    Hi Cece,

    Thanks for the question. Herpes typically does not manifest that way with a sex partner. I am not a physician and so I would direct you and/or your partner to a local clinic or health department. You can also call the toll-free 24 hour STD/HIV hotline at 1-800-232-4636. Be safe.

    I think this is likely part of the issue. A recent Poz magazine survey identified factors why people delay treatment, the top reasons included things like, ‘not feeling sick at the moment,’ ‘not knowing who to see for HIV care,’ and the number one reason was ‘feeling ashamed and embarrassed about having HIV.’

    Agreed. It gives “family planning” a whole new meaning. It’s critical to consider the sexual partner today could be a co-parent in 9 months. Plan accordingly.

    Good points Kevin, I wonder about liability if the “wrong results” are publicized. Where is the liability then? Do we want to be a nation with less or more control over our medical content?

    Phil you make some great points. All of us have value and deserve respect. We need have laws and policies that reflect this as well. Racism is real, explicit and subtle just like sexism, homophobia,etc. We must do better in protecting each other and valuing each other. It’s the American way it should be.

    Thanks Marlon. It’s disturbing but I can understand that so many brothers have so many “strikes against them”— poverty, drugs, crime-ridden communities, unemployment, baby-mama drama, poor self esteem/self-worth…along with a society that BOTH elevates the black man via the election of Barack Obama and yet personally demonizes him to the point of reinforcing that black males are systematically de-valued even when you are president…all of this contributes to brothers wanting to just “not deal with another issue” and while it’s painful, it’s understandable from a mental stress perspective.
