    Newly Diagnosed & Depressed

    On Feb 10, I slept with somebody new. I specifically asked him if he had been tested for HSV and HIV via blood test. He told me he had just been tested two months ago and everything was negative and he hadn’t slept with anybody in a year. He either lied to me about being tested or lied about his status. I believe he knew he had HSV2, was not taking antivirals, and didn’t care if he infected me. Now he is using it to make me feel like I HAVE to stay with him because we both have this. And he is minimizing it. I am in pain, depressed, having suicidal thoughts (don’t think I’d act on th

  3. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and I joined because I am feeling shitty. I was diagnosed 8 years ago and I contracted it from my then boyfriend who became my husband. He did not tell me he was infected, I doubt he even knew but I am angry now because I found it that he was cheating on me. We are currently going through a divorce and it makes me afraid that I won’t find someone who won’t scorn me. My mood is fine as long as I don’t have an outbreak but as soon as I have one I get depressed, I feel dirty, feel hopeless and it keeps me awake at night. I am so frustrated and I ke

    Newly diagnosed and alone

    Hello all, I’m a female and was just diagnosed GHSV 1 and I’m devastated. I really need someone to talk to about their experience. I’m at the end of my rope with general practitioners and their horrible bedside manner. If one more person spits a statistic at me or dismisses the psychological pain I’m going through, I’m going to lose my mind. Cannot see a psychologist for another week. Seems like nothing will ever be the same. Please help me.
  5. Im 19, I don't know how this happened but it did. I have not got my results back but I am 110% positive i have herpes. There are bumps lesions and open wounds everywhere, and i show all symptoms. At first I was very suicidal on the fact that I could be HSV2 positive but my mom calmed me down.she told me, it is what it is, and that I can still manage to have a normal life despite this. Im very scared as of right now. Im over the fact that it is herpes but i am in terrible pain. I can't sit i can't lay down i can't stand, walk or move. I had to sleep sitting up last night. I am scared to go pee
  6. Hello people well let me start by saying I've suspected that I've had HSV for years now me and my wife. But I've been to afraid to come to her with it. She's had fever blisters as she calls them and she gets huge painful bumps and clusters of blisters at the top of her butt crack and she has major irritation down there often. Which makes me believe we have it. I dont usually get anything but itching and as of lately I have irritation inside my penis and on the head but never had an outbreak. Well I had an encounter with a sex worker I used a condom but for some reason she decided to put l

    Desperate for advice!!!

    Hi all, I'm desperate for advice as someone newly diagnosed who made a silly decision. Please don't judge, just hear me out. Following the first sexual encounter with someone I have been dating, I starting feeling weird down below. I had had a Hollywood wax 2 days before I had sex, so I attributed it to this, until it got worst. I went to the sexual health clinic convinced I had picked up some kind of infection from the waxing , but was diagnosed with HSV 1. To say that I was devasted was an understatement. I knew I had to disclose to my recent partner as I am sure that he had
  8. this just surfaced and i constantly look at pictures on the internet of herpes and like they look nothing like what ive seen on the internet. can someone please help me? im so nervous and its been making me wanna cry. im so scared and i just dont know what to do
  9. I just got what I am calling first OB last week. I'm stunned, depressed, sick... list goes on and on. Had several partners before marriage .. been married for 15 years. I've never cheated. Don't think he's cheated or he even was with anyone before me. But I wouldn't bet my life on any one other my own actions. But he's a pretty good guy and promises he has not. I'm in so much pain, I can't breath hardly. Dr says it's for sure herpes. I am awaiting test results. Started Valtrex. I can't even hardly look at my husband now. He's being so sweet and worrried about me but I

    Please help , I was diagnosed with herpes type 2 less than 2 days ago and I have not stopped crying since. I am 18 years old and I feel like I have ruined my whole life. The stigma attached to this is so bad that I am also ashamed of myself I can’t look at myself in the mirror without hating myself. I cannot bare to tell anyone and fear that I may never have another relationship because who’s going to want me now ??

    The first is the worst, right?

    Hard to know where to start. Hi, I've been newly diagnosed, still waiting on the swab cultures to come back as to what type. I am taking valacyclovir 1gm twice a day. I came down with strep that I caught from taking care of my daughter. I thought I had a bad yeast infection prior to this and when the strep started, so did these little ulcers. Just one on each labia. Man, did they burn when I had to pee. What the heck, never had anything like that before. Must have been from the yeast infection, maybe the skin is raw? My throat was swelling to the point I couldn't swallow my saliva, I sta

