How to Live and Love with a Chronic STD, by Charles Ebel and Anna Wald, MD, MPH
Half a million Americans are infected with genital herpes each year, and for many, the dianosis is shattering. "How do I tell my partner?" "Will I be able to have healthy children?" "Will there ever be a cure?" are among the many questions people ask as they consider the changes herpes might bring to their lives.
This book provides a reassuring, balanced perspective on the medical and emotional issues surrounding herpes, including:
- TREATMENT OPTIONS
- TELLING YOUR PARTNER
- IMPACT ON SEXUALITY
- LONG-TERM RELATIONSHIPS
- VACCINE RESEARCH
"Charles Ebel brings an appreciation for the emotional aspects of genital herpes typically lacking in authoritative books. Drawing on his experience with individuals through the Herpes Resource Center, he has addressed the topics of most concern and relevance. Anyone embarking on the journey toward adjustment and acceptance of genital herpes should have this invaluable resource."... Cal Vanderplate, Ph.D.
