Dear HerpesNews, I hope you will print this because I think people need to know. I personally did not know anything about herpes. I had heard the word herpes, but I had no real idea of what it was. I had a simple life where I was pretty sure I didn’t need to know what herpes was.
Why pay for what you can get for free at the public clinic? Also, if you have a doctor and you have health insurance, why would you want to pay for a private testing lab? The truth is that there are lots of reasons why a person might want to use one of these “private anonymous herpes/STD testing services.”
Ranbaxy’s received initial approval from the FDA for their generic Valtrex on January 31, 2007. A lawsuit from GlaxoSmithKline, the original maker of Valtrex, followed. The lawsuit was settled in July of 2007. Part of the agreement was that Ranbaxy would begin to sell their generic Valtrex in 2009 under a 180 exclusivity agreement.
You CAN be sued for not telling someone you had herpes. 23 years of herpes lawsuits proves this. Starting in 1987, Let’s look over 23 years of herpes lawsuits.
For those who are unaware, there is a generic form of Valtrex (Valacyclovir Hydrochloride) available in the United States. Having just spoken to both CVS Pharmacy and Rite Aid Pharmacy on the phone, here is the price comparisons that I discovered.
You might think the last person you would want to make fun of for having herpes would be a “Mixed Martial Arts” (MMA) fighter. Such is not the case. It’s pretty refreshing to hear people actually talk about herpes… but what do you think about this conversation? The interviewer, Dave Farra, sure seems to be having fun at the expense of MMA fighter, Gray Maynard.
Here is how you can find a free herpes and STD testing clinic near you. Also, here are the pros and cons of these free public clinics.
I’m going keep this simple. You could put many hours into trying to understand the herpes tests, however sometime people just want to know “what test do most people get” or “which test is best?” If you have an open sore and you want to know if it’s herpes…
The premise of the article is that casual sex increases the risk of getting herpes and other STDs. Let’s do the math. Let’s say 4 people have sex twice a day with each other. All is “no strings attached” sex, also known as friends with benefits. If everyone in the group has been tested for herpes, and no one has herpes, then there is a 0% chance of spreading herpes.
A new report came out, and it seems to me that teenagers and adults have a lot in common when it comes to their ignorance about both herpes and STD’s. I think the reports showed that teens do exactly what people would expect from teens. (Especially, since most adults haven’t come anymore to grips with STD’s than teens have.) In short, teenagers are more worried about the social aspects of STD’s than they are the health aspects.
Eight years… Did their relationship continue when she finally told him? No, it didn’t. The woman’s worst fears proved true… or did they? How can you date someone for eight years, not tell them, and have it work out? Is that possible? In short, did the herpes cause the rejection… or the concealment cause the rejection?
On March 4th, 2010 BioVex issued a press release stating “BioVex initiates Phase 1 Clinical Trial with its genital herpes vaccine, ImmunoVEXHSV2.” What exactly does this mean for you? First, I want to say that I believe in maintaining a proper mindset and a proper perspective when it comes to herpes. Much of what we read and hear in the media is designed to play on people’s emotions.
In March of 2010 the New York Times said that 17% of all Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 have genital herpes. When it comes to statistics most people think, “Okay, but what does it mean for me?” What’s the point of knowing the statistics if you don’t know what they mean for you?
What are the rules of herpes? 80-90% of the adult population has HSV-1 and 20- 25% have HSV-2. People with herpes are the majority… yet few will admit it. Many have it and don’t even know. What are the rules of herpes? Society needs to set down the guidelines. What’s fair?
I’m all for treatments and cures. I’m all for anything that improves the quality of life and reduces the risk of anything that can be sexually transmitted. But what I learned long ago is that you don’t put your life on hold waiting for “some miracle cure” that may or may not be on the way. I’m not a skeptic… but…
What does it take to destroy trust… and a marriage? How well do you every really know another person? I’ve seen relationships turn on a dime. Sometimes a breach of trust can be so damaging that you can never look at the person the same way again. Sometimes you learn that you had simply wanted to see a person in a particular way and that in fact the person had told you in many ways exactly who they really were.
You know what herpes is, but do you know what “herpes gladiatorum” is? Herpes gladiatorum is caused by the herpes HSV 1 virus. Is herpes gladiatorum better than oral herpes… is it worse than genital herpes? Why? Why not?
