    just found out that i have herpes. I told my mate. He said that he went to get tested and his results came back negative. We have been sleeping together unprotected for nine months. Is that possible?

    This link says one take Acyclovir 800 twice a day for 2 days when it is in fact, 800 x 3 x 2

    that's a really old copy of it. is the link you want to be clicking on.
    Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
