    Worried about HSV-2

    Hello all, allow me to bring you up to speed.

    I've been dating this girl for less than a month now, and before we had sex she informed she is positive for HSV-2. When she dropped that bombshell I was naturally devastated and scared and rather ignorant of the virus. I did as much research as possible to become informed.

    She is a really great girl and I care for her alot. Last night is the first time we've had sexual intercourse. She is on Acyclovir shes been taking it since last Saturday for " suppressive therapy". Last night I wore two condoms and myself took Acyclovir and washed myself with anti-bacterial soap. How soon would I start noticing any symptoms?
    I know I sound extremely paranoid. But It's better to be safe than sorry.

    ?Paranoid? Ya think?

    Stop using two condoms during intercourse; there is actually a greater chance of breakage (from friction) by using two of them.
