That was what I was thinking as well. My doctor told me not to have sex until my results from my 2nd test come out to confirm I am not infected anymore. But my boyfriend's doctor told him that he can have sex anytime just to use a condom! I do not agree with that, he should not have sex like me- 4 weeks!
Yes, I did tell to my doctor that I want other tests as well, but I think she took a sample only for HIV and syphilis. Not sure about the herpes, but I'll ask her when I go for my next visit. And my bf is not in the same country, we have a LDR, so I suppose they treat people differently in France and keep saying they can have sex while infected, which is just ridiculous. Anyway, I told him to go and have all other tests, including a test again for these infections, to prove he's ok.
