Our expert says:
Herpes Simplex is a STI that you could be infected with for a long time before it may show itself. It is similar to the 'blisters'you get on your mouth - sometimes it gives you trouble and then disappear for a time. This is because your immune system can suppress the symptoms. Your doctor gave you the correct information. Hope you screened for HIV as a preventative strategy. Always have protected sex. Deidre - SASHA
