Because HPV 16 may not cause outer symptoms but it causes cancer if left unchecked. As most of us caught what we had by not sleeping around, but from someone we were in a committed relationship with who we trusted. How is having an ailment as common as a cold gross? It’s uneducated people like you who publish lame stories such as this that cause such misconceptions about a simple virus that millions of people have. because one day you no you are going to have to tell them.You people have NO IDEA how you can easily catch it. ignorance is why people who do have it are afraid to come out and be honest about it!!! so how do i meet a nice lady that may have it to and we dont have to say we have it.Derek’s most famous sexual conquest include Mariah Carey, Jessica Alba, Vanessa Minnillo and most recently Jessica Biel. ” […] but what the fuck is this an ad for an energy drink or Valtrex?! alone who have HSV2, the virus that causes genital outbreaks, and 90% don’t even know they have the virus…so before you say how gross it is…get a blood test to see if you have room to be talking.And speaking of Valtrex now that it comes out that Jessica Alba has herpes I might need to hook up a prescription because I imagined hitting that so often I probably got that […] How many of you arrogant f*cks have a clue about the disease? If you’ve ever had a cold sore, then you too have a form of herpes. As far as I know, you can’t get herpes from jacking off, so who cares whether Jessica has it or not? at least she’s using the valtrex to stop from spreading the virus (unlike the jerk who infected her apparently.) I was infected the same way, By a jerk who knew he had it and never told me.I would have rather gotten away with herpes than HPV because I now have complications with cervical cancer. Put it this way, the one you turn away because they may/may not have herpes, will be the reason why the next person u try to get involved with will be the one to burn you.As for the other people on this forum who have herpes, consider yourselves extremely lucky. =) do some research before you start rambling on about a disease that is just as common as the common cold… like someone gave it to me but its hard to meet someone that you like and may want to hang out with or whatever.If you think you may have it, get tested as the treatments out there will provide you with a world of relief. The truth is though that anyone worth dating won’t back out because of something so small.
But the most important thing is accepting that something in ur life has change, but not You. wow having herpes is not fun, people are so quick to judge (i kno cause i was like that before i got it), i just wish there was a way to educat America a little better on ur health issues.
It is no more disgusting than being a critical piece of sh#t with the arrogant insinuation that your lips could never suffer the same…. She still looks hot, and 99.99% of men who fantasize about her will never even get to meet her, and they can still jack off to her pictures w/o fear of contracting anything. He too is from hollywood (television industry, not film). i have no problem dating people mature enough to know/ understand that its really not a big deal! i hate that people think its so gross, its really not! Everyone is right about the stigma…i used to think it was gross too!
The story, though highly judgmental and poorly informed, does underline the importance of using protection when engaging in sexual activity. I can honestly say, I have genital herpes, and you should be ashamed of yourself for judging people who have it, especially since none of us ASKED to be infected, but instead were either victims of people who didn’t have the decency to inform us, or by partners who didn’t even know themselves. 99% of the time i forget i have it because everyone is right, it IS symptomless! i used to watch the valtrex commercials and snicker and poke fun at them… its not the end of life…life is what you make of it.
I dont sleep around, and i used condoms and still got it from someone i was in love with!! If jessica alba really does have it, then i say “you go girl” cause she hasnt let it affect her life…which no one should.
anyone reading this who is down on themselves, please keep your chin up… The stigma will subside as most of the population will find out they have it.
