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. :)

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
