So Im really distressed about having herpes. I have been having cold sores on my lips since I was a young child and since I have become sexually active in the past several months I have had the sores on my genitals as well. I am scared because although I did tell my partner about my first genital outbreak, today after having protected sex I noticed a single lesion on my genitals. I feel maad irresponsible for letting that happen without even knowing of the lesion and its even worse because I have had sex a few days ago for the first time in a while. I dont feel in control of my own body but I really want to do the right thing for my girlfriend so I think we should just not have direct sexual contact for a while. Even in doing this I feel like I may have already passed on the virus through direct contant even if I was wearing a jimmy hat when I entered her. Should I tell her that she needs to get tested? Is this something I should feel this guilty about? Do you think she would forgive me if I did infect her? PLEASE HELP ME

Using protection was the right thing. Telling her about your first genital outbreak was the right thing. No one can tell you whether you passed it. If she already knows that you had one outbreak it may be easier to tell her you had an unexpected episode. For the future you just have to keep yourself very clean and be very mindful of what is going on down there.

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
