Advice dating girlfriend love herpes dating
My girlfriend that I love very much just found out that she has herpes. Have any of you been with someone infected with something like Herpes? Doctors will generally allow anybody to come into the exam room w/ permission of the patient.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.
HSV can be passed on when one person has the herpes virus present on the skin and another person makes direct skin-to-skin contact with live herpes virus.And I want to be as supportive and caring as possible. Which likely means that while she is a carrier, she will rarely have any breakouts. And when I do, it's only a cold sore on one corner of my mouth for about 5 days. I've read online that passing from female to male is already a much lower risk, as the virus has to pass through the skin, and that's easier in the more sensitive areas of a woman than in a man.And, I am aware that there is no way to prevent myself from getting infected, and it is a risk I'm prepared to take, but I would still like to minimize it. Does anyone take Valtrex regularly and does it change your running at all? Which greatly reduces her transmitting the virus to you. And it seems that if she takes anti-viral meds and if we abstain during an outbreak, then the risks go down a lot. As far as I can figure if I want to try and stay with her, perhaps just suggesting we don't have sex while I sort through this is a good approach. Taking the risk of contracting it (assuming I haven't already) is a big risk even if statistically small as women I'd date in the future I'd obviously have to tell assuming I tested positive.
I know this is a running forum, but, I was just looking for some advice from anyone, and this is a nice, anonymous setting. I did some looking on Google, and it seems like there are ways to manage this disease, and to have a long lasting monogamous relationship with someone and not spread the virus.
I think a bigger thing may be that she is depressed.
