I was diagnosed yesterday with genital herpes and feel completely lost I am in a 2 yr relationship neither of us have strayed where has this come from? Does this affect my sex life with my partner now? Should condoms always be worn? Even though my partner has no symptoms is it possible my partner has this too?? I really am at a loss here please help!!
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
