i’m totally scared of dating again. aside from the obvious fear of ego wars, being rejected, and living in the unknown; more specifically, i’m terrified of getting an std. terrified. i’ve come this far without getting warts, syphilis, hpv,  herpes, having an abortion, or ANYTHING… and i don’t want to start NOW. i wonder how many people i’ve given blowjobs to and had sex with in the past who had herpes, but i didn’t know cuz they didn’t tell me, and i didn’t get it. and now that i’m older, i’ve begun asking people point-blank  if they have any sexually transmitted diseases, and when i boldly ask… they boldly tell me the truth. and sometimes the truth is ‘yes’, which is a very brave thing to come out and say. it’s what they should do. it’s a very personal, vulnerable thing to share and i totally respect them for it… but it makes me want to run in the other fucking direction as quickly as possible.

as quickly as i’d asked, i’ll have wished i hadn’t… because now i have all the information at my disposal. and there’s something to be said for ‘ignorance is bliss’ i mean, at least until you find out you caught something. and while i’m totally able to separate my affection and fondness and respect for a person, from my fear of their std,  it still weighs on me. cuz as much as i am attracted to someone who might have something, my main priority is to protect myself. i’m all for being sympathetic and empathetic and i know life happens and this is life and std’s are very common and happen, but at the same time, to have casual sex and risk getting herpes from someone who isn’t even going to be a potential boyfriend and who will never, could never love me… well, that’s too big a risk to take.

i have friends with oral herpes aka hsv 1 (cold sores that break out on and around their mouth) and i have friends with hsv 2 aka genital herpes – both suck. both have stigmas. obviously genital herpes sounds worse and have a worse stigma cuz it’s a break out on your private and for women who have it, it can also affect your baby when giving birth in the future. and while you can at least, more casually, refer to oral herpes/hsv 1 as ‘cold sores’ and they are more common cuz you can get infected with that as a kid, from kissing or sharing drinks… it still sucks cuz they are outbreaks on your face and both forms are extremely contagious. you could have an oral outbreak (or not), go down on someone and give them hsv 1 on their genitals. or you could go down on someone and get hsv 2 on your mouth if THEY have genital herpes. and people can pass the virus through ‘shedding’ while they aren’t even having a breakout. it’s all so terrifying to me.

i’ve asked my gynecologist all about it and done so much research because i am an anxious, obsessing, over thinking, worrier and i like being that way. i like caring and getting all the information, so that i can protect myself as best as possible. she told me that if people with hsv 1 or 2 were to take a low dose of valtrex on a daily basis, they could significantly reduce transmission of the virus. it reduces ‘shedding’ of the virus and it lessons the chance of a potential outbreak. but when i tell my friends who have the herps, i don’t think they believe me, or want to take a pill everyday. but why? just take it! if not just to prevent your own potential outbreak, but to protect the people you hook up with. smoking, stress, drug use, anything that compromises your immune system, and even the onset of your period also increases your chances of having an outbreak. that’s why it’s important to take vitamins that strengthen your immune system, not smoke or do drugs, and keep your stress level down. i tell my friends all these things, but then i get labeled as ‘freaking out’ or ‘obsessive’. well, i gladly accept these labels.

i don’t know what’s worse, to not have herpes and live in fear of getting it, or to be on the other side and already have it and no longer have to live in fear of getting it – but then you’d have to worry about break outs,  telling someone you have it, and possibly infecting someone. unless you decide not to tell at all. but that would be a really horrible thing to not do. i suppose in either case, you can decide if you want to ‘worry’ about any of it. all i know is that i don’t have anything yet, and i do live in fear about it when sex is concerned.

the fact that there is NO CURE for herpes is terrifying, not to mention the social stigma attached to it. a stigma that makes you seem dirty and makes people scared. and overall, it all just seems like a painful hassle, headache that would make life more complicated. i already had cancer when i was in my early twenties. i don’t want anymore hassles or responsibility or things to worry about. i already have that when it comes to making a living, maintaining my friendships, trying to make my dreams come true, not getting pregnant, avoiding moving violations, and falling in love. dating and meeting new people is hard enough without having to pick up ointment and keep a shameful secret.

