Single Herpes
Single Herpes's relationship to PositiveSingles.com is very obvious, as the two sites are practically clones of one another. If you have not read our excellent review of Positive Singles, check it out now. Single Herpes uses the same set up, just with a different group of beautiful smiling people staring at you from the home page. Single Herpes is geared a bit more toward being a dating site for genital herpes as opposed to an STD community, so if your goal is to date or hook up with Herpes, it is definitely worth a look.

STD Friends
STD Friends is touted as a simple and fun atmosphere for singles with STDs from around the world to meet for everything from long term relationships to finding new pen pals. From our look-around, it appeared that the forum was very inactive, with questions in the feedback section going unanswered. The events section appeared to be full of spam when we looked. There are some articles about STDs, but beyond that the resources don't really compare to Positive Singles. The site seems to be somewhat unmonitored overall. There were evidently over 38,000 members as of  the writing of our review, but given the amount of inactivity in some areas of the site we were left wondering just how many of those profiles are actually "real" people.  Our recommendation:  Use at your own risk.

Common herpes drug can treat HIV.

A treatment for genital herpes has shown an ability to reduce HIV levels in herpes-free patients, according to a study just announced by the government.

Valacyclovir is commonly used to control the virus that causes genital herpes, but researchers in Cleveland, Atlanta and Peru have discovered it also has an effect on the virus that causes AIDS, the March 13 release from the National Institutes of Health says.

After testing the drug on 18 patients who had HIV, but not genital herpes, researchers found that the presence of herpes was not necessary for the drug to reduce HIV levels.

An NIH scientist behind the study called the results "very encouraging."

"If valacyclovir's effectiveness against HIV can be confirmed in a larger cohort, it could be added to the mix of drugs used to suppress the virus, and might prove especially helpful in cases in which HIV has developed resistance to other drugs," Leonid Margolis, who was senior author of the study, said in a statement.
