Dating a person with genital herpes

This is where I feel a little concerned, and not from a coaching or therapy perspective (that has to do with helping you find a more supportive outlook), but from a physical health standpoint.I've conferred with my partner Todd (who is a physician) and I've read (as I'm sure you have) numerous websites about the typical symptoms of herpes.

How can I do to someone what someone else has done to me? All I wish is that there is something you can say, that can give me a glimmer of hope for the future. My heart goes out to you with every ounce of love, compassion and caring that I have. And this statistic only includes the people who are aware that they have the virus. Just because you have herpes does not mean you are "dirty" or "damaged goods."As you may already know the Herpes virus comes in two different strains HSV1 (oral) and HSV2 (genital).

On the other hand, you might notice symptoms within a few days to a couple of weeks after the initial contact.

Or you might not have an initial outbreak of symptoms until months or even years after becoming infected.

Dear Colette, my question is a bit "heavy" and I hope you are willing to help me with it, because it is totally messing with my body, my heart, my head, with my confidence, with my ability to believe that it's possible for anyone to ever love me again, or ever want to risk being with me because of the physical and psychological impact.

I wish it weren't true, but I have contracted the virus for genital herpes.

I know that makes little difference to the reality of your situation -- that it changes nothing -- but in some way, I hope you can feel the huge hug I am giving you right now. According to "Most people with genital herpes have infrequent, mild, or no noticeable symptoms, and 90 per cent of them are totally unaware that they even have it." And that, according to is because "surprisingly, most doctors do NOT include a blood test for herpes even when they are testing their patients for other common STDs."So, even if you and your partner wait to be tested before having sex -- if you haven't asked for the specific herpes blood test -- there is STILL the risk that one or both of you have the HSV1 or HSV2 virus and don't know it. Statistically 60-80 per cent of adults carry the HSV1 virus (in the form of cold sores) whereas 14-20 per cent carry the HS2 virus on the genitals.

According to Dating With (DWH.org) about 45-60 million Americans have genital herpes. According to DWH.org: HSV1 has become the cause of about 30 per cent of new genital herpes infections -- usually spread via oral sex.

I have many reasons for engaging in this kind of relationship (a very long story) but believe me, it's not my long term choice.

I want an exclusive and totally loving relationship with a man who adores me and I him.

When symptoms occur soon after a person is infected, they tend to be severe.

They may start as small blisters that eventually break open and produce raw, painful sores that scab and heal over within a few weeks.
