The absence of symptoms does not mean a person has not got genital herpes.Herpes simplex virus (HSV) most often shows up as small blisters or sores on either the mouth (cold sore or fever blisters) or the genitals.
There is suppressive therapy for people who do get outbreaks, but let me make it clear again if it has not been so yet: Your girlfriend has not been diagnosed with herpes. It causes no serious illness, and is usually and sometimes always asymptomatic.
Has anyone every been with someone when they were diagnosed?
Of course, she's worried about having children, but it seems even that has low risk of complications, mainly if an outbreak occurs during childbirth.
A guy that she dated a year ago texted her, and said that he just found out that he had it. I will not even consider breaking up this relationship. Do you think that a doctor would be willing to talk to both of us, and let us know what we can do together to make the infection easier for her, and also to talk about what my risks are and how to minimize them? She never had any symptoms, and only found out when an Ex contacted her and let her know that he tested positive.
I'm going to stick this thing out, and I will do what ever it takes to make this work. Does anyone know if the insurance could claim that this is an existing condition and not cover medication? I really love this woman, and I know that she also really loves me. If he hadn't contacted her, she would have had not have thought to get tested.
