Just joined but not new to H....

Recommended Posts


Reaching out for support after 27 years in a marriage where we both have H. Now separated, I have gone head first into learning more because I need to know. Did IGG (confirms HSV 2 positive, HSV 1 negative) and have started acyclovir suppression (I have less than 2-3 ob per year, if that).

Really stressing over "the talk". Trying to stay positive.

Welcome to the site!

I have given the 'talk' many times and have NEVER been rejected. HOW you give the talk is almost as important as what you say. If you treat it as no big deal they may too.

I always start out by asking them if they have ever had a cold sore. No one thinks cold sores are bad things and most everyone has had one. Then I say I get cold sores, but not on my face. I make sure they know what causes cold sores and tell them if they do not.

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

Good luck!
