Herpes goes to Monaco

  Today, after receiving a negative herpes test four months ago, my doctor called me and told me it was a false negative and I’ve been living with herpes for four months. I then had to tell everyone I’ve slept with about it, and worst of all my new boyfriend broke up with me. All in one day. FML

Since she might not know who she contracted it from, she most likely needs to tell people she slept with from previous to 4 months ago. However, anyone she has slept with within the past 4 months would have been a harder conversation because it was 100% guarantee that they slept with someone with an std, and some people can really react poorly to that information.

No I am curious because the lady said she had to tell everyone she slept with for the past 4 months.

After re-reading it, I am still confused if she only had to tell people from 4 months ago or if she had to tell people from prior to 4 months to me, I don’t know.

I’m not being judgmental, just the way I am reading it, it seems like she has slept with a lot of people in the past 4 months, the way it is written to me. If I am misreading it, sorry for the confusion.

And if she did, is that a problem? (And before you say “it clearly is since she got an STI,” she could have easily gotten that from her first partner and not known until now).

OP, sorry you got Herpes, but a lot of people have it, and while it is contagious, it's not that big of a deal, if you watch for outbreaks. sorry your BF broke up with you, that is not supportive of him, and you can use the support.
