Disclosure Talk went 'OK'-ADVICE PLEASE

Recommended Posts

Okay so I've been seeing this guy I'm really into since July & last week I had 'The Talk' w/ him about me having HSV2. I have told one other guy who took it well & we swiftly moved on. I let this new guy I've been seeing know that I'm one of the 'lucky' ones that done get 'Episodes' & so it doesn't affect my day to day life. He seemed to take it pretty well. He never stopped holding my hand & even kissed me when we parted. Later on that day he kept sending me texts saying how highly he thought of me & how pissed he was that my ex would do something like this to me. I let him know that I had already gotten past that phase & was accepting of where I was & didn't want him to feel bad for me. I thought he was taking it well & in the next two days we talked about it along w/ other normal conversation. Finally 2 days later I asked him where he stood on the issue-he stated he didn't know much about it, never had to deal w/ this issue before & the "risk" of getting it is what worries him. He then proposed that we go & see a doctor together. So now we have an apptment to go to a doctor on Saturday (my reg. Doctor is out of town currently

Hello and Welcome!


Well, I actually agree with your guy - however, you really want to make sure it's the "right" doctor ....


By that, I mean, I'd avoid a GP/PCP type doctor because their knowledge is pretty limited and often out of date. Your best bet is either an OBGYN or Planned Parenthood ... and given that your Dr is out of town, I'd be careful of going to just any doctor in the practice.


You may also want to talk to the Dr at Westover Heights Clinic. They can do a phone consultation ... it's $5/minute and they are very patient with answering questions.

Adrial has some great handouts that you can give him or send him the link as well as a video in the meantime ....
