I have been diagnosed with genital herpes and I take flamavir for outbreaks. These outbreaks are about 3 months apart now and after a course of medication, the symptoms go away. I am afraid to date anyone and feel I am destined to a life alone because of this disease. I wouldn't want to give it to anyone else, not to mention it is embarrassing.
Will there ever be a cure for genital herpes? What can I do to prevent outbreaks?
How should I be managing this?
I would appreciate your response. Also, I am afraid of passing this on to anyone else, therefor, I have stopped dating and live a lonely life. I feel like I am in this alone and it is a
big, dark secret I must carry to my grave. Please help.
Thanking you in advance.
W. B.
