Feeling guilty and worst than I've ever felt

Recommended Posts

3 days ago while I was intoxicated I made a horrible decision and had unprotected sex with the man of my dreams without telling him I have genital hsv2 herpes.

I religiously take my meds and had no outbreak at the time

But this morning I noticed a small spot on my butt cheek that might be a small outbreak.

What are the chances I have it to him.

I couldn't live with myself.

I think with protection and no outbreak the chance is 4%. So I'm not sure what that changes to without protection. Also, taking meds reduces the risk in half from what I've read and more women have symptoms than men. I'm hoping since you're on meds he didn't get it. Maybe try to have a conversation with him soon.. might help you to get it off your chest. Best wishes
