Well I’m slowy comin to terms with havin herpes but can still get me down from time to time! Buts it’s def good to know that I’m not alone!! You have to try and not beat yourself up about it we all make mistakes!!!! Anyway it’s good to chat on here and talk to other ppl who have herpes!!! If anyone has any tips etc to help reduce it stop outbreaks!?!? I’ve been relatively lucky as I’ve only had 2 and they have been very mild!!! I still dread the day I meet someone and have to tell them I have herpes tho so if anyone can share stories on there experiences that would be great!!!!!x. As for girls I’m not sure if you have to be a little more careful – I believe it is passed on more easily from F to M than the other way round. In the event that you do have herpes simplex 2, there’s really not a whole lot you can do. Also, can you get the initial fever more than once if your body is ultra run down, or does that REALLY only happen the first time?posted by lorrer at 9:11 AM on May 6, 2005.

Thus, to avoid passing Herpes to a partner during sexual activities, additional precautions such as daily anti-viral medicine, condoms, dental dams, and even protective gloves may be necessary.
You can do several things to keep from spreading genital herpes:Consider sexual abstinence (not having sex until you’re in a committed relationship). Don’t have any kind of sex when you have herpes sores, itching or scabs. Most patients do experience a recurrence at some point. Your doctor will be able to tell if you have it simply by looking at the affected area.
