Is It Worth It To Tell?

Is it worth telling someone you have genital herpes? I say absolutely. It's not necessarily something which you need to tell right away, but it is something which does need to be discussed prior to having sexual relations. Telling is a huge topic of discussion amongst those of us who have herpes. Each situation is different and there is no wrong or right way. The best advice I can give is to educate yourself first and get right with you, before you can expect anyone else to be OK with it. If you approach it fearfully, chances of scaring someone off is pretty high. If you realize within yourself that it's not the end of the world, you'll be able to explain the risks involved to a partner with a level head and without alot of unnecessary emotion. Good luck in telling someone you have herpes. We never said it would be easy, but just remember that if someone does not accept you, then it simply wasn't meant to be with that person anyway and you're much better off knowing that you have removed this huge weight from your shoulders and if this person loves you, they will appreciate your total honesty. This IS NOT the end of the world and you will NOT die from it.
