i just been diagnosed with genitial herpes. i live with my daughter and my girlfriend which is the mother of my child. two months ago i noticed a blister on my penis after a day past by it got worst. one blister became three blisters. But my only problem with this is i only been sleeping with one person for quite sometime now and she doesn't have any symptom of the herpes virus. She doesn't know that i've been diagnosed with herpes yet because im trying to find out how i got this virus for i know that i never had unprotected sex with anyone besides my gurl and i dont sleep around at all. i haven't slept with anyone besides her since 2006 when we split for a few months, but even then i had a condom on. but its just now that im getting starting symptoms. can herpes be transmitted thru touching your gential area. i have a feew friends that get real bad blisters on their lips and sometimes, we'll share a cigarette and i can recall when his blister was at its peak and me, not knowing about herpes, i shared a cigarette with him but i dont get any break outs on my lips. for some reason i think that's how i got it. i thought about this hard and i can't think of anyone that i had unprotected sex with in the last 3 years besides my girlfriend. please someone help me with this. sooner or later i will have to tell my girlfriend and i dont know how to and im fear of rejection. im scared of loosing my family because of this.
