I know couples who have gone years without transmitting by being honest with each other about when they are having outbreaks.
The person most likely to give you herpes is the person who doesn’t know they have it in the first place.
HSV-2 can also affect the oral/facial area, although less commonly.
So, since they can be caused by the same virus, the physical difference between Oral Herpes and Genital Herpes is ONLY the location. You can go out to public events, concerts, theatre, dances, social events, take classes, join a live or online club about one of your interests, volunteer for a local cause or charity…
Although HSV-2 is thought of as the “Genital” version, in fact, Genital Herpes can be caused by either HSV-1 or HSV-2.
Recent research has shown that about half of all new Genital Herpes cases are caused by HSV-1, which is usually associated with Oral Herpes.
Have the talk at the right moment and be completely honest with your current partner or with any new one.When an individual realizes that he or she has tested positive for Herpes, most people tend to think that it is an end to their dating life or sexual life. The person can continue to have a great dating life in spite of Herpes, but they have to make certain life changes.There are millions of people all over the world living with Herpes and having a healthy dating life as well.Whenever you enter a new relation, you should be informed about the status of your partner and should inform him or her about the same.If you and the partner have the same genital herpes, there is no problem.
