During infection it is advisable to take complete blood rest and only after recovery you can resume  your fitness activities.

I guess having herpes/HIV/HPV or other STDs is not the end of the world. I'm living with genital herpes for 2 years. Honestly, I was upset and think my sex life was over.

Later I found This site was created to help people find useful, up-to-date information about prevention and cure for herpes, HPV, HIV, find safe dating with STDs. I know there are currently 33 million people living with HIV in the world. Having STDs is not the end of the world.