and why does it seem like women are the only ones who get tested? why does it seem like girls are the only ones who are mindful and responsible when it comes to going to the doctor? men seem to only run to a doctor when it’s too late and there’s a sore on their dick or ooze pouring out of some orifice. it doesn’t have to be like that. men are the ones who don’t carry condoms to put over their dick; men are the ones who say ‘i hate wearing a condom. i cant feel anything.’. if they would just get regular check ups and blood tests after each sexual partner, or even just every month or two, and stopped thinking about only their dicks comfort, maybe stds wouldn’t spread as easily. i’m not saying it’s all mens fault; and i know i get tested more than most people, cuz i’m hyper health conscious and lucky enough to have health insurance, but you don’t need health insurance to get tested. and to be concerned about your health and others doesn’t make you neurotic, it makes you mindful and respectful of your body and the person you choose to link yourself to physically.

and if it seems like i’m man bashing, i’m not – but here’s what i do know from talking to men and women and doctors and people of all ages, genders, shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and sexual orientations, etc… that the general consensus is: men hate going to the doctor and wearing condoms. case closed. this is a very general statement, but one that is more true than not.

ugh. life! insert emoji of a girl in pink throwing her arms up in a flurry of a huff.

and ps: because i do ask people/strangers about their opinion on herpes, and sex, and their fear of it all – can i tell you something horrific i’ve heard people say (mainly teenagers, but adults as well) on MORE than one occasion? i’ve heard people say ‘i dont have herpes, i’m white.’ wtf?! well you are in for a rude awakening you small-minded racist bonehead. white people get herpes too. jesus fucking christ! what is wrong with people?!

fuck, when i start having sex again, i might start taking preventative valtrex to protect myself from getting something. and yes, i already intend on having protected sex. but i think the smarter thing for me would be to only enter into a sexual relationship with someone i could be in a real relationship with. as obvious as that seems, it’s a big step for me, as i’m a person who loves sex and does what she feels and wants to do. prior to my last relationship, i had sex here and there with people i liked, but it wasn’t serious. and that was a blast. you could label me as ‘promiscuous’ or ‘slutty’ but that’s such a lame, misogynistic, unfair, gender stereotype. men can do whatever they want, but if a woman has sex like a man does, cuz she wants to, cuz she can, MEN and girls who don’t know better call her a slut. well fuck off, and grow up.

however, nowadays, i do think it’s important to know why you make the decisions you do. i think it’s important to be conscious of your decision-making and to not be acting out of fear or some sort of subconscious, unhealthy, untrue belief system or sense of obligation; to think you must do something to please someone else, or because you think this is what you have to do because it’s all you can do, or what you’re supposed to do, or you deserve this. if you can really have a frank discussion with yourself and know why you choose what you choose, or why you want to do something: that’s awesome.

anyways, here’s to being single, making healthy choices, being careful, and playing the game of sexual russian roulette. good luck everyone. xo

  1. hi. im testing to see if the comment section works


  2. As someone who calls herself a relationship expert and self esteem coach. I’m disappointed you didn’t take the opportunity to be positive for the people who have hsv. You’re telling people they should be ran from. That’s between 50-90% of the population because that’s how many people have it. Only 25% of that number have symptoms much less even know they have it. I’m sure you’ve thought about what you would do if you caught it, I would have liked to hear what positive outlook you would put on it.
    While I’m on the topic and since you were on her show, people praised Lena Dunham for portraying getting an std on her show. An incurable one, yet she goes on to have sex with new people and doesn’t tell them about it. If ahe didn’t avoid the “talk” it would have made for interesting tv and could have given guidance for a lot of people.


  3. Good god. Have you been tested for HERPES just because you don’t have sores, doesn’t mean you don’t carry the virus. Why is there a stigma because of people like you. My daughter was 3 when she caught hsv1 probably from kissing another kid at nursery. This doesn’t make her unclean or dirty.


