    ‘They were all because he was cheating,’ she added.  

    Abbie said she wasn’t mad at her ex for putting her health at risk, but was annoyed because he’d been caught ‘lying’.

    ‘I’m still not mad he gave me STIs; I was mad because I’ve caught you f***ing lying,’ she told podcast host Jana Hocking.

    She said catching an STI was ‘not ideal’ but noted they are easily treated with a ‘shot in the bum’ for gonorrhoea and ‘antibiotics for chlamydia’.

    An STI is an infection passed from one person to another through sexual contact. 

    Examples of STIs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV), syphilis and HIV.

    Abbie previously spoke to Kyle and Jackie O about her chlamydia diagnosis. 

    ‘I think there’s a lot of shame about STIs in general. I just want to break down the stigma,’ she told hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson.

    ‘I get tested regularly, because you can get chlamydia even when using a condom… or herpes through skin to skin contact. I haven’t had that [herpes] though.’ 

    Not a big deal: She also said catching an STI was'not ideal' but noted they are easily treated with a'shot in the bum' for gonorrhoea and'antibiotics for chlamydia'

    Abbie has spoken openly about her sexual history on her podcast It’s A Lot, and last year revealed she’d slept with more than 50 people.

    ‘When it comes to self slut-shaming, this is something that I still struggle with a lot. I have had STIs in the past,’ she said.

    ‘I used to have a list of people that I’d slept with. When I stopped counting it was like 50.’

    Sexually transmitted infections 

    What is an STI? 

    A Sexually Transmitted Infection, often referred to a STI, is an infection passed from one person to another through sexual contact.   

    Examples of STIs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV), syphilis, and HIV. 

    Are they dangerous?  

    While bacterial STIs are usually curable, they can cause significant health complications if left untreated. 

    For example, some STIs can damage men and women’s reproductive systems. 

    Should you tell someone if you have an STI?  

    In most Australian states, if you have certain STIs, you are legally obliged to inform your sexual partner/s.   

    In NSW, a person who has an STI and fails to take ‘reasonable precautions’ against spreading the STI can face up to 6 months in prison and/or an $11,000 fine.
