    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I'M A 44 YR OLD MOTHER WHO HAS BEEN MARRIED FOR ALMOST EIGHT YRS. MY HUSBAND IS CURRENTLY LOCKED UP AND I HAVEN'T BEEN WITH ANYBODY FOR 9 YRS. ABOUT A YEAR AGO, I FOUND OUT THAT I HAD HSV2 AND DON'T KNOW WHO GAVE IT TO ME. AT FIRST I STARTED NOTICING THAT I HAD MOUTH SORES AND THEN IT LED TO GENITAL SORES. I'M NOT A FAN OF KISSING PEOPLE BUT SOME GUYS WENT DOWN ON ME, COULD IT BE THAT I CONTRACTED THE VIRUS FROM THAT. MY HUSBAND THINKS THAT I'VE BEEN UNFAITHFUL. COULD SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW I GOT THIS VIRUS. IF WE DECIDE TO HAVE SEX UNPROTECTED, COULD HE BE AT RISK? WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HAVE SEX? I NEED TO KNOW IS THERE A FUTURE WITH MY HUSBAND.

    HSV can lay dormant for many, many years. You may have had this virus before you met your husband. Once he is released, he should be tested to find out his status.
