Personal Injury and emotional distress caused by former friend. This person lured me into a sexual relationship using my weakened state of mind (I suffer from depression). The sexual and friendship ended badly and I ended up having "female issues" due to the encounters. I now have a 1003 urgent care bill, had to take anti bacterial medications and my emotional state is all over the map.
It depends on the nature of the "female issues" and the ability or willingness of your Doctor to testify as to a causal relationship between negligent or intentional conduct on the part of your former partner and your current medical problem. For example, transmitting an STD your former partner was aware of and failed to tell you about would probably be actionable. Unforeseen collateral consequences from consensual conduct would likely not be. Dealing with a lawsuit isn't likely to have calming effect on your emotional state either. Discuss the details confidentially with a personal injury lawyer.

Your damages don't amount to enough to warrant litigation. I encourage you to learn from this and move on.
NOTE: The use of the Internet for communications with the firm or this attorney will not establish an attorney-client relationship and messages containing confidential or time-sensitive information should not be sent.
Can you establish in court that this person had an STD that he knew about and passed on to you without telling you about it? Do you want to go through trying to establish that in court? If so, then you might have a claim.
If your "female issues" were not passed to you by your partner in a way in which you can prove that he knew of and concealed the risk, you don't have a case.
