Boyfriends afraid of getting herpes

Recommended Posts


My boyfriend and i have been together for four months and i told him i hd herpes about two days later that i had oral herpes by sharing a drink.i remember crying because it was a scary thing he could either say never mind i dont want to be with you or okay its fine.luckily he says its okay but yesterday i broke out for the first time with him and hes been freakng out thinking he'll get it.honestly it make me wonder he doesnt deserve to worry biut this.he should be able to do things with someone and not think teice.he says he'll love me no matter what and not to worry.i really don't want him to recieve because of me.im confused if he got it id blame myself so much!!

Maybe he needs to grow up a little bit. I realize you're both young so maybe lack of maturity on his part is understandable, but eventually he has to realize that he's the exception to the norm. Most people already have oral herpes. If he doesn't already have it, chances are that he will sometime down the road. I suggest pointing him to this website so he can educate himself that it's just a manageable skin condition, nothing more.

Maybe he will smarten up and see past the stigma and paranoia surrounding herpes infections, get tested, and invest into the relationship rather than concerning himself with fear. There's nothing wrong with you. You look great, you have a good heart, and usually when you have the second characteristic everything else fills in and you end up being a great partner.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
