I don't know what to tell my doctor because I now distrust him. I never intended for this to be on my medical records. My doctor basically asked me questions like - "what is your relationship like with your husband". If he did not ask me that - I would not have gone into detail. I had just come from gyn and told them I wanted to have the hiv test - they were going to order it but I said it wasn't necessary because I was going to see my doctor and ask him for a complete blood work up and order that at the same time. My gyn never asked me probing questions.
I am afraid to talk to my doctor now because I feel he may use this against me. I have never had a situation where I felt I couldn't be honest with a doctor.
What kind of explanation can I give at this point to explain myself? My husband's risky behavior involves mainly drinking and driving. Not taking drugs via needle or visiting brothels. Someone who is stupid enough to drink and drive is stupid enough to sleep with someone, especially since we were going through a rough time.
The sad part is the thing that made me worried about STDs from my husband is I would sometimes feel a burning sensation in my lower stomach. I just found out 2 days ago that the burning sensation was caused by fibroids. (It is so large my doctor recommended I consider a hysterectomy).
How in the world do I explain this on paper as a rebuttal to my medical records? I am afraid that anything I say will be used against me.
okay, I see your point.
Anyone who sleeps with someone without the use of the condo is engaging is "sexually risky behavior". That includes people who are married. Many persons who are married don't use a condom. They assume their partners are not cheating. But as we know (Arnold Schwartzenegger) men can sometimes blind-side their wives (it goes the other way around too). I have no proof that my husband was cheating. I have no proof that if he slept with someone else he didn't use a condom. I just have proof that he drinks.
I think the doctor choose the strongest words possible - it even implies (because he uses plural) that I am sleeping with several people who could be HIV infected.
My doctor wrote: "Sexually active with persons at risk for HIV-related disease"
