First things first. Does your partner know about your diagnosis? if not they should know, then you can both get your partner tested. if he doesnt have it, then it should be ok but i would still advise condoms, tho herpes is usually only transmitable during an outbreak of the sores, but i dont think you will want to have sex during that time. speak with your doctor about medication and ways to relieve your symptoms when you have an outbreak.

Best of luck and if you want to talk then feel free to message me x
