This book has helped me so much. I thought my partner and I were the only ones with herpes. This book made it clear that isn't true. I'm making my boyfriend read it now too.
My two favorite chapters ar "Telling a Partner" and "Treatment Options." Those two chapters alone saved me - I was too scared in the beginning to even talk to him and then this book helped me decide what medicine I should use.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

This is a must read for anyone looking for answers to the most frequently asked questions about HSV. The text is very informative, easy to read and understand.

This is good reference book for healthcare providers who dx and treat people with Herpes 2 (HSV2). I diagnose at least 2-3 new cases of HSV2 a week. My patients feel devastated by this initial diagnosis. My main resource is the CDC STD Tx Guidelines 2010 that provides the gold standard for medical/clinical treatment recommendations. I was looking for a resource that presented living with HSV on a more personal/emotional level. This book present the clinical and the emotional sides living with HSV2. I highly recommend this book to all health care providers and their patients.

This book helped me a lot! A fountain of information, and not just any information, information that I would say every person with living HSV, would find extremely informative and helpful! Also I got my book within 4 days of my order which was a plus!
