I gave "the talk" for the first time...

Recommended Posts


I just wanted to share my experience for the newbies out there.

I fell in love with someone. He is the most amazing man I've ever met. He also fell for me. I've never felt anything this strong.

It was time for me to tell. I was worried sick. Couldn't eat.

I finally started to tell him. It was terrible. Everything I planned to say, I just couldn't say. I clammed up. Couldn't look at him. Instead of the eloquent planned out speech, I blurted it out. This was the absolute hardest thing I've ever done and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. He got pretty quiet and I thought to myself that I'd lost him.


He said that he had it too!!!! I could not believe my ears!! My brain glazed over and I couldn't process what I was hearing. I wasn't going to lose him after all! And on top of it, now neither of us has to worry about infecting the other.

I'm deeply in love and having an amazing sex life. I never thought I would be in such bliss post herpes!

So hang in there... You never know what could happen!

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
