    New Diagnosis: Gential HSV1

    Hello all, So a week after I noticed my first symptoms around my anus and made a post about it, I just got my swab test back positive for HSV1. Thanks to everyone who responded to my original post. I'm in a really good place right now, on the tail end of a painful outbreak. But now that I have a diagnosis, I'd love to hear other people's experiences about having HSV1 in their genital area. Specifically: I've heard HSV1 outbreaks are less frequent than HSV2. Is this the case? Is anyone on suppressive therapy for HSV 1? I had pretty major blisters up and down my right leg over the past week--is this something anyone else has experienced? When is it safe to have sexual contact after an outbreak? Anything else you wish you'd known! ESPECIALLY if there are other gay men out there with a similar diagnosis. Thanks again for creating such a wonderful, supportive community. I thank you in advance for your help! Best,
  2. Hey everyone, New member here with a concern. I'm a gay male who bottomed for a guy the other day (bareback). It was quite rough, and so I didn't think much of the soreness the next day. But three days later, there's still soreness around my anus area. Looking in a hand mirror yesterday I noticed what look like open sores. They didn't develop from blisters (as far as I could see). Picture is linked here. Let me know what you think. I'm very worried, obviously, and would love to hear from people who've had symptoms looking similar. Is there anything else it could be? Thank you,

    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. It’s crazy that I’ve ALWAYS done regular STD testing, thinking I was negative for everything only to find out that Herpes was never included in my testing because I never knew you had to literally ask for that until this year. The CDC and medical industry is so fucked up and wrong for that. I’ve always used protection, except with my first boyfriend but that was back in 2009-2010 and a condom broke with a sexual encounter I had back in 2011 and I remember immediately putting a new one on him. Unfortunately, all of the men I’ve dealt with sexually are questionable. Half of me wants to know who gave this to me but the other half is like what’s the point. I only have access to contact three of them (I don’t know where the other guy is) but I haven’t spoken to two of them in years, one of them in a whole decade and it would be pretty awkward for me years later to write them a message about herpes. My first boyfriend and I are cordial but he’s still immature so it would be very awkward with him. Anyways, as I’ve been thinking and backtracking my life, I would think I caught this back in 2011 because I remember my anus itching so badly but I thought it was just my hair growing back because I do recall shaving before having sex so I guess that was my first outbreak. Other times I would just get a minor itch in and on my buttocks but I never would’ve thought herpes. I’ve never got outbreaks on my penile area. This is all still confusing and baffling to me. I’m still sad and feeling like my future love life was taken from me. I feel like part of my confidence was taken from me. I don’t even feel comfortable flirting and finding people attractive right now. I’m just releasing my thoughts about my situation but I do have questions. My results also came back saying I had extremely low Vitamin D deficiency; does HSV-2 have something to do with that? Is there a test I could take to tell me exactly when I contracted this virus? This question may be TMI but I masturbate and I notice that a lot of sperm doesn’t cum out sometimes, does HSV-2 have something to do with that?
  4. New member here and looking forward to reading about others experiences. I've been HSV-2 + for about forty years. It's never easy trying to start a possible new ltr or even an occasional fling but I no longer beat myself up over it. Looking forward to reading others experiences, especially when it comes down to "the talk". I'm a gay single divorced mwm in my mid 60's just looking for love like everyone else. Peace to you all.
