New here and like everyone else I need some advice please.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I recently met someone who has herpes. I don't have it but like many others I am sure; would prefer not to have it. Question is I really like this guy and I am wondering what are the risks of me getting it from him? How can one protect themselves? Condoms all of your life when being intimate?

I am really uncertain about what is accurate and what is being projected because it's 'Herpes'. If I terminate this relationship with him, I'd feel like I'd be losing out on some great person; and honestly I am not a person who judges another person on their 'appearances', 'creed', 'religion', 'disability' and etc but the thought of playing russian roulette with someone who has herpes is somewhat scary.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks :)

You answered your own question...

I would be lying if I said you wouldn't be taking a risk... but you could be taking that same risk with someone else who just isn't honest about what he has,....

Thanks :).

I must say that I'm glad there's a board like this; lots of information to read as well as reading other folk's experiences was greatly appreciated.

Today I feel less worried and have decided to take it a day at a time...

Thanks again!

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
