*Herpes*

   Ask Hayley,

   I was diagnosed with herpes almost a year ago. I didn't tell my gyno that I had contracted them from a cold sore on my partners lip. My question is, is this the same as having contracted herpes from
   intercourse?
  
   I do have another question. I'm starting to get serious with someone new. And I'm not sure how to go about this subject. Any suggestions?
   Shelby
  
   Dear Shelby,
   There's a long answer to your question, but I'll try to keep it simple. Herpes is caused by two viruses: herpes 1 and herpes 2. Most often (but NOT always) herpes 1 causes cold sores on people's lips and herpes 2 causes sores on people's genitals. This is not always the case, so without a viral sample from a sore, one can't know which virus is causing a sore. One important distinction is that sores caused by herpes 1 are usually less severe and heal faster. If you did get herpes-1 from someone, you're likely to have less frequent and shorter recurrences. In terms of telling your new partner my advise is to get to know him a little first and then just tell him. Don't make too big a deal about it, but be honest. You also might want to convey these facts: genital herpes is extremely common, approximately 22% of all adults in the United States have the virus(over 90% have antibodies to herpes-1). The catch is that less than half have significant symptoms, so they don't know they're infected If you want more information I recommend contacting the American Social Health Organization at 919-361-8488.

  Our Philosophy sex is like dancing, it changes every time. It depends on culture, atmosphere and mood. Sometimes it is done alone, with a partner or in a group. It can be fast and hard or slow and soft. Sex is a combination of non-verbal negotiation and verbal cues: a scream, a twitch of the toes, or a flush of the face. There is no one 'right' way to move, only what feels good to all those involved.
