I would have rather gotten away with herpes than HPV because I now have complications with cervical cancer. Put it this way, the one you turn away because they may/may not have herpes, will be the reason why the next person u try to get involved with will be the one to burn you.

I guarantee there will be education about how its NOT a big deal, and how to stay healthy while living with it…. Oh, and to agree with Scott, the only reason i found out i had herpes was from a blood test. and when i say symptoms, i dont mean “sores” (as i have never had one yet!
all you need to do is be happy and you will be fine. I specifically asked to be screened for everything, and that’s what they found. ) i mean just tiredness and muscle pain in the legs…
Whoever wrote this headline is completely ignorant. Perhaps whoever wrote this headline (after looking in the mirror one day and saying ewww to yourself), you need to imagine 4 of your closest female friends. Now you need to realize that ONE OF THEM probably has herpes. Are you going to stop respecting her and loving her, basically thinking of her as “dirty” now? So , I’d keep my mouth shut if I were you, because those of us who are infected are SICK of hearing all the jokes, and nasty comments. the only reason i take the valtrex is to protect my partner… I am always honest, and have never had anyone turn me down or be rude to me because of it…
Instead of judging those who have herpes, we could get EDUCATED about it. the most common response i have gotten since dating after being diagnosed is “well, its not your fault, there was nothing you could have done differently, i would never leave you for something as dumb as that.” so for all you rude people out there, believe me, you can easily get it.
If you think you may have it, get tested as the treatments out there will provide you with a world of relief. The truth is though that anyone worth dating won’t back out because of something so small.
I didn’t back out on my gf when she told me…and it took 4 years and and a bit of carelessness on our part for me to get it.
Ill admit, I was partying a lot and slept with the wrong man. Yeah, herpes sucks, you get stressed out or sick and then you get even more sick when the virus comes out, but if anything, having it has taught me so many life lessons.
It has taught me not just to date anyone and be more careful with my body, who my friends are (I told of couple of my friends when I found out and some of them though it would be fun to tell everyone else, so I said goodbye to them and my real friends still loved me all the same) and it has taught me that any man that truly wants to be with you will say “I love you for everything you are” not “i love your body, but its too bad your diseased.” My sex life did not end, I have had a couple of partners and all of them were told before anything happened and they all said it doesnt matter, and none of them was given the “gift that keeps on giving.” My current boyfriend, soon to be husband, tells me everytime I get sick that he doesnt care if he gets it or not, he just wants to be with me. So no, herpes didnt destroy my life, it made me stronger and wiser.
Yes, I have herpes and because of those people that judge us I have been hiding and making excuses not to date cuz I am afraid to tell men.
Stupid, yes, but if you don’t have the virus then you have know idea how hard it is to tell that person you like you have herpes.
I wish someone could get the balls to talk about it publicly and not one of thoese silly commercials. When I was in high school I use to make fun of the Valtrex commercials, you know, they use to show people doing all this adventurous or exciting things like horseback riding, mountain climbing, canoeing, bike riding, whatever.
