Re: Real quick question please reply
Okay, if you have herpes, the virus lives in you forever, but most of the time, your body keeps it under control to the point you have no symptoms. But, sometimes the virus has a good day, or your immune system has a bad day, and you get an outbreak. Stress can trigger them.
It might be tough to figure out exactly who gave it to whom. Ultimately, the more important question is, what next?
Maintaining your health (eating right, exercising, sleeping, managing stress) can help you avoid outbreaks, and there are drugs that can help, too. Also, you should be careful not to spread it to future partners.
Condoms, every time, symptoms or no, for all sexual contact (not just intercourse)
