thanks for your reply,however my confusion is that we have been very sexually active with eachother since october 2008 yet she has only had the virus for around six weeks,why would it take two and a half years for them to appear? we havent changed the way we make love in that time,i havent had any other partner and i trust her totally ,so why the delay?