  4. in response to ‘devils advocate’: i don’t call myself a self esteem coach, OR a relationship expert actually. but that aside, this post isn’t about me telling people how to feel. it’s an honest and personal journal entry addressing my fear… and it’s a conversations starter about a topic that everyone’s way to scared to talk about. so before you attack me and feel disappointed by me… see this for what it is, someone being honest and thinking deeply about a pervasive issue. that’s all. i think it’s just the beginning of a healthy dialogue. i hope more people comment and share their feeling/thoughts/experiences/and advice on the topic. : )


  5. In response to your post I would like tell me own story involving hsv. In February this year I started dating this wonderful man, whom I have grown to love very much and we are very close, we also have great sex. In July however I was starting to feel weird so I asked him to get tested, and turns out he is positive with hsv-1 which is very common, about eighty percent of the population has it on their mouth. In August however it transferred to my genitals. I was upset and puzzled but I think that I would have felt much better and had a more realistic outlook if I had more people to openly talk to instead of keeping it secret and feeling ashamed, especially since I got it from someone that I trusted and my case is rare.
    My point is that I don’t think this article is very supportive to people who are infected with hsv, and it wouldn’t have helped me at all if I had read this in August. I still feel uncomfortable reading it. HSV is extremely common, it can happen to anyone no matter how careful you are and every case is different. My stepmom, two of my aunts, my boyfriends mother, and a few of my friends have it. It’s not brought up casually though, but what is talked about openly is the fear of getting herpes and how it’s so horrible and ruins your life, which makes girls and boys like me who have it feel crummy.
    I think you’re a great writer but you don’t know what you are talking about right now, and if you had this STI you would have a very different outlook.
    I definitely don’t think my life is any worse from this disease or any better it just is what it is, you shouldn’t live in fear of it, but always be careful.


  6. in response to ron: good god, OF COURSE i’ve been tested for both types of hsv. i get tested all the time. even when i’m in a monogamous relationship. and i am negative. and i know your daughter isn’t unclean. my post is more about a fear of genital herpes and really just an honest account of fear in general – which i’m allowed to have. see my above response to ‘devils advocate’.


  7. gracey-lou: thank you for your honesty. but keep in mind that it’s not my job to make you or anyone feel better. my post is an honest account of fear as a person who has yet to contract hsv. it’s a personal journal entry, made public. all i wanted to do was put it out there to get a convo going. which i actually think is a good thing, whether you believe it or not. just as people feel differently than i do about hsv… a lot of people feel the EXACT same way i do. and the overall thing this post is doing is getting a dialogue started, and i hope to learn from people who comment and shed light on the topic. i’m not always using this blog to ‘tell it how it is’ or whatever, i use this blog to reach out and learn from others as well. does that make sense? it does to me.


  8. My girlfriend has herpes, and before we had sex she was upfront about it and told me right away. I respect her for being so brave with this embarassing and potentially off-putting subject, but out of concern for my own health and my own unfortunate lack of reliable information about it, waited until I had done some research before we had sex. I consulted a personal doctor friend and he explained the risks, but also gave me some articles from a couple of medical journals so I could make my own decision and the most important thing I learned is that the ‘scariness’ of herpes is really not that scary at all if you are well informed. At first, it’s a terrifying and dirty word, but if you take the time to look into it, it’s not that terrifying. If anyone is worried about getting herpes from a hookup, know how to protect yourself. For those in a relationship with someone with herpes, you know the risks (which are easily manageable; depending on frequency of outbreaks) and can make the decision for yourself whether or not the risk is worth the relationship. For me it is.


  9. Thanks Kyle! I appreciate your contribution!


  10. I don’t have herpes. If my friends do, they have never spoken of it. I think the issue and it extends beyond STD’s, is raising awareness of things that affect the human experience but do not receive proper attention or are considered unfit to openly speak of. The article is promoting people to come together and do such. We apply this solution in mental health matters daily. I believe you can find the same results with topics of modern sex.


