MS and dating someone with genital herpes

An_253516 posted:
I was diagnosed with ms about 5 years ago and take copaxone for it. I've been doing well (knock on wood) and haven't had a relapse since I was first diagnosed. I've started dating someone that informed me that she's got genital herpes and I'm just wondering if anyone out there has experienced something similar. To be honest it scares the crap out of me knowing that I've got one problem and may now need to worry about possibly getting another. I know condoms are one way to help prevent the spread but it could still be possible to get even with the use of a condom. Anyone got any words of wisdom for me?
Thanks
