Just try to remember that dating was a little nerve-wracking before, too. People without herpes get rejected, get dumped for stupid reasons, and have bad relationships. It's just the way things go - and herpes is really just another part of it. Many people have this virus, and many more are understanding. I hope that you meet good people and have a positive dating experience! Good luck!

Hey Jenkins. . . . I have had to tell 2 people thus far. One took it very well, didn't mind at all and even reassured me multiple times that it is okay! The other guy wasn't educated at all on herpes and therefore reacted a bit differently. At first he was okay but then told me that he still wasn't comfortable with it. That was fine with me! All I asked is that he be honest. I read (I think on this site a while back) that having herpes can be a positive. . . as it forces you to get to know a person before moving your relationship to the next step. This is so true and I view it as a pro!!!

      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
