HPV, Herpes and dating for older adults: Advice Needed.
avatar
NAP51DM posted:
I'm a heterosexual male, 61. Was diagnosed in January, 2013 with HPV - genital wars. I just met a wonderful woman, also 61, who has tested positive for genital herpes. I feel that the relationship could become intimate. However, I don't want to become infected with genital herpes and I don't want to infect her with genital warts. Should I break off this relationship now? Is abstinence the only answer? I am so totally confused and nervous over these issues of STD's. I'm glad that we were honest with each other before becoming intimate, but I need advice from a health care professional on this matter. Please advise.
