Rant: so much bad info out there!

Recommended Posts

So after months of being single and avoiding the dating scene since splitting with the guy that infected me, I started talking to someone. I finally felt it appropriate to disclose, and he is trying to be understanding. The problem is all of the bad or misleading information out there. I have genital HSV 2, and have for over a year now. He's afraid to kiss me! I'm just not sure how to convince him that I won't put him at risk without informing him of the risk, or that there is still so much non-sexual intercourse stuff we can do that doesn't necessarily put him at risk. It's so frustrating! Anyone else run into this? How did you combat the bad info?

That's what we are here for! Spreading GOOD, RELIABLE information and support. So I'm going to give you some links below to give him. On top of that, you may want to suggest that he come on here and ask people who live with it what the facts are. If he's too shy or thinks we are "biased", Westover Heights has a great booklet too... I'll add the infor below. They are a clinic and he can even call and talk to a Dr there for a small fee.


Hope this helps!

Westover Heights Clinic,http://westoverheights.com/ (503) 226-6678 ... It costs $5/minute for a consult … cheap IMO for clarity and/or peace of mind.
