  1. It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me
  2. So I have been getting pimples on my penis, 2 are chronic and do not move and react like a black head when squeezed, thin wormy thread of pus. Once in a while I will get a larger one midway up my shaft that can be more like a deep pimple under the skin that can pop. Happens about 3-4x a year. This does not hurt or crust over. The other day when cleaning my penis I noticed a rough patch under my forskin and found this small open wound. It alarmed me so I went to urgent care. After saying what I said above the practitioner said “that’s herpes” before seeing my penis. I later went to the VA urgen
  3. Hi everyone! Earlier this week I saw my doctor as I was experiencing some discomfort in my genital area... long story short I had unprotected sex, my doctor or did a physical examination and believed it is herpes. I received a call today advising that my blood came back negative for all STD’s and the sexual contact was made over 10 days ago. Rash is sores are still fresh. From what I’ve read false negatives do occur but that’s usually if the rash isn’t active... He put me on Valaciclovir on Monday (it’s now Thursday) and it appears to be getting worse. I am sceptical that

    Possible symptoms

    I just started getting upper and inner thigh pain and itching for the last week. It really hurts in the crease between my thighs. I am also having sharp stabbing pains that come and go all around my vagina and butt. My last possible exposure was in Sept and I was tested negative then but why am I having all these symptoms. I also saw a small white bump vaginally but it disappeared the next day so I couldn't have it swabbed. If anyone has any advice or share their symptoms
  5. It's been over four months since I have possible exposure. I was tested once and even had a vaginal biopsy. I keep getting shooting pains in different parts of my vagina. Now yesterday a red rash that looks like tiny bumps shown up and today a large bump showed up on the one side of my vagina. The large bump doesn't hurt but I'm so scared.
  6. Hi everyone, I just joined, and I've been feeling incredibly hopeless. I don't know where else to post to talk about my herpes/ cold sores, but I really need help. I feel so lonely and depressed about this. I've had herpes for 4 years, and the first two years, I was able to sort of "tame" it. I would get the usual herpes on the lips, twice a year, and then I would wait for it to scab and fall off. But two years ago, I had an incredibly stressful argument with my mom. We were full blown screaming at each other, and she wouldn't leave me alone even after the argument was over, it was so, so bad.
  7. Hi everyone. I am still waiting on bloodwork, but the doc immediately told her nurse "this is definitely herpes" during my extremely painful examination. I do not yet know which type, but it is inside of my labia and inside my buttcrack below my anus. I went in because I thought I had a few veginal tears and an ingrown hair after a bit of rough sex. The man I believe to have contacted it but from has said he hasn't ever had any sores or reason to believe he has HSV, but my symptoms began 7 days after our first (of 4 total) nights of sex. He had since gone to the doctor who is skeptical
  8. Hey, I’m a 28 year old black female and I just was diagnosed with HSV type 2! The bad part about is that the doctor can’t give me a timetable for when he thinks I could have contracted it!! I am a survivor of sexual assault twice, once when I was six and again at the age of 21!! It hurts even worse now because I don’t even know where to start!! I feel like I’m being punished for something I did in my past life or something!! How am I supposed to date or just tell my next partner what I have and risk them leaving me, talking about me, or even harming me because of what I could expose them to!!

    Newly diagnosed & heartbroken

    Hi, I’m new here just like my diagnosis with herpes. I got it off someone who I’ve known for 10 years... we always had something between us but it was always bad timing and we were just children. Everything was amazing until I found out. I know it was him who’d given it to me as I had been tested before we had sex. Telling him was also the hardest thing I had to face apart from knowing I have to live with this condition. My doctor believes he’s asymptomatic which means I’m the lucky one who’s caught this and has to feel these sores. And fuck sakes this is so painful. I’m j
  10. I´m adding to pics : one from wednesday Dec 5th and today Monday Dec 10th. Went to consultation and doctor gave me a prescription right away : with local aciclovir and valtrax . I haven´t get my blood lab or swab test yet. I´m still confused the way internet explain how herpes symptomps are, and all of these does not applied to me. this appear a day after having sex with my boydriend and that night we didnt even practice oral sex. 2 days before I shave with an old razor and the hair still short. I know it could be herpes and I´m accepting it but there´s many pics and symptoms o
  11. Shaved with old clippers 3 weeks ago not sure if this is infected hair follicles or a herpes ob it only becomes irrated some after masturbation plz help I’m a male btw
  12. Hi guys, I joined late 2014 when I had an outbreak of what was diagnosed clinically as herpes but tests came back negative. I had a horrendous fever for two week with huge painful ulcerated craters in my vagina. The first doctor told me I had syphilis! Then I went to a sexual health clinic where she said it was incredibly bad herpes. The whole thing was awful and nothing relieved the symptoms until the ulcers cleared up completely which took around a month. As I said the tests came back negative. Now four years later, almost exactly to the day weirdly enough I’ve noticed a white h
  13. I haven't check out all of this site; however I cannot see how reducing stigma over herpes infection should involve denial. It states on their website people shouldn't be scared for rare circumstances but fails to admit that this virus can be transmitted via objects in some circumstances. https://herpes.org.uk/towels-not-problem/ PLEASE IF YOU HAVE A LESS THAN USUAL EXPERIENCE LET THESE PEOPLE KNOW THEY DO NOT REPRESENT YOU. MOST PROFESSIONALS DOESN'T MEAN ALL.

