 need help. I've been dating this guy for a few months and we have been getting along really well. I told him I was newly diagnosed HSV and he was initially accepting. But now he's Facebook messaged me saying it's fucked, I should have told him earlier (I told him date 5), and that a Nurse has told him you'd have to be stupid to sleep with someone with Herpes and he's now believing what she is saying. I'm completely broken.

Send him as much information as you can and tell him if he really wants to be with you then read it,you might also find every non-risky sexual activity you two can do together and make a list tell him,how does this sound to you.We are asking people to take a risk on us,there is no doubt about it and we cannot say for sure 100 percent they will not get it .The nurse was 100 percent unprofessional and should have given him info to make an educated choice.

Ask him if he has ever had mono, chicken pox or a cold sore, if he has then he is a Herpster too. 

Here are two links to send him that will educate him about the risk he will face.  Unfortunately he is relying on a misinformed medical professional.

If he doesn't come around to realize what he might lose, then it is his loss.

If he is angry with you because it took you till date 5 to tell him then what sort of person is this guy not very understanding although how long have you known each other for.  I would have to agree and ask him if he's ever had a cold sore before.

I work with a lot of nurses who have no clue. I just took a CPR renewel course with a nurse last night and questioned how she even received her license, she was that lost. The guy you're dating doesn't sound mature or well informed at all. You shouldn't have to sell yourself to someone to have sex with them. Be open and honest and the right person will accept you, for you.

      Another company looking to create a vaccine.  http://www.bluewillow.com/bluewillow-biologics-awarded-patent-for-intranasal-genital-herpes-vaccine/ BlueWillow’s intranasal NanoVax platform elicits both mucosal and systemic immunity through its novel oil-in-water nanoemulsion (NE) adjuvant, offering a unique advantage to combat sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including genital herpes. The mucosal immunity elicited by intranasal NE vaccines provides critical protection against infections at the port of entry by which a pathogen enters the body. The intranasal NanoVax HSV vaccine has demonstrated safety and efficacy in both prophylactic and therapeutic animal models for genital herpes. In a prophylactic guinea pig study, the intranasal vaccine prevented genital herpes infection in 92 percent of animals vaccinated. Therapeutic study animals previously infected with genital herpes who received the BlueWillow vaccine reduced recurrent lesions and viral shedding by more than 50 percent compared to animals who received no treatment.

      Cas, This is sooooooo exciting I may need a diaper!  How bout you?  😊

      This is wonderful news!  Impressive dollars raised and the team is absolutely outstanding.  For those who have been dreaming of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on our side, consider your prayers answered.  William Jacobs and Betsy Herold from Einstein have “sounded” extremely confident all along.  While maybe not just “around the corner” this is amazingly exciting!   If there was ever a person that possibly could be a force in “fast tracking” could it be Mr. Bill Gates?  While it may seem “so far off”, for those of us having been infected for 20+ years or more, it is still music to our ears, and the  glass is always half full-without hope you have nothing.   Never forget this line from Shawshank Redemption:                                           “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies”.

      Discussion thread on this news here:

      This is pretty impressive for a number of reasons: Average funding for a series A in biotech is around ~$50M but the median is around ~$30M as of 2018 The takeaway then is the XVax is at the higher end of the spectrum suggesting (1) High investor interest, (2) XVax is thinking big A robust set of investors- good to see that there are multiple names here rather than 1-2. Again, suggests robust interest from investors Note that the anchor investor (i.e., the biggest) is Adjuvent who are backed by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, good to see that HSV continues to be of interest to them (my theory: due to the link with HIV and Alzheimer now)   Overall everyone should be cheering this news given the impressive results seen with animal models. Still remember this is going to be a multi year process- I would hope to see a phase I in 2020
