After my third child was born, I tested positive for Herpes II. What an astonishing discovery after so many years of being undiscovered. Although we divorced after 17 years together, my husband did not have this disease. I later had a 5 year committed relationship with a man who also did not get this disease. None of my four children had any fallout from my illness. All were delivered vaginally, and in healthy condition. It is possible to have a happy existence, bear children, and live in a committed relationship without imposing this disease on another. This is just a word of experience for those with this STD who wish to start a family.
I hope I have as good of luck as others do who find their soul-mate here.
