After my first time having sex with my boyfriend, I was diag

After my first time having sex with my boyfriend, I was diagnosed with GHSV1. We haven't had sex since and it's been about 6 months. I'm scared that sex will cause an outbreak and I think I'm just scared of sex in general because of the aftershock so to speak after my first time. Any advice?

It is possible that the friction from sex can cause an outbreak but really that is going to be a Suck.it and see scenario. has your boyfriend got herpes did you get it from him? what do you mean that you're scared of having sex because of the aftershock?

He has oral herpes and incidentally (though it was not our first time having oral sex) he gave it to me the first time we had sex. And the aftershock was the primary outbreak which not only put a lot of stress on my body but also on my relationship. Thank you for your help
