If you have been recently diagnosed with genital herpes, you may be upset and confused and think your sex life is over.
I am so scared of telling my new partner, but am confused on the signs of an attack. I am having lots of anxiety about it and don't want to hurt him. Do not wait until you feel the relationship has turned the corner into being serious.
I am constantly thinking I have an outbreak coming. They usually prescribe Valtrex to people living with herpes. Its likely that is what your inclination is to do then perhaps youll be able to keep him because he is bonded to you. I would see this as you not being honest with me (if I was him).
When she was diagnosed with herpes almost three years ago, Whitney Carlson, 29, a social media editor in Chicago, had a similar reaction.
“I mostly thought, ‘I’m going to die alone, no one’s going to date me ever again,” she tells SELF.
I have had herpes for over 4 years now, but have not come to terms with it.