  11. How is being disappointed by someone attacking them? Regardless of what you call yourself people go to you with their problems and listen to you and your pep talks for advice. I’m glad you write about it, not many other people do. The only other blogger I can think of is roctakon, he has a very different opinion than yours. One of the reasons no one talks about this is everyone has an irrational fear over a virus that isn’t very harmful. So much so that its not a standard test for sti screenings. I get you’re posting your inner thoughts and initial reaction but you could also be more constructive. Think about how your readers who have it may get it will feel if they read this post.


  12. write your own blog post ‘devils advocate’, cuz i’m happy and fine with what i wrote. i owe you nothing. and my life isn’t about living up to your expectation of what i’m supposed to be writing or saying. i wrote an honest, personal journal entry. that’s that. : )


  13. You all probably already have herpes. The incidence rate in US adults is between 70-80%, and more than 50% of people with it are completely asymptomatic. That means 35-40% of the population has it but doesn’t show symptoms, whereas only 20-30% actually don’t have it. For someone that doesn’t show symptoms, that’s odds as high as 2:1 that you are infected and don’t know it.

    But let’s think about what being infected actually means – you have an outbreak of sores once in while. Unlike HIV, it will not kill you. Unlike syphilis, it will not make you go insane. Unlike HPV, it will not cause cancer or prevent you from having children. Unlike a cold, it won’t stop you from missing work unless you are a mouth model. It may possibly increase your chances of contracting another disease, including STIs, during periods of active outbreaks. But that’s basically it.

    In fact, the idea that a herpes outbreak is a major disease is a recent invention, invented in the 1970s by a drug company that wanted to make money. As late as 1978 it wasn’t dealt with in most medical texts, and where it was, it was treated like acne – purely a cosmetic problem with no far-reaching health effects. Because that’s what it is. Only by association with worse STIs was it ever possible to make people afraid of it.


  14. best comment award goes to: GIRL CRAZY!

    thank you for the informative comment!


  15. I benefit from this post.


  16. Hi! I found this article interesting, mainly because of the churn in my stomach it caused. I have HSV-1 genitally, and obviously reading something about how someone could be so scared to become infected with what I have to live with sucks.

    But…I get it.

    Herpes ISN’T fun; it isn’t enjoyable, and while I have been extremely lucky (I’ve only had one outbreak so far) others have a much more difficult experience. I kind of wish I had thought more about herpes too…I used to think about other STDs and have always gotten tested but I always thought herpes could only be passed when people had active sores and I didn’t think you could get herpes from oral sex. I understand you wanting to protect yourself, although I think your fear is a little out of line with the reality (and I’m not saying that in a mean way).

    When I was diagnosed I was DISTRAUGHT. I was in excruciating pain. I thought my life was over, or at least my sex life was (which is a huge part of life). I felt disgusted with my genitals. I was young, scared and felt repulsive and dirty. I was so scared to tell boys (by the way the three men I have told, who weren’t even boyfriends, were totally supportive and great about it).

    Eventually you realize it isn’t that bad, and if you ever are unfortunate enough to get herpes that has active symptoms (less common then no-symptoms) you will realize this too. It’s ok, although it’s an annoyance and a constant burden that hangs over your head, you will be ok. Do I wish I didn’t have herpes? Fuck yes. Do I wish I could go back in time? Of course. Is my life over? No. Have I caused anyone else to have an outbreak? No.


  17. It makes much more sense to be terrified of HIV- because obviously that can kill, and it’s more common in straight, non IV drug users than people think. If your going to pick one disease to worry about, I’d pick that one. Or best of all, try to enjoy your life and be safe but don’t let it eat away at you. That being said, you obviously are like me, anxious and neurotic so I understand that that is who you are. It’s totally fair to write about your fear of getting herpes.

    You probably should only date people you are going to be entering into a relationship with, who you can make sure has been tested before you have sex, if that will make you feel better. But, it’s also not worth living in fear…yes you could get herpes at any time, but it will be ok.

