“This is an encouraging result for the core vaccine technology and provides us with the basis for not only progressing the Herpes therapeutic vaccine program, but also preparing the Human Papillomavirus vaccine for initial clinical studies as a therapeutic against HPV and Cervical Cancer,” chief executive officer Lee Rodne said.

I used to have a bf and we had sex all the time, even unprotected a lot and he never got anything.
And after us being broken up for a long time I've tried dating again and it is making me depressed.
none of them know about my herpes because then they would just be fake to my face about how they really feel about it. Ive tried dating sites for people with herpes and it never worked out and i could never find anyone in my area and everyone was at least 30 years older than me. keep trying until i find the right guy who accepts all of me? I have been going on dates, and after two - before the third - if they are great and I want to continue, then I tell them.
I feel like people are so unsympathetic and so undereducated about it. or should i just stay huddled away from dating all together because of what i have? " Usually" it's over text, or over the phone. I haven't really had any issues so far...mostly curiosity. your right some people are undereducated and unsympathetic, mostly because they're misinformed.
