This book is more than helpful, I have HSV2 diagnosed a year ago now, my boyfriend doesn't have it and we've read it together. This book has drawn us closer and we aren't as scared and as bad as it sounds my boyfriend has admitted that he wouldn't be angry at all if he got it, and doesn't understand why it has me down so much. Just a note This book is awesome!

How did you tell your boyfriend? Were you diagnosed before you met him? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a question regarding your book, in one part you said that you cant get HSV2 by kissing, but in other areas you seemed adamant in not getting it by kissing. I have HSV2 but practically every partner I had I also had oral sex with them, so now I'm worried. Does this mean I can also have HSV2 in my mouth, so even kissing is now risky, which means I cant kiss anymore without having the talk?? I also kiss my mom and daughter, which means I can also pass HSV2 to them orally?? I know they wont get genital herpes this way, but I dont want to give someone oral HSV2

Are you able to pass HBV during kissing with no visable out breaks
