Hello everyone. Im new here and im not exactly sure what to say..
Lets start off with news i found out about my boyfriend.. He is 28 years old and was recently diagnosed with Herpes.. I think it was called HSV1 or something. We've been dating for a while now and we've been each others' sexual partner for about a year and a half.. About 2 weeks ago my boyfriend found pimple looking things around his groin area. At first i thought it might have been Folicolitis, but when he went to visit his doctor she automatically said it was herpes.. Since then we havent been intimate and we dont kiss or share food because we are both scared he might possibly pass it on to me. I dont know much about herpes and would like to know how couples handle situations like these.. I have a lot of questions but cant really talk to my doctor about the subject everyday. Please if anyone would be willing to take a little time out of their lives to help answer some questions I would greatly appreciate it.
