Had the talk and it went well

Recommended Posts


I'll be honest, I've never been subtle or discreet. In fact I'm a bull in a china shop when it comes to delicate situations. Strangely though, things seemed to come together in such a way that telling my friend, who looks like may soon be more than a friend, that I have herpes was almost natural. He was joking about his bedroom issues and I laughed at him and told him "at least your man bits look normal 365." Which led to him asking which led to my answer and him doing the equivalent of shrugging it off like no big deal and telling me I'm still attractive. Long story short, attraction was expressed on both parts. Good news is that he lives out of town but is now coming down to see me next weekend.

I did tell him that he should look more into the h a little more before just shrugging it off though. I have had extremely mild problems with it, but he could be completely different should all protective methods fail. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I do think him already being a friend and someone I trust helped a lot though.

Any suggestions on how to keep him negative besides the obvious: protection, no sex during an outbreak, etc?

Go to your doctor and ask him to prescribe you valtrex. There is plenty if information about valtrex on the web :) good luck! And you ARE worth it.

Thanks for the advice guys, I'll look into it before his next visit!

Things seems to be working out. It's been a long time since I've smiled just thinking about a boy. I'm exhausted when he's gone from all the late night phone calls. :)

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
