A good point I found on Reddit (of all places)

When i first was diagnosed, i did the frenzy of searching online for any bit of comfort. One of the posts I read online, on Reddit, was a guy wondering if he should stay with a girl who just disclosed to him about her HSV2. The replies/reactions I read from literally everyone blew my mind. Everyone urged him to stay with her, and brought up really great facts to reinforce why.


One of the reasons I really liked (and I think some form of it might be good to bring up when disclosing): there are a lot of people who have HSV and don't even know it, therefore they are risky to be intimate with, compared to someone who knows they have it, is honest and open about it, and knows when they would transmit/shed/etc or not. One might actually be statistically more protected being WITH someone who definitely knows they have it, compared to all the combined population of those who 1. has it and doesn't show symptoms, 2. someone who has it and will omit the info, or 3. someone who has it and doesn't care if they pass it, etc.


Anyway, thought it was an interesting take from a Reddit post. :)
