A Story of Infidelity and Chlamydia
This is a story of a close friend and one night that would change the rest of his and our lives. His name was MMMM; he had always been the popular kid in our high school. He was the star quarterback for our senior football team; coming from wealthy parents, he drove the hottest muscle car, and always had the hottest girls chasing him. Even in college, after we had all settled down from the partying and drinking, he continued without skipping a beat. It wouldn’t be until one night, that all of that would change.
MMM had finally met a girl that he really liked. They ended up in serious relationship going on two years. She was a good, conservative girl that didn’t drink or party much, and mainly kept to herself. His persistent, flirtatious nature had finally won her over. She was soon to graduate, but MMM still had a year or two left. The sad part was he would still go back to bars to mingle with other women. He would tell me of his one-night stands all the time. I always felt bad for his girlfriend, as she did not deserve this. MMMM always said, “I’m just getting it out of my system, before I get married.” As he got closer to graduating, more talks of marriage would come about. .
Spring break week had come; all the guys had decided to go out and have a crazy night down on the strip. We went from bar to bar, having a good old time just like back in the day. MMM had found this incredibly gorgeous girl at one of the bars. By this time, we were quite intoxicated, and apparently so was this girl.

About six months later, MMM calls me with a frightened, hesitant voice. He wants to meet up to talk. The following day I meet him at his house. He has an unusually pale face, and the looks of worry written all over him. He’s pacing back and forth as he’s trying to get the words out. He finally tells me, there is something wrong with him and that he must tell someone. He said he had been experiencing an intense burning and unusual discharges from his penis for a few weeks now. He went to the doctor and ordered a full analysis of his urine and blood as he had suspected an STD. The results had come back positive for Chlamydia. What was freaking MMMMo out the most was the fact that his now fiancé might of acquired the tiny bacterium, Chlamydia trachomatis from him. The anguish in his face is one I will never forget. We went online and started doing some research on the bacterial infection. I was asking him questions about his last unprotected encounter aside from his girlfriend and how long ago, what other symptoms he was experiencing. We went online to get more information on the subject. He had told me his girlfriend had been experiencing weird abdominal pains and occasional bleeding lately. She did not think of even being tested for...
