Today, I went to the doctor and found out that I am infertile. When I called my boyfriend of 2 years (whom I was hoping to have a future with) to talk to him about it, all he said was "So does this mean I don't have to wear a condom anymore?" FML

He was pretty insensitive if he knew you wanted to have kids. Although the no condom thing is good news.

He's just looking on the positive side

OP I dont think you are ovary acting.

I don't see how this is an FML.

He was pretty insensitive if he knew you wanted to have kids. Although the no condom thing is good news.

Sadly speaking, there are still STDs, cheaters and opportunities - you know....

I am so sorry for the bad news, about the fertility and that your boyfriend of to years is an insensitive jerk... AND still have people wear condoms, the last thing you want is an STD, such as HIV

Well, if neither of them has an STD and they're 100% loyal to each other, there is no chance of them getting an STD anyway. Only way one of them would get an STD is if one of them has sex with someone who had an STD then went and had sex with eachother

um unless they have an open relationship how are they going to get HIV or an STD?

If one cheats...

I'm sorry, but if my gf is infertile I am def not wearing condoms. But I'm clean, and faithful, as is she.

If one of them helps a bleeding person and the blood gets in a small cut or somehow their mouth one of them can get an std. it's unlikely but still

Yeah that is rather insensitive. Guys just don't understand how much that can actually hurt though. What's wrong, may I ask?

Haha #2 out are stupid and should feel stupid. epic fail for writing FIRST in the first place, but on top of that, NOT BEING FIRST.

um...#2 didn't write "first", he wrote "wonderful".

well either he's insensitive or trying to make you feel better?

He's just looking on the positive side

I can see how being infertile in itself is an FML but this scenario the OP described doesn't sound like one; she wants "a future" with this guy and it doesn't sound like he's gonna dump her for being infertile...

I know exactly what you mean. And us girls (yes speaking from a womans point of view here) need to remember that as much as we are emotional thinkers, men are logical thinkers. Which means that, essentially, if op actually knew her boyfriend, she would have expected an answer like that and still know that he loves her with all his heart.

^ Generalizing much?

I think she was hoping that they could have a serious conversation about her infertility and where they want to go from here. It does seem like her boyfriend is ok with it, which is good, but it's a subject that deserves to be considered with more depth and respect than just "Oh yay, no condoms!" Depending on the exact cause of her infertility there are a few different options they can pursue if being parents is important enough to them, but it is often difficult and expensive, and they should make sure they're on the same page before they go through with an engagement or a wedding.

#226 that's not generalization, it's science. According to actual SCIENCE, men and women think differently. And it's scientifically correct to say that WOMEN are the emotional thinkers.
