What to Do If You Were Just Diagnosed with Genital Herpes
If you were just diagnosed with herpes, you're probably freaking out and don't know where to go or turn to. I hope this video sheds some light on the topic you're interested in, how to go on, and where to search for information.
Being Promiscuous Will Get You a Herpes Diagnosis
There's a preconceived notion in many of us that being promiscuous will definitely get you herpes. If you will not sleep around, or not sleep with 'those people', or always do things the right way, there's no way you're going to get herpes.
I also thought I'm that person.
Being Diagnosed with Herpes Later in Life
Sometimes people think it's easier to get diagnosed later in life, and other times, people think it's easier when we're younger and we can deal with it easier. The truth is, there's never a good time to get diagnosed and it can always be hard to deal with outbreaks and disclose to our partners, when dating seems so far away.
Asymptomatic and Living with Herpes with Alexandra Harbushka
According to Oxford's dictionary the definition of asymptomatic is, "(of a condition or a person) producing or showing no symptoms." So what this means for someone living with herpes is, they have herpes but don't have any symptoms. They don't get outbreaks, they don't have tingles, they don't get itchy, they don't have any sensation or clue that they have herpes.
This has been really helpful. I was diagnosed (if that’s the proper term) 5 months ago and I sought as much information and support as possible when I found out but now that I’m seeing someone new, I wanted to get some advice on how to tell them and this whole podcast has been great. Thank you so much.
