What do you do when you want to date but your afraid they may ask you the question? If you are not having sex with them i don't think it is their business. If you wear a condom can you pass herpes to your mate if they don't have herpes?
I got tested for herpes and the test came back saying I had herpes antibodies. I haven't had an outbreak, just occasional itching which is a symptom apparently. I'm just confused as to whether I should do another test to double check the situation.
I had my initial HSV-1 outbreak within one week of getting a bikini wax and then an IUD. My gynecologist says it is rare, but possible that the IUD insertion was not done completely hygienically. My antibodies test results indicated the virus was recently acquired. Could it have been the bikini wax? If it was only possible with the IUD, I'd like to pursue a possible legal case.
