STD Podcast

Welcome back to The STD Project’s STD Podcast! Do you remember our podcast from a few years ago? Probably not. I don’t really either. It’s been a long time. So let’s start again by talking about Herpes No Condom or Sex without a Condom… Are you excited? We are. This is a question we receive all of the time. Literally, all of the time. And I get it. You’re worried now that you have a long-term STI that you have to wear condoms for the rest of your life. That’s such a miserable idea – not condoms – but that once you contract an infection, which is pretty much inevitable anyways, you have to be sequestered to a certain type of protected sex forever and ever amen. Well, let us be the first to tell you, that’s not necessarily necessary.

Safer Sex Myths – STD Prevention – Happy Hump Day Podcasts

It’s STD Awareness Month – Every Month! Well, not really, but we think it should be! During STD Awareness Month, this past April, we began doing research on all of the myths surrounding STDs. What we originally thought would last through the month has blossomed into a much larger series, because there were so many misconceptions out there, we didn’t want to exclude any of them. As such, we’ve decided to continue our myth busting series, even though it’s no longer STD Awareness Month ‘officially’. We’ve dubbed it: ‘So True, So False!’, because we think we’re as cool as E!, of course, and, because promoting awareness, education, and acceptance doesn’t always have to be super-serious. Really, though, these myths often perpetuate big problems: they keep people from getting tested, talking to partners, practicing safer sex, and all around being conscientious about their sexual health.So, this