    emotional wreck

    I recently discovered what looked like a small canker sore inside my vagina by the opening, I wouldn’t have noticed it if it weren’t for the sex I had almost 2 weeks ago. I noticed it burned when I peed after the encounter and I went home the next morning and looked in a mirror and saw the lesion. I have been active with this guy on and off for over two years and i’m so deeply in love with him. I have unknowingly given him chlamydia once before and he forgave me and understood it happens though he was pissed at first. I have been with one other guy this semester and we used protection but I am
  13. I just gotta say that I absolutely hate some people out there. I have been reading some forums on reddit, honeycomb and others. So many of you people want to believe that your risk to transmit is so low or non existent because of pills or the years you have had this bullS*it virus, and especially the asymptomatic ones. BULLSH*T !!!!! You do infect people and you need to do other people the service of not screwing their life over by giving them a fair chance. I was infected but a real estate lawyer in Denver. This B*tch lied about her age by 10 years, saying she was 43 years old a
  14. PLEASE READ!! NEED ADVICE!!! I think I have herpes but the doctor says I have nothing to worry about!! I dated a guy for 2 years, we broke up and he had sex with a girl, who had sex with a guy, who has sex with a girl that 100% has herpes. Although I'm not sure, I believe the virus had been transmitted to all of the people involved. After my ex had sex with the girl who potentially has herpes, I slept with him (this may have been close to a month after they had sex). When I had sex with him after he slept with her, it was unprotected and I had noticed a small sore on his penis that was bleedin
  15. Hey, so, I am not technically newly diagnosed but every once in a while I come back to this deep, dark place. A little background: August 2015 came back to my home country from a year overseas. After coming back I met a man I had been chatting with. Before even agreeing to meet him (it was for potential intimate/relationship reasons) I asked him to get tested for STIs. I had also gotten tested because I would never ask something of someone I wasn't comfortable doing myself. I came back clean as did he. I didn't realize herpes was not part of standard testing, and

    Feeling heart broken

    Hello. It's been a month since I was diagnosed with genital herpes. I was in a long distance relationship and ended up having to break up with my bf because after I found out her started treating me horribly. Everytime I would try to talk about it he would ignore me, we were planning to be married so this has been hard on me. I believe he had it without knowing and passed it on to me and felt guilty. He never confirmed and never went to the doctor. My heart is still so broken, I feel disgusting and still in shock over what has happened. Im trying so hard to do things that make me happy but the
  17. Hi, I was just recently diagnosed with Herpes II. I got it from my boyfriend who didn't know he had it. I'm very depressed about it. I don't know who to talk to. i'm looking for support and someone to tell me that life goes on. Its hard for me to wake up in the morning. Im scared no one will ever love me. :'(

    Accepting diagnosis

    I've had hsv for about a year now, but only diagnosed since January. Though it's been almost 9 months since being told I was infected, I cannot accept it or move past the depression it has caused me. I struggled with depression for years and I was getting better and now no matter how much I try to ease my mind I can't.. the only time I'm not unhappy about this is when I'm distracting myself and trying not to think about it, but the emotions can only be bottled up so long until I can't hold them in anymore.. this cycle has been going on since. I feel my life is over. I can never live normally a
  19. I recently was diagnosed with HSV2 just before my 18th birthday, happy birthday to me right? The emotional toll the diagnosis has taken on me has been severe and I feel so alone. I've searched high and low for a support group consisting of people who share similar relatable experiences, but most of the time there's a huge age difference. I'm making this thread seeking people age 16-24 to befriend and find companionship within. I know dealing with this diagnosis can be tough, but it's much more comforting when you have people who support and care for you.

    It's been less than 24 hours

    I believe I may have had my first outbreak 6 weeks ago when I thought I had a cut on my vagina, but also felt very ill. I have a boyfriend. He's never displayed any symptoms and he's told me he's clean. I know this virus can be transmitted asymptomatically, and he's had a lot of sexual partners (no protection) in the past. He's joked about being lucky. He recently said he'd kill himself if he got genital herpes. He's had a serious suicide attempt last year. I think he may have given it to me....I'm scared to tell him. I can't sleep or eat. I'm just crying. I know there's l

    struggling and discouraged

    Hi, anyone who has read my posts knows that I am usually very positive and supportive of members having a difficult time. But for the last couple of days I feel so completely overwhelmed, depressed and taken over by the outbreaks. Every time I think I am getting my symptoms under control they seem to get worse again. The itching was beyond terrible, and has now again turned to pain. Particularly in the skin area right above my clitorous. I am trying so very hard to fight the urge to give up...but it just never stops. I'm on antivirals...two a day of Valtrex, lysine two to four a day, go

    suicidal thoughts

    I don't even know where to begin...I was recently daignosed with HSV1 & 2. l feel so disgusted with myself over one stupid mistake that shouldve never happened. The pain is unbearable, i cant eat, i cant sleep, i even force myself not to go to the bathroom because of how painful it is. I can barely walk, I have called out of work, and have even missed class. Nothing can get any worse right now. IM 20 YEARS OLD AND CAUGHT AN UNCURABLE DISEASE. Ever since I found out I have been extremely depressed and cannot stop thinking about it. I cannot talk to anyone about it, not even my roommates

    Overwhelmed with emotion

    I dont even know where to start with this. Today I was diagnosed with HSV1. But before the results came I suspected for a while that it couldve beenn a possibility but actually hearing it made my world turn upside down. I have not stopped crying all day. Im scared to tell anyone about it. Can't tell my friends, my parents, my roommates, not anyone. Holding all of this in is killing me but at least I found somewhere to vent. The pain is unbearable. I cannot walk, sit, sleep, not even eat because going to the bathroom hurts like hell. It feels as if there are needles and knives when I got to the

    I'm feeling blue

    Hey everyone out there, I guess I don't know where to start on this, or if I should even be on here, but here I am anyway. I wanted to reach out about this, and was suggested to find a support place like this by my counselor, which is why I'm here. There is no easy way for me to say this, I contracted HSV 1 and 2, from being molested by my uncle. And ever since I have been depressed, and felt pretty disgusted with myself. Even more so after this diagnosis My parents know, legal action has been taken, and a bunch of other things I wish I didn't have to be involved in happened. I've not been dea
