Our expert says:
Unfortunately it is true that there is no known medical cure for the Herpes viruses and such a virus can stay in your body indefinely, however outbreaks usually lessen in frequency and severity over time. There are also forms of antiviral medications that can be used to suppress or shorten outbreaks. You may experience out-breaks of blisters from time to time (as well as flu-like symptoms) and this is likely to be uncomfortable, especially during intercourse, however you can get symptomatic relief.
I wonder if you wouldn't benefit from learning more about Herpes from some of websites available (e.g. www.cdc.gov/std/herpes and www.herpes.org.uk)?
