I'm a 38 year old male. Been living with GH for 8 years now. Not exactly sure how I got it, but I know it is very depressing when an OB occurs. Anyhow, I have managed to keep outbreaks to a minimum by using plenty of lubrication during intercourse, and trying to live a stress free life. Obviously, that is much easier said than done. I only have about 4 OB a year. It sucks because I do limit my sexual encounters to limit outbreaks. Anyhow, I just told my girlfriend of 2 yrs. about it last week. That was not a good experience. We spoke about the fact earlier on in the year that if an STD were to come along that we would deal with, and work with it. However, I have always been afraid to tell her for fear of losing a woman in which I love dearly. We are still together, and she has accepted the fact I have it, and that if she got it, she would deal with it. I am still fearful of giving it to her. She has had no signs of an obvious outbreak as of yet, but today I sit here with an OB trying to find relief. Just so happens I have some propolis in my stash of remedies, but have never thought to try it. I will do just that. I wish there were a cure for this. I am sure there is, as there is a cure for cancer. Pharma makes too much money off of prescriptions to even consider releasing one to the general public, so. Anyhow, thanks for all the tips guys.
