I am a 32 year old woman who is married to a 33 year old man with GH. I remember the day he told me, he was so afraid I was going to walk right out on him! I understand why some people can't deal, but it is truly not the end of the world! My husband and I have a wonderful and healthy sex life, but we are very careful and never have sex when he even feels like an outbreak is coming on. Because of that, I have NOT contracted it. If I do, I know that it will be okay, because my husband loves me no matter what. Thank you for the helpful hints. Valtrex gets a little expensive, even with insurance! But, for those of you who feel like life will never be the same, I promise you it does get better. My husband found out he had GH on his 21st birthday! We have been together for almost 8 years, and I still do not have it. We don't use condoms, since I'm on the pill. But, we abstain from sex any time he finds even the tiniest red bump, just in case. I hope this will help some of you to know that there are people out there who will love you no matter what. Herpes is NOT a dealbreaker, unless you're an uneducated jerk!
