For the record, my partners are one at a time. And I get tested after every new partner so that if I do have something I know exactly who it came from. I was celibate for 2 years before getting into the relationship I'm in now, and still have the same issues.
My point was, if I'm not sexual active for two years, then I have two strep free years, but if I decide to be with someone, I instantly have strep. Then another two nonsexual active/none strep throat years can go by, and then if I get into another relationship then BAM I have it again.
The number of partners I've had in the past isn't the point of the question, it's why do I always have this reaction.View Thread
