      Hi, I am so scared now. I met a prostitute eight days ago. She had rubbed my penis with her labia(lips of vagina). Then we had vaginal sex and oral sex with condom. Is it possible for me to get HSV? What is the chance? I had felt penis head pain and itchy for a few days, now my bladder and urethra are pain. My buttocks occasionally feel itchy. I also had mild fever a few days ago for 4-5 days and  a prolonged sore throat till now. Please help! I am extremely panic these few days...

      If you do have it they will give you some meds to stop the outbreak but what is also good for it too in to keep you from having outbreaks is olive leaf extract just order it online or pick it up at a store

      So I got told today by a doctor I likely have genital herpes (tests aren't back yet but doc says it looks like it). Three days ago I had sex for the first time with a man I'd only very recently started dating and I feel very stupid now for not being more careful. Problem is, I was so nervous about sex I didn't even notice at first that he wasnt using a condom and I'm upset he didn't even ask me if that was ok. After I realized, I told him no and we proceeded with just oral but I feel like an idiot that I didn't even think of getting STD' s from that. I got a few tiny spots in my mouth a day afer sex and then bumps in my vagina two days after. He assured me he'd been tested for STD' s and was clean but since herpes isn't part of the standard tests maybe he doesn't know. I think my breakout is very mild; nothing hurts and the bumps haven't turned into sores or anything. I'm meeting with him soon to tell him what has happened and ask him if he knew or not.  I guess I just want to hear from people who have been diagnosed, how you got through it and any tips you have. I'm a 22 year old female who obviously still wants to be part of the dating scene. If this guy genuinely doesn't know he has herpes I would consider continuing dating him. Has anyone been in a similar situation?

      Hi guys!!! It's coming up to a year since I contracted HSV2  and what a terrific day that was... Things have come a long way since then and I've managed to keep my OB's under control etc., but tbh it's still a constant psychological battle everyday. However, this might be down to the fact that I'm only 22 and I haven't had a relationship since my diagnosis.  Anyway, I come here to ask what oral HSV2 symptoms would be, if there are any? Since my diagnosis I have developed a clicky neck, crackling and clicky ears, tinnitus, dizziness and strange sensations that radiate from my ears out towards my neck, side of my face and the back of my head. All the symptoms are exacerbated when I drink alcohol (sometimes even one glass!) and I feel like I can't breathe due to my nose becoming stuffy and suddenly feel very heady and dizzy.     I've seen a ear, throat and nose specialist who said I have no infection or fluid in my ears as well as no signs of sinus issues. So it must be more internal?! These symptoms have been ongoing for months now. I'm not stressed and everything par having herpes is amazing in my life! So I come to my own conclusion that it could be herpes related.   Three months into my diagnosis I remember I accidentally scratched the inside of my nose after touching my sores down there. I also remember a huge spot appearing inside my ear not shortly after.  I didn't think anything of this but now I'm questioning whether this has anything to the symptoms affecting my ears, nose, neck and head.  I'm absolutely tired of these symptoms as they affect my concentration and focus at work, plus I can't enjoy a nice drink with my friends without feeling like I can't breathe.  I really would appreciate any advice or hear of similar experiences you might of had.  All the best, Jude
