I was just dx with herpes, wow, still in shock and feeling pretty sad. I have been married for 11 years and I'm 35 with 2 children. I thought I had a UTI and it turned into this. If you want to hear more of my story let me know, but to answer your question they told me that it can be dormant for years... like 15 I said as I have been in a committed relationship. I lay in bed at night and think about it only 6 days since dx and it consumes me. How did I get this, I didn't deserve it, why now?
Don't beat yourself up! There is life after gh... I had it for almost 7 years and I have dated men that accepted my problem. One I almost married but I moved to another state because of my job! So there is possible love and marriage after gh. Never give up on life and your dreams. Hell I'm not! Continue living,,,
