: : I have been seeing my bf for around 9 months now. He told me up front that he had herpes and I accepted this for the accident it was and not a flaw on his part. Things were great for the first few months but as each month passes by, the fequency is becoming less and less. He recently told me that he doesn't have much interest in sex but did in the beginning because it had been a long period in between partners. Is it possible that he is not that interested in sex due to the herpes? We are carefull and I have not contracted it so I have little experience in this matter. I would love to hear the opinions of others that may have gone through a similar experience. Thanks.

: Well from experence. i was not that intrested in sex. mainly because it was not as pleasurable to me . Since i broke up with the one who gave it to me it has been hard to enter new relationships. But in my last one sex did start to happen less. mainly because it sometimes was painful and uncomfortable. What i suggest is talk with him about it and get the feelings out in the open. Especially if you really care about him and want the relationship to go some where. that might help. but i am not sure. right now i am tring to figure out a way to tell my new bf and when is the best time.

Thanks Amy, I appreciate your response. And because I was on the recieving end of such news I would just like to say that the sooner you tell him the better. This might sound funny but when my bf went to tell me I thought he was going to break up with me but I was actually relieved when he told me the truth. I have had friends that had herpes so I feel that I am fairly well informed and able to deal with the problems that might come out of it. I know what my chances are. I would like to think that your bf would take it well and support you with all the love you need and deserve. But he might not. Just tell him and give him time to take it all in. If he comes back to you, then he is a very special person and if not, well you are better off and deserve better. Take care and good luck.
