  1. hpv and hsv are very similar viruses. And the drug for hpv can easily be a drug for hsv. But it is easier to seek a drug for HPV because the efficacy results of the drug can immediately be seen by the naked eye on the warts. The conclusion is: There are many more studies that have more precise conclusions about the hpv virus that we also can use for hsv. https://www.mdedge.com/pediatricnews/article/102139/infectious-diseases/expert-shares-treatment-tips-molluscum-contagiosum/page/0/1

    So what sites are you guys considering? I've been on PS for a few months with no luck. I've also been on OKCupid and Bumble but I find myself stalling to actually meet up for fear of " the talk". What are your experiences?

    A poem: Death To My Giver

    Since I am having such a hard time dealing with my GHSV diagnosis, I thought it would be beneficial to express my emotions via a poem. I welcome all feedback, and thank you for reading: "Death To My Giver " My giver was a male, and his penis looked clean I looked and searched around, but no bumps were seen We had sex on the couch, and sex in his room He had an open invitation, as a guest in my womb My vagina let him in, with a hug and a squeeze His penis returned the favor, with an incurable disease Six days later, feeling symptoms in my bed Taking selfies of my vagina, of bumps that turned red My worst nightmare in the world, unfolding before my eyes With no one to talk to, to comfort my cries Having to go to work, with blisters and in pain Losing sleep and my mind, isolated and insane Doctors visits, drugs, and crying for days Drinking myself to sleep, in an ambien haze Reading stats and blogs, to make it all seem okay Feeling worse about my life, with each passing day A fever, a headache, swollen glands, and the chills Looking back on meeting you, I should have run for the hills You infected me, and left me, to deal with it alone You showed no remorse, no answer from your phone Now my choice is gone, and the freedom to have sex Replaced with insecurity, fear, and hiding bottles of Valtrex The stigma and the pain for the rest of my life Will I become a mother, a girlfriend, or become somebody's wife? Will I be accepted, loved, and made whole again? Or will I be rejected, sad, a lonely old hen? Hearing jokes about herpes, now it hurts all the more Having to tell myself I'm not dirty, repeat, I am not a whore I was tested before, for HSV and all It always came back negative, never once received a call I want to sue you and scream, the most repulsive guy It gives me pleasure to think about every way you may die Every ounce of anger I have, directed at you So DEATH TO MY GIVER, you probably knew

  5. Current situation I am in. (It is so long, but I feel like all the details need to be explained, THANK YOU all so much for your time in advance.) (I don’t know what else to do.) Dec 2015 – noticed a mark on the left side of my penile shaft that I thought at the time looked like rug burn. Had protected sex, brief unprotected oral two weeks’ prior with female. Fast forward another 5 ½ months, this would have been Early June of 2016. I noticed this time that TWO marks showed up on the left side of my penile shaft. One being in the same spot as the first mark in December of 2015 and a second mark that sat a little above it on the base left side of my penile head. I did not know much about herpes at this time, so when I got back to my home state I went to the doctor to have him look at it. These growths/spots (for lack of a better word) were almost healed at this time, and we decided to get the whole set of STD Blood Tests. The herpes tests were type specific, CLIA, IGG’s. I tested NEGATIVE for everything. So I just put it all behind me. Fast forward to literally one year later, around the middle of May of 2017. I noticed a very little sore/mark/ break in the skin/ (hard to explain) that sat at basically the same spot on the base of my penile head that one of the spots from June of 2016 sat. This is when I really starting to think how strange that was that those spots sat so similar. I did have heavy condom usage around all three of these incidents, so I thought it could be a contact dermatitis or eczema type issue, but I wanted to get another set of blood tests done to make sure. So I retested through the same doctor with LabCorp again. Full set of STD blood tests, Herpes tests were CLIA, type specific IGG’s. I tested NEGATIVE again for everything. 18 plus months since December of 2015. I tried to put this all behind me again but I found myself still trying to figure out what this could possibly be. So that is when I got in touch with Terri Warren and got the Western Blot done as well for greater clarity. My results all came back negative. I was so excited. Then low and behold, AGAIN in late May of 2018, (so weird that these symptoms keep coming back once a year during the same few months of each year, MAY/JUNE,) I experienced some itching and redness in the same area on the left side of the penile shaft. This time I experienced red linage and markings that looked like an oval surrounding a prior spot that had previous sores/breaks in the skin years ago. So I had an infectious disease specialist in the area on call to help with a PCR Swab right away. Had the red areas swabbed very aggressively. Got good amount of skin off and results AGAIN came back negative. Did another IGG for amusement and again all negative. I do want to make this side note —NONE of my sores/breaks/marks have ever been blisters with fluid. I just thought it’s important to mention. With all that said, I have had 5 totals test done which include 3 IGGS/full STD panel, 1 Western Blot and 1 PCR and all have come back negative. I have worked with Terri Warren, an Infectious Disease Specialist here in my city, and a dermatologist, and they all keep telling me that I’m negative and to move on. I have gotten answers ranging from possible dermatitis to Fixed Drug Eruption as well possible penile psoriasis. I’m in limbo land. I believe my test results but also feel like my symptoms has some similarity to GHSV1. It is just so frustrating to not get a definitive answer on these symptoms. Maybe I’m too focused on HSV but i just don’t know a lot about other causes to explore. I know they are out there though. Skin is skin after all. Anyways, I just thought I’d share my story in hopes of some additional insight from others experiences to see what else this could be and to get greater clarity! I have a great team of specialists that I’m working with and wanted to add some additional help and knowledge from this great support team as well! :) Thanks again! All the best to you all!

