Frequently Asked Questions on herpes and popular conversations

Hi all you H Opportunists!

So there have been many patterns of questions that are asked, and many get asked a lot. I'm going to start compiling Frequently Asked Questions here as they come up. As I have time, I'll be going back through old posts and consolidating those that have common themes. Hopefully that will help everyone!

Great overviews of all the things you need to know!
