Hi, I've just been diagnosed with genital herpes and don't know exactly what to do. The doctor gave me the correct medication but psicologicaly I'm devastated. My partner is being comprehensive and kind, but is also a little scared and anxious. He's gonna make an appointment in his gp asap to get tested and see if he's got the virus too. We always have protected sex but we never know. Can anyone who is dealing with this virus for longer than me help with tips about how to not panick? I'm very scared about developing another illness because of herpes, like cancer or something in my brain. Also, can i exercisd during an outbreak? Going to the gym etc?
Thank you very much for your help. Amanda.
