The story, though highly judgmental and poorly informed, does underline the importance of using protection when engaging in sexual activity. I can honestly say, I have genital herpes, and you should be ashamed of yourself for judging people who have it, especially since none of us ASKED to be infected, but instead were either victims of people who didn’t have the decency to inform us, or by partners who didn’t even know themselves. 99% of the time i forget i have it because everyone is right, it IS symptomless! i used to watch the valtrex commercials and snicker and poke fun at them… its not the end of life…life is what you make of it.
Whoever wrote this headline is completely ignorant. Perhaps whoever wrote this headline (after looking in the mirror one day and saying ewww to yourself), you need to imagine 4 of your closest female friends. Now you need to realize that ONE OF THEM probably has herpes. Are you going to stop respecting her and loving her, basically thinking of her as “dirty” now? So , I’d keep my mouth shut if I were you, because those of us who are infected are SICK of hearing all the jokes, and nasty comments. the only reason i take the valtrex is to protect my partner… I am always honest, and have never had anyone turn me down or be rude to me because of it…
I came across this by accident and I am so glad I did…I want to thank all of you for your supportive comments…I feel so much better after reading everyone comment…
Yes, I have herpes and because of those people that judge us I have been hiding and making excuses not to date cuz I am afraid to tell men.
But the most important thing is accepting that something in ur life has change, but not You. wow having herpes is not fun, people are so quick to judge (i kno cause i was like that before i got it), i just wish there was a way to educat America a little better on ur health issues.
I wish someone could get the balls to talk about it publicly and not one of thoese silly commercials. When I was in high school I use to make fun of the Valtrex commercials, you know, they use to show people doing all this adventurous or exciting things like horseback riding, mountain climbing, canoeing, bike riding, whatever.
I didn’t back out on my gf when she told me…and it took 4 years and and a bit of carelessness on our part for me to get it.
It isn’t that transfferable if your careful…and I think most people know and accept that pretty well. If it’s true she has it, it only adds to her beauty as strength is an attractive quality.
I would have rather gotten away with herpes than HPV because I now have complications with cervical cancer. Put it this way, the one you turn away because they may/may not have herpes, will be the reason why the next person u try to get involved with will be the one to burn you.

You people have NO IDEA how you can easily catch it. ignorance is why people who do have it are afraid to come out and be honest about it!!! so how do i meet a nice lady that may have it to and we dont have to say we have it.
thanks If ure trying to meet sum1 there are websites such as If sum1 likes u, don’t be afraid to open up.
Which of course implies that he’s been giving out one of those dirty little gifts that keep on giving, to quite a few celebrity women. Jessica Alba(before she was Jessica Alba) used to date Derek Jeter, the serial celebrity dater, who plays for the NY Yankees.
