No offense but if you're dating someone who is in prison and you're thinking of killing yourself over a diagnosis of HSV, you need more professional mental help than this Internet board can provide.

Would you think of suicide simply because you develop cold sores around your mouth? Doubtful. This is simply another place on your body where outbreaks can occur.

How did they test you for genital herpes?

The only difference between genital herpes and oral herpes (cold sores) is the location on your body. It's not a fatal disease and I can't believe that you are willing to leave your child without a mother because of this skin condition. You could have had this for years prior to your b/f or he could have given it to you! FYI: I hope he plans on getting tested for everything once he's out before you sleep with him. He needs to be tested for HSV 2, if he has it then you have no worries.
