Herpes and your relationship You and your partner will need to have open, honest communication about herpes so you can work together to prevent transmission. Your partner will need to feel comfortable telling you when he or she feels an outbreak coming on. Your relationship may benefit as you talk and establish trust. On the other hand, if you aren't sure about the relationship, or you are uncomfortable with the risk, consider delaying intimacy for a while. Get to know your partner better, and give yourself time to adjust to the idea of herpes.

Get to know your partner better, and give yourself time to adjust to the idea of herpes. There is no need to rush into a decision. Keep in mind that all relationships face challenges, many far tougher than herpes. Good relationships stand or fall on far more important issues -- including communication, respect, and trust. Safer Sex Practices: Practice non-coital sex (sexual intimacy without penetration). Use your imagination, there are all kinds of ways to have fun! Just make sure to avoid touching or kissing the affected area when there is any sign of an outbreak (including itching or tingling).

A new final-stage study of the vaccine is planned to be launched, that will involve 7,550 women aged 18 to 30 around the United States. If the new tests bear out the existing study results, the vaccine could be available in about five years, said Lawrence Stanberry of the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, who led the study, published in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine. Other herpes vaccines are currently being investigated and it is felt that an effective vaccine may be available in 3-5 years.
