One partner has it, the other doesn't

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone out here does not have herpes but their partner does and how it is going for you(especially if you are a girl and your male partner has it) HOw long have you been together? What precautions do you take? Does your partner have a lot of obs? Or can anyone share their story of not having herpes and then getting it from your partner and what that has been like? Thanks

I have been 5 - 6 weeks with a partner. He does not have it. I do. I have had 3 OB since then. Very tough and frustrating for me. And him. I told him about it early on. And he made his decision about it.

So far, no problem. I am always holding my breath. I am worried. Because it will be a betrayal of some sort if he catches it. It will be my fault, of course. And this puts me into wondering if I should be in the relationship or not.

Its tough.

The last boyfriend I had I was with for 3 years. We both have it, so it was never an issue.

being with someone who does not have it is an entirely different issue. (though he says he was with another girl who had it for 3 years and he never got it then either).

Its a day by day thing.

But I would suggest that both partners study up on it and make sure that they are both doing whatever they can to make sure to prevent it.

I hope this helps some.

      All I know is what the pipeline says. And it says that trials don't start until 2019/2020. How long they will run and whether they will be successful remains to be seen. Also remember that the start of trials depends on whether the animal studies are successful. And there are always delays even when things are going well from a medical standpoint. So don't get your hopes too high that the trials will start as they currently state. Their biologic is a functional cure at best, not a sterilizing cure. But I don't think there will be too many complaints about that. I thought you already new about Excision Bio and their work.

      It is possible, but id be getting a definitive test. Id get a swab and blood test for confirmation.

      This is not caused most probably by herpes. Suggest you need to see a doctor to pursue some other directions.

      You said that you hoped this would help someone. Well, today it helped me.  I've been broken too many times to count. Unlike that glow stick though we get broken over and over again sometimes. But if we allow ourselves to heal from the brokenness; we can light up this dark world.Thank you:)
