A: Regardless of why you were contacting her, it apparently was non-consensual. The better way to have handled it? You could have filed a police report. You could sue her civilly.

Can you fight the PPO? Be mindful you only have 14 days to object once served. From what you write, I can't say you'll prevail. Just because you have a reason to contact someone doesn't give you the right to keep doing so. You could subject yourself to criminal charges of stalking.

You say this woman gave you an STD. You've presumably confirmed you have an STD. What have you to gain by continuing to reach out to her? Further confirmation? Treat yourself and move on.
