Anyone in some kind of sexual club will most likely be safe due to multiple partners.
Herpes is just inconvenient, not a life sentence of some terrible disability.
Thank you, Ella Dawson, for sharing your herpes status to end the shaming of young women.
Having Herpes is no big deal unless you make it one.
At first I too felt "dirty" and "infected" and had a temporary freak out.
So being conscious and aware is your best protection.
I spent an hour in the supermarket on my feet still reeling from my sti revelation.
It sounds more like an ingrown pubic hair NOT an STD.
Anyone with a healthy immune system who avoids sex with a partner who has an active blister will not catch it.
It's my opinion that people who focus on STI's use it as an excuse to avoid sexual situations that make them uncomfortable.
