Sometimes herpes sores occur in places not covered by a condom.
In these cases, the condom is of little help, if any.
Here at The Hotline, we use the Power & Control Wheel* to describe most accurately what occurs in an abusive relationship.
While the inside of the wheel is comprised of subtle, continual behaviors, the outer ring represents physical, visible violence.
Partly as a result of these feelings, the first few outbreaks can cause a great deal of stress.
It may be important, therefore, to take additional steps.
