I'm really sorry if this has already been posted someplace! This morning on Good Morning America during the news section, they mentioned a new vaccine for Genital Herpes. It only works on women though and only if you've never had a cold sore. Anyone else hear about this? I wonder why it only works for women!

Here ya go.

Not like we won't all have to wear condoms anyway (always be SAFE!!!), but any added protection is good.

darn...i've got the other simplex, oral herpes. I've had it since i was little, altho if you do the right things and take care of yourself it's really not much of a problem. If i keep my lips unchapped and don't get htem hit or cut I don't get them. i've had about two in the last four years, great when compared to how my lips were when i was little...i shudder to think about it