    Sorry for the ramble.

    P.s. I think going on valtrex for suppression is a great option although it does require monitoring and some people are unsure about going on medication every day…this isn’t great for your body of course. The reasons your friends don’t is probably because their herpes isn’t bad enough to warrant that and the doctor might not even prescribe it if they don’t get enough outbreaks!

    PPS. Herpes was the least big deal in the world until recently- like girl crazy said. Our parents generation just accepted it as something that people got, but post-AIDS world is different. Probably a good thing we are so concerned about our sexual health but sometimes it can make us really scared! Things sound so scary when you read about them.

    PPPS. YES to boys getting tested. This drives me crazy. Boys need to take some responsibility in this department (and lots do) but every single sexually active person needs to get tested on the reg.


  18. Recently broke off my engagement and I celebrated/acted out in the only way I know how, by seeking the affection of as many men as I could. So over a weekend I made out with 4 men and slept with 2 of them. After being in a relationship for 4 years I had completely forgotten that people have germs. Obviously I known about stds and I was safe in that area but I’m talking just germs in general. Well by Tuesday the following week I was reaching for the phone and calling in sick. I had introduced so many new germs to my system and topped it off with little sleep and lots of alcohol. My immune system didn’t have a chance. So I drag my weak and disease ridden body to the doctor. Diagnosis, the flu or the Whore Flu as I called. And this was not the good flu that leaves you 10 lbs lighter. No this was just pure misery, fever, body aches, and fatigue. So missed work, $300 in meds, and my dignity missing I conside myself lucky it was a valuable and hellish lesson from the universe reminding me that people are gross have diseases. I mean it could have been much worse like herpes or tuberculosis. Newly single, most important thing i need to do is protect myself not just from stds but from the cesspool of single men.


  19. I read this article and wow, you are literally the worst. You’re 33 years old and this is the crap going through your mind… 20 paragraphs reiterating the fact that people who have herpes should be ran from. can’t even imagine reading this if I had herpes and the shame I would be made to feel because some pretentious, trust funder of mediocre intelligence who spends her days at M cafe worrying about her diet and writing overly drawn out entries talking shit on people with incurable STDs that comprise more than half the population. Just wow.


  20. JEN,
    first of all, thanks for taking the time to read my post and waste your valuable time commenting. but if you think i’m bad, your comment proves that you’re worse. reread your comment. i wonder who you are that you think you know me so well and that i used to go to m cafe a lot. ha! you seem to know so much about someone you don’t like. and btw: my post is a journal entry about a real thing in life that is scary and pervasive. it’s not all i think about. i have a very full and wonderful life. it’s not meant to be shaming. it’s an honest entry that i’m happy i posted because people’s comments (not yours) are very informative and illuminating, and helping ease my fear and gain more understanding and clarity on the topic. if you choose to judge me and belittle me for being honest and sharing, that’s fine with me. the joke’s on you cuz you wasted your time, not mine, indulging me. and one thing i want to be clear about, i am not a trust finder at all. quite the opposite. i’m a poor kid who grew up and pays for everything i have. but i’m flattered you think i’m so fancy. keep on being so hateful and apparently ageist. ha! isn’t being ageist just as bad as potentially shaming someone for a common std? my post isn’t hateful. it’s honest and reflective aimed at no one specific. whereas your comment, not so much. lots of love/happy holidays.


