My doctor told me recently that sometimes herpes will just go away in around 10 years. I've also been living with Herpes 2 for a while and it's not really that big of a deal for me. I've never taken any pills, but I use a cream which shortens the time of an outbreak.

I have a heterosexual female friend that has recently been diagnosed with HIV- now that is some bad ass stuff, but even so- she's on the medication and feeling good. Her doctor said (as long as she takes the medication) she will live a normal life and she isn't having any side effects from the drugs. STD's aren't what they used to be when I was in my 20's.

Cancer is the thing to be scared of and it isn't even contagious so there is nothing you can do about it.
