Still not ready...

Recommended Posts


So I was close to being intimate with someone but I can't. I need to tell him about my having hsv. I just haven't had much of a sex drive anymore. I'm sure once I tell him he will be understanding but at the same time I'm just not interested in sex right now. I'm sure this feeling I have will eventually subside..

Don't push yourself. If you are not ready, your not ready. Take a deep breath. You don't have to have sex with this guy if you don't want to right now. And if he is making you feel like you should than he is so not the guy for you. Move at your pace and never let anyone push you to move faster than you want. I get that you like him. But your post clearly staed that you are still not ready, so give yourself some time. Talk to him about it and sleep with him only when you are ready...and if that time isn't now, that is okay.

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
