I’d wait until you were ready to have genital contact and initiate the conversation prior. Do it in person so your partner can look you in the eyes and ask any questions.
And make sure you have your facts ready in case he’s curious.
You want to make it clear: this is a fact about you, and it’s something you have under total control. You can literally have this conversation after dinner or a movie while walking, so as not to make the situation feel too pressurized.
And while it’s not quite “Please pass the salt”, you can probably cover what you need to cover in just a few minutes, as opposed to a two-hour herpes summit. You have a handle on the disease and outbreaks are rare.I control it with medication, but no matter how you slice it, it is what it is.
