Sharing is caring

Today, I found out I have herpes. I'm 9 months pregnant and have only been with my husband. It just so happens that our roommate just got over herpes. I thought they were just spending time together, bonding. FML

Herpes can be transmitted via drinking glasses, plates, towels and other ways that dont need "Special contact". My aunt, a teacher, got it on her eyelids from rubbing them while correcting tests and homework sheets...

Once you have it you will always carry the virus but it will NOT always be active. Soo um... Yeah you can get over it but it is likley to come back.

This is however extremely unlikely, as in close to 0% in a healthy person. Much more likely for this to have happened because of cheating. Unfortunately the incidence of cheating increases when the partner is pregnant.

You can actually have herpes for years with no symptoms at all. That's why it's hard to trace where it came from. So it's possible that he may not have gotten it from your roommate.

you don't get over herpes. you have it forever. it can also be dormant for years and then pop up so don't assume your husband was cheating.

Men are as faithful as their opportunities. I am so sorry you will be having a cesarean birth now.

If you can’t afford to live without a roommate you can’t afford to have a child. No married couple should be living with roommates anyways

My husband and I have a roommate, not because WE can’t afford it, but because we are helping a friend who helped my husband when his ex wife booted him out of his house when he busted her in their bed cheating.

People live together for many reasons, some cultural, some financial, and some to do with convenience, either way you have no right to judge a situation you don’t understand.