  21. I’m not going to lie but getting herpes was one of my major fears in life. I never shared food/drinks or participated in the hook up culture. Then when I was about 21, I entered my first and serious relationship. Before the relationship started, I asked if he had ever had herpes about 50 times. Just to make sure. He said no each time. In addition, I tried to do the right thing and have him get tested as well before we started doing anything (he had already had sex with a few girls and I was a virgin) but he refused until a few months later when random bumps grew down there. He got tested,was clean, and the bumps were just silly ingrowns. However, one night, after sex, we turned on the lights and he had a bump on his lip. I didn’t notice it before. He didn’t either and then he was like, “Oh yeah, I used to get these all the time.” I soon ended up with my first case of mouth herpes a few days later and cried, cried, cried. Apparently, he didn’t know cold sores around the mouth were herpes. Also, jerk alert but he broke up with me when I got my first outbreak because he felt guilty. It was terrible, it lasted for about 3 weeks on my mouth,it was huge, and bled constantly. I haven’t had it since the first time(over a year and a half). I’m in a new relationship at the moment and it still scares me. I told my partner right away and he didn’t mind. However, two weeks ago he got his first outbreak so I’m not sure if it came from me or someone else because he likes sharing food/drinks like it’s no big deal. It’s unclear if I spread it to him or someone else since I’m in a LDR with him. He got tested for type 1 and 2 and he only had type 1. My doctor once said I couldn’t spread it unless I had an outbreak but I don’t even know anymore after this incident. Even though I have the virus within me, I still fear that I may accidentally infect someone or I may get Type 2. etc etc.


  22. […] the brand new, single ladies worry of herpes: highlight Her.ie […]


  23. As some one who has happily and honestly lived with HSV2 for 5+ years (the highlight of my 20’s) I think your, “just take the pills” opinion only adds to the negative stigma of having herpes.

    Most people do not have insurance, these medications are incredibly expensive. And most doctors suggest natural remedies to help prevent breakouts, such as just living a healthy life style (proper sleep/exercise etc). So demanding your friends take pills we don’t really know the long term side affects from yet, on the daily, isn’t very empathetic to their situation. The drugs also lose their potency over years of use, just as any antibiotic does. So when one does suffer a painful break out, wouldn’t you want those little poisons to really kick herpes in the ass?

    And I think your whole fear of herpes is just insulting. This post only adds to the insecurity of herpes victims. It doesn’t really start a healthy conversation, which was your intention right?

    And I’d like to high five Jen. Thanks for sticking up for us nasty people with herpes.


  24. JESS,
    here’s the thing, i really appreciate your comment. and point taken. i believe i mentioned the fact that i’m lucky to have insurance, and i know most don’t. and i also totally get your point that you’d want the pills to kick the outbreaks ass. that’s all informative and awesome. my problem however is this, i didn’t write this post to lead by example or start a HEALTHY conversation… i simply posted a very honest journal entry of my fear, which by the way, i am NOT proud of. and i knew people would get defensive. but it is honest. AND a healthy conversation about hsv is a WONDERFUL BYPRODUCT of my politically incorrect post. do you see the difference? and while my post wasn’t personal, your response is. when you decide to get pissed at me, it’s because you’re being defensive and making it personal. you needn’t do that. but i understand it. i welcome the criticism and anger. you have to be ready for that when you put yourself out there like i do. but what i welcome even more is the information and stories and other sides to this topic presented in a neutral way. you don’t have to be defensive and angry and insult me. i know you feel i’m personally insulting you or an entire group of people. and i get that. but i don’t mean to be. i am allowed to feel whatever i feel. and i am allowed to be fearful. but no one is attacking you. but if being angry at me makes you feel better and you want to team up with jen who was pretty nasty, so be it. or you could just be bigger and shine a light on my darkness and fear so that i become as illuminated as you are. but that’s easier said than done. think about it. lots of love, alexi

  32. Alexi, thanks for writing this entry. Earlier this year, I met a girl and we started dating. Before we first started having sex, we asked eachother about stds. So of course I thought I was in the clear once this happened. 3 months into the relationship it comes out that she has hsv1. I asked why she didn’t tell me earlier and she said she didn’t think it was a big deal. Since she’s had hsv1 her whole life, in her mind it’s not an std and therefore not worth mentioning. Ok, fair enough. I realize it is common and has an unfair stigma attached to it and at the end of the day is really just a skin condition, but it doesn’t change the fact that I’d prefer NOT to get it. We continued dating for a little bit but the relationship began to decline. The handful of times that we talked about it, she was very dismissive and couldn’t understand where I was coming from. Eventually we broke up because we just couldn’t see eye to eye on it (her p.o.v. being like the angry poster above – just a little less angry.) I grew a lot from the experience and could even imagine being with someone who has herpes under the right circumstances. Meaning, they would have to be understanding about my fear and agree to take the necessary precautions. But if the person basically just has this attitude of “get over it” then it likely won’t work.

