Freaking out
An_208376 posted:
I was just told I have genital herpes & have a LOT of questions:

1) Is there a way 2 know how gave it 2 whom ?

2) Will this mean I can NEVER have unprotected sex again ?

3) Can I NEVER have oral sex again ?

4) I had NO clue anything was wrong until 2 days later. (I thought it was from rubbing) Did I maybe have it before & not know it. I have been with the same partner for 11 years & had a moment of weakness.

5) The person I was with had red dots on him after we were together & we both thought it was just from rubbing ? Was he a carrier ? His spots are gone & I am still with mine ?

6) The person I was with is a fireman & emt, does he need 2 tell his boss he might be infected ?

7) I am on Zovirax ~ 5 days 5 pills a day then 1 pill 2 times a day after. Can I take all 5 pills @ once or do I have 2 take them thru out the day ? & are there side effects ?

8) Should the person I was with be on these pills also ? He was just told & has not been 2 the doctor yet, could he not even have it ?

9) If I have genital herpes does that mean I cant kiss someone & exchange sliva ?

Someone please help me I am FREAKING out big time.. Thanks
