Frequently Asked Questions on herpes and popular conversations

Recommended Posts

Hi all you H Opportunists!

 

So there have been many patterns of questions that are asked, and many get asked a lot. I'm going to start compiling Frequently Asked Questions here as they come up. As I have time, I'll be going back through old posts and consolidating those that have common themes. Hopefully that will help everyone!
