Honestly, I'm living with HIV positive for 2 years. I'm young and it feels like the life I had ahead of me was ripped away. A std support site STDdatings.com helps me a lot. It was created for people to find useful, up-to-date information about prevention and cure for herpes, HPV, HIV, find safe dating with STDs. Don't let it define who you are, its not the end of the world.

I thought my life was over when I learned I had Herpes. But in a way it was a blessing, for I have found my other half on Hmeet.com . I may not be religious, but having found He makes me believe that everything happens for a reason. I am still in awe everyday that I have found him and how well we fit together.

Herpes is one of the most misunderstood std's out there. The simple truth is that 90% of the adult population has it but doesn't realize it. If you ever get a fever blister you have herpes. The only difference between mouth herpes and the other kind is simply where it's located. It's the same virus, resting at the back of your brain untill something triggers it and you get an outbreak. There is no difference in oral herpes and the other kind, just the location, and there is no cure for herpes, though drugs such as Valtrax can stop an ourbreak once you get one. Odds are these wrestlers already had the virus and why the big to do here is beyond me. You may know more about herpes on the dating and support site POZmingle. com. Good luck to you all!

It's good that a drug for the treatment of recurrent mucocutaneous herpes simplex infections in HIV-infected patients and also for suppression of recurrent genital herpes in immunocompetent patients has now a generic counterpart. At least it's cheaper compared to the branded one.

I have herpes and I am an engineer who works for the largest herpes dating and support site HerpesMate . com. I have to tell you a secret, you can choose not to believe me. But the truth is that this site has more than 1,880,000 members and about 80% members are good looking in my estimation. Unfortunately, STD rates soar worldwide and most people with STDs don't even know that they have them. The government should grant more money for STD education to lower the rates of STD transmission.
