I hope someone is a trained professional reading this article because I have some serious questions! A little less than a month ago my gyno called me on the phone informing me that I have herpes and of course I flipped out. I flipped out because I have never had unprotected sex in my life I am in a committed relationship and we use a condom every time.
I asked her if this is like the cold sore kind of herpes, in which everybody has a strain of it, but she was like "no, you contracted this sexually." I haven't had a cold sore since I was 9 and this "thing" only lasted no more than five days with prescribed antibiotics and ointment. I really hope some professional, with good bed side manner, is out there reading this because I am freaking out right now. Help!