  36. I came to this blog tonight for the first time in years, remembering with sudden hope the name that occasionally pops up on my Facebook newsfeed, “imboycrazy”. After a week of excruciating pain, heavy emotional baggage, a UTI, and a BV infection, I was diagnosed with genital herpes this morning. I am 19 years old, and have never had penis-in-vagina sex. I thought that because you are “boy crazy”, and you have so much experience with guys, you might potentially have contracted herpes at some point, or at least have had someone close to you go through it. Remembering you as a bold, reassuring figure for women, I searched for “herpes” in the search bar. I got more excited as I noticed the phrase “you are not alone!” popping up here and there.
    That’s what I need to hear tonight…that I am not alone. I looked through the posts that showed up, avoiding this one because reading about the fear or herpes didn’t sound helpful for the fear and shame I am feeling. Seeing nothing that appeared any more relevant, I clicked on it. When I read it, it broke my heart. My first day as an official victim of herpes, and I have learned that I am to be looked down upon by even the women I perceive to be beacons of hope for our sex. I am feared by women in their 30s. I need to make sure I keep paying for heavy drugs, for the rest of my life, if I want to be seen as a reasonable -but still dirty and scary- herpes-carrying human being. I’m sad, to say the least.


  37. This is what I was trying to warn you about Alexi. As someone who gives vulnerable people advice in podcasts, online and now is advertising herself as a therapist you have a responsibility to not induce fear and shame. You have a powerful voice be careful how you use it.


  38. My name is Dr Omose Lawrence and I have taken part in providing people with home remedies for herpes, Dengue fever, Cold viruses, HEPATITIS B that have been in use for thousands of years now. I teach people on simple protocols, which help victims to improve their immune system and advice on substances necessary to dissolve the protein coat of the virus. I have been working on this for quite some time now, and I am sure with this new solution, you could probably be seeing herpes for the last time after at least three weeks. I prove medical approved documentation, which can help you get rid of the herpes that beings you shame once. It is not a miracle falling from heaven. It is a product of the great and the gifted minds.I am the author of a product that can help you deal with herpes. You can call this a miracle finding. After stumbling upon a 100% proven to eliminate the herpes virus from the human body, I thought that the best thing to do would be to share this out with you. I am doing this all free, with my hope being that the product will help you every step of the way on a daily for 21 one days to get rid of the embarrassment. The product work best for both the HSV-1 and HSV-2 and will take only 3 weeks (21 days) to complete. The product has no recorded side effects and there will be nom any forms of medication required. The best thing is that it is cheap. you can reach me via : dromoselawrenceherbelremendy15@gmail.com


  39. I thought I’d through my 2 cents in here as someone who has hsv 1 (oral).

    – I understand her fear of herpes. I didn’t know much about any STD’s until after I contracted hsv 1. Maybe if I had known more I could have avoided contracting it.

    – The first outbreak for me was the worst – cold like symptoms + cold sore. Afterwards they get less severe.

    – I get between 1-2 outbreaks per year (one cold sore each).

    – You can definitely manage it with a healthy diet, stress control, and sleep. It actually has made me healthier which seems like a weird thing to say, but it’s true! It makes me really conscious of keeping a really clean diet (lots of veggies, water, grains, lean protein, no sugar, no processed food), reducing my stress, and getting enough sleep. I am always making really good decisions for my body because I always think ‘Well if I start eating shit today I’m probably going to get a cold sore later – FUCK THAT!’ So it’s actually become a blessing in disguise because if it weren’t for hsv 1, my body would actually be in worse condition because I wouldn’t be making the same healthy choices consistently.


  40.
