I only saw two

When I was diagnosed about 14 years ago it was at Kaiser and I saw a male gynecologist. Then, when I decided to get Valtrex, I saw a female nurse practitioner who works with a gynecologist. Usually, you see a gynecologist if you are female and the gender of the doctor is up to you depending on how you feel about it.

Most of us do not need to see any kind of a doctor regularly for this. For most of us, the main time we see a doctor is diagnosis. If you have not yet seen a doctor, why are you sure you have herpes? What's been your experience with medical care so far regarding this?

well, I've found that most dr's do not know very much about herpes in general. So you just have to find someone who you are comfortable with. I'm more comfortable with a female dr, personally, because I have it genitally.

For the most part, however, I agree that no treatment is really needed outside inital diagnoisis unless you want someone to perscribe more meds.

I'm toying with the idea of seeing a naturopath to discuss some options outside of anti-virals.

      Have sex  with at least one of you wearing clothes + a condom  next time, if you really want to protect him.

      All negative, Except for hepatitis B which is something you're vaccinated (They give you antibodies) against in the military. Before, I go through the trouble of re cropping another damn picture for you. I'd like to ask what your response will be if I show you the results and they're all negative?

      Universities receive most of their  funding from Pharma companies. Scientific studies aren't cheap, Pharmaceutical companies aren't going to fund research on food supplements when there's no pay off for them. It's naive to  think big businesses would fund research that'd directly decrease profit.  Then there's the possibility of the pharmaceutical companies bribing the government agencies from genuine health research, to keep themselves in business. https://thevaccinereaction.org/2018/04/big-pharma-pays-universities-for-most-medical-research-in-u-s-today/   Also, No one outside of the research community has the resources/contacts to prove they're cured. Even if they scored a negative on a western blot test/IGg, scrutinizers would just claim the virus was dormant or they never had it at all. Other than blood test, There is no easily accessible method to determine whether or not the virus is completely eradicated from your body.
