I Promise, Life DOES Go On As Normal After Herpes-including Your Sex Life.

I am HSV 1 (most likely genital) + and I am with a HSV- man and we have a completely normal sex life! Lots of cuddling, lying naked together, touching….nothing has changed for me sex wise except 1) I take Valtrex and lysine every day and 2) I tell my potential partner about HSV and the risks associated with it before we have sex. Everything else is the same. I promise, life DOES go on as normal after herpes-including your sex life. It just takes some time to get used to it Come on by the chat room, you will find lots of supportive people there who can give you great advice!
