My Husband Has Genital Herpes!
My husband and I have been married for 20 years. We have two great kids, a nice house, a dog and up until recently I thought we were madly in love with each other.
About two months ago my husband found sores on his penis. At first he didn’t think too much about it because after a few days the sores disappeared. A couple of weeks later the sores came back in the same spot. To make a long story short, he went to his doctor, had some tests done and a few days later he was diagnosed with genital herpes.
I couldn’t believe it! I immediately had a herpes blood test and found out that I don’t have genital herpes.
The major problem that I’m having is that my husband will not admit how he got it. I know that he has been under a lot of stress from work and I suspect that he probably had an affair. But he simply will not admit it!
If he would just be honest and tell me the truth then we can begin the healing process and move on.
Please give me some advice! Hi KIm and Welcome to our site!
I'm going to give you a little tough love here. You need to do some homework and research before you start jumping to conclusions about your husband's fidelity.
Here are just a few facts:
1. People can have genital herpes for many years and not be aware of it.
2. People can get genital herpes from oral sex
3. Being diagnosed with genital herpes does not mean that your spouse cheated
4. 90% of the people who have genital herpes don't know it!
5. Genital herpes is not included in a typical STD testing panel
Now I'm not telling you that your husband didn't have an affair but rather I'm telling you that just because he has genital herpes doesn't automatically mean that he cheated.
If trust is an issue in your marriage then you've got bigger problems than herpes.
