The first person I had sex with after my diagnoses was just over a year after I got it. I had told him about my herpes and that I didn’t really have many OBs. We started out using condoms, but after time stopped using them. We were together for about 4 years and I never passed it to him. If I was thinking I was going to have an OB we withheld, obviously I only took Acyclovir during my OBs and didn’t do any suppression meds, but I think I’m a lucky one.
