Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear about your situation.
Are you asking about legal options? Are you planning to file for divorce? Or did you mean to direct this to a relationship expert?

Thank you.
Consent to engage in sexual activity is NOT consent to contract an STD. A person who is aware that they have an STD has an obligation to disclose that information to potential partners before they proceed. That means that there could be a a cause of action for battery against her.
The statute of limitations is two years from the date she gave you the disease or one year after you found out about it. If you engaged in sexual activity after finding out about it, then that could negate any cause of action against her for the lies.
A local litigation attorney may be able to help you with both a lawsuit for your injuries and filing for divorce.
