Once you have this, it never goes away. You should find as you grow older your outbreaks will come less often and be shorter in duration.

Make sure your wife gets tested. Even if she does have this she can have a normal delivery. If she does not have it, you may want to consider taking antivirals because they can help prevent transmission by 50%.

Come to the Chat Room, there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????

      Hey Folks. I have been taking Acyclovir 400MG 3 times a day orally since 1/17. It seems to have helped the burning, but the pain stills comes and goes. Should I continue to take the antivirals? Is it normal for a burning pain to last this long? I think I may continue to take the prescription until I am out of pills, but I am concerned that I am still in pain.
