Dating someone with an std
That's why doctors recommend that people who are having sex (or who have had sex in the past) get tested regularly for STDs. If you can't answer all of your partner's questions, that's OK.
So what do you do if your test comes back positive? But to protect your partner (and avoid any future embarrassment), it's a conversation you need to have. If you have an STD, it's normal to be nervous about telling someone new. Here are some ideas for handling the conversation: Try imagining that your roles are reversed. Say you don't know and then go to a health clinic or search online together to learn more.

Many couples manage for years without infecting the other partner. However, since you’ve already blabbed to family and friends that this girl has Herpes, I suggest you leave her alone. Your reaction is the reason why people are afraid to admit they have Herpes. 60% of the people who have genital Herpes don’t know that they have it and they are running around spreading it! Go get a Herpes blood test to see if you have HSV-1 (oral) or HSV-2 (genital) antibodies. You can take antiviral medication which will reduce your viral load to a negligible level, so that you cannot infect anyone.