    Well… here I am.

    Hi everyone. I’m still trying to process this but I am a gay male in my late 20’s that was recently diagnosed with HSV-2 in October 2018. I haven’t been sexually active since 2015 and have only engaged in sexual activity with four people in my life. I’m feeling a lot of emotions because of this; sad, angry, confused, violated, ect. Thoughts like who would’ve thought someone like little ole me, compared to all of the VERY promiscuous people in the world, would end up with Genital Herpes ESPECIALLY when I’ve been abstinent and just focusing on myself for years. That was a gunshot to my soul
  15. It's been three months since possible exposure. Last night a shooting pain inside my vagina woke me up. I feel the constant urge to urinate and have thigh and butt pain on and off. Today I kept having pain in one spot inside my labia and now it's all red and I see a tiny red spot. It doesnt hurt to touch but there is red and pain along the inside of my vagina. I go to the doctors tomorrow to get retested. I feel like no doctor wants to help me and don't really listen. It's so scary and frustrating.

    Wondering if anyone in Brooklyn is interested in chatting? Meeting up? Or just share info about OB management, lifestyle tips, support groups etc. I'm brand new to this & looking for some connections to help me (& others like me) not feel so alone.
  17. Hey, I have been effective by herpes simplex virus for 21 days. And l still have the pain and lesion. I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago, she said that ”is getting better, there is no lesion in the area. ” and l had sex with my boyfriend while using a condom. After that l got the pain and lesions again. Last night l checked and l didn't see any lesions and didn't feel any pain and we thought it's gone. We had sex and now l have the pain again. My question is when l get rid of this pain and lesions? Is it bad to have sex before lesions still in there even l barely see them? Also, my per

    Shocked by gHSV1 diagnosis

    A few weeks ago I thought I felt a yeast infection coming on. It made sense because I had a throat infection ( which appeared to be strep but tested but negative — could this be related?) a few weeks prior and started but didn’t finish amoxicillin since the strep came back negative. So I was in a ton of pain, 3 days of Monistat and nothing, so I call my primary care to get something and she says “could it be herpes?” I said no way, there are no bumps, just discharge, and itching, pain around the clitoris, plus I’m just thinking of how long I’ve been with my BF. So she prescribed me something a
  20. I just found out I have both HSV 1 and HSV 2. I am completely in shock! I wanna say I’ve had symptoms but they were on my genitals and only appeared to be razor bumps to me because they weren’t painful just slight uncomfortable. I would also get cysts down there only after shaving and they would only last a couple days. Here is what I know. The test was IgG and tested for both separate I believe. On the index Herpes 1 is >5.00 and Herpes 2 is 1.27. I’m so confused because I’ve never had obvious symptoms and tested positive for BOTH. Do you believe these tests are accurate. Thi
  21. I just got diagnosed with genital herpes (idk which type) this August-september ish. I’ve been on Valacyclovir for almost 2 months now, but i still experience itching, & weird discharge, which i think may be caused by an outbreak. Any suggestions on what i can do?
  22. Hello, im new here & ive been diagnosed with herpes 1 on my genitals today. For about 4 days the symptoms were getting worse to the point where i knew i had it. Swollen vagina, lesions that were wet looking & oozing yellow watery fluid. I could hardly walk & still cant. The pain is horrendous. Anyway, to my question. Im very confused, & i know there is no way i can tell who i got it off. After my 4 year relationship, i was saddened & i wanted to do anything to get my mind off him. Less then a year later, i began seeing a guy in march this year. We had a sexual relationship,
  23. Hi All, New here and was recently diagnosed with ghsv-1 six weeks ago. Sort of coping, good days and bad days as expected and going through the motions as everyone does. Did anyone experience health anxiety when they got the news? I'm barely sleeping knowing that my body can't fight this off and worrying that I will catch an additional or more serious illness in the future I'm getting the oddest sensations all over my body too and the anxiety makes it worse. I caught this with low chances (with a condom and the guy was on suppressive meds) so I guess I'm feeling 'unlucky
  24. I recently noticed a red rash inside the opening of my vagina. It painful to the touch and I see a small flesh colored bump all of sudden. I'm freaking out since I can't get to the doctor til Tuesday. I also have white gray discharge. What kind of symptoms did you have during first ob?
