*hugs* I feel very sorry for what you are going through. Please don't worry, you are not the only one who has contracted Herpes,

What is most important, is that you learn how to live hygienically , to avoid that you infect your child. But maybe also in general learning how to live a safe lifestyle to get avoid you get into trouble in the first place. Life is full of dangerous things and people, and it might be overkill to say it, but you want to stay away from those things and people who can give you irreparable damage and hurt for your own safety.

For now however, focus on how to live, and how to emotionally heal from your Herpes virus.

You cannot give genital herpes to your child be assured of that. Maybe some counselling is needed with all you have been through. Dont think no one will want you. Do you think all the other people with ghsv are single. Plus there are dating sites for positive people. But until you date dont make assumptions
