Herpes Diagnosis - ME?!
Diagnosis with herpes usually hits people like a ton of bricks. When your doctor or practitioner first uttered the words you probably thought to yourself, or exclaimed "what?!" Many emotions raced through your mind. How did this happen? Who gave this to me? Will I ever be able to date again? Will I ever be able to have SEX again? These feelings are totally normal. As time progresses things will get easier.

How Did This Happen?
Most people think sexually transmitted diseases will 'happen to someone else' or that using a condom is 100% foolproof in protecting against STD's. The most important thing to realize is that ANYONE who is sexually active has an extremely high likelihood that they will come into contact herpes. Genital herpes is very common. Many estimates have placed the lifetime likelihood of getting genital genital to be in the range of 20%. Think about that for a second. That is 1 out of every 5 people! It is almost impossible to be sexually active with more than one partner your entire life and avoid herpes. While most do not know they have the virus because it does not cause any visible symptoms, they are still able to transmit the virus to others. While this does sound alarming it is comforting to know that most people are exposed to herpes and for most it does not cause any harm. Informing your current or future dating partner armed with these statistics makes it a whole lot easier to swallow.
