Paranoia/How to discern itches/Safety

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

I would really appreciate any wise words on a current state of mind. I am lucky enough to have found a partner who is OK with my diagnosis, but I wonder if I am being too paranoid about outbreaks. We will go for long bouts without sex because I feel an itch that "could be" an outbreak, even though I can't visually see anything. Did anyone have paranoia or feelings like this after being diagnosed? I got diagnosed 6 months ago and am very new to this. We use a condom all the time but our relationship has been strained with all the time we go sex-less because I am so nervous. Most of the time when I "check" down there, I can't see anything at all. I can't see any bumps I would classify as abnormal, but the itches are familiar. Any wisdom on how to tell whether I'm having an outbreak or just paranoid would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Better safe than sorry. If you think you might be about to have an outbreak, take a break from intercourse and get creative. Things I've done while having an outbreak include performing oral on my partner, using toys on her, and masturbating while she made out with me and whispered filthy things in my ear.