    Hey everyone. I’ve read a lot of posts and have talked to some people from the forums who suffer in various ways from this virus. I’ve also heard the term ‘neuralgia’ being thrown around in posts, but have yet to figure out what kind of pain and its origin is for all the people that said they experience it. Please do me a favor and comment below about your experience with it and where it causes you problems and what kind of pain is it exactly? This might help some other newer members also understand. Thanks.
  9. Especially after Ascendance’s herpes injection we started to see news dont panic herpes is going down in population :)) Now i better understand how people dont care us. http://time.com/5136481/herpes-simplex-virus/ I think what they say is a bullshit, there are alot of people who are not aware of they have virus and spreading it.
  10. I just had what seems like a good idea in my head. Billboards are expensive, a march for HSV is hard to organize, and most other methods are difficult to make happen because people don't want their identities to be exposed. I'm sure most of you have seen vehicles such as cars or trucks with ads on them, right? What about raising money to have a message or slogan placed on trucks and other vehicles which would be willing to be paid for that? Those vehicles travel long distances and more people would see the message every day without us having to do anything extra and they wouldn't be stationary like a billboard, right? I'm not sure how much this would cost per vehicle, but I think it would be negotiable and not as much as a billboard? If we raised enough money on a crowdfunding website for this, would anyone be interested in donating or willing to ask in your area how much it would cost? I think this is one of the best ways to remain anonymous while still doing something that allows us to get the message in front of people. We could include the stats for how many people have HSV, how people should get tested, or anything else that's short but to the point. You can message me if you'd like if you don't want to post here. Thanks.
  11. Hey everyone. Im 25 and from malaysia. Been itching for few days now. The last time i itched like this was a month and half ago. I was told if you have Hsv 2 you would have gotten sore or lesion around genital area. My case, i don't see any lesions or sores around my genital. I've been itching randomly all over my body and been getting like tingling sensation. Is this herpes? How would i know if its herpes? Im scared to death to get checked. Living with my family.. Honestly i dont know what to do
  12. *SING THIS* Hello, its me. I'm just a brown skinned, young woman with H-S-V. I've tried to change...... my avi, but nothing seems to work so someone pleease he-elp me. All jokes aside, hey y'all! I realized something was up in Nov 2016. My, once very smooth, lips were feeling chapped and a little bumpy. I was confused. My top lip tingled.... and then tingled some more. For some days, I sat & pondered & researched. Then I came to a realization. These were cold sores. REWINDDD to about 3 weeks before then , I had smoked a blunt (i dont smoke anymore btw yippy!!) with 2-3 others. They were my seasonal coworkers. About 2 weeks after that, I was out of weed (and I was fiendin') so I smoked the end of "this dude"s cigarette (searching for a high i guess)!! "This dude" was an old friend of my mom's and was staying with us for a little while. Who was the culprit?? WE WILL FIND OUT ON THE NEXT EPISODE OF 'WHO DONE IT'!!! jk the world may never know. Mind you, I am a virgin and at that time, hadn't kissed anyone in 2 years more/less. Weeks pass as I watch it unfold. My confidence slowly plummets. FAST FORWARD to June 2017. I couldn't take it anymore. I was embarrassed and did not want to be out in public. I had been having outbreaks almost every 2 weeks. Once one outbreak was done, the next was ready to take it's spot!!! I decided to go to the doctor for pills *DUN DUN DUNN* I took pills for about 4 months and felt like, each day, i was swimming in a pool of hypocrisy! I say this bc my mom is on maybe 5-6 different pills (for high cholesterol, joints, etc) and I am always advocating for natural ways to heal herself. I soon decided I was not going to refill the meds!! I began to research....... I know I am taking a lot of yall's time so I'm gonna FAST FORWARD again. After the one year mark, Nov 2017, the outbreaks became less noticeable. I feel that my yoga, meditation/ de-stressing & clean eating, have something to do with that. .....will talk soon, peace.
  13. In the study, published in the medical journal Nature, researchers were able to show an inhibitor could be developed to break down the herpes virus associated with Kaposi's sarcoma. Scientists say the research could help in the development of antiviral drugs for both herpes and the Epstein-Barr virus which researchers believe have almost identical structure, a UCLA Health release said. The Epstein-Barr virus is estimated to be present in over 90 percent of the adult population https://patientdaily.com/stories/511324251-ucla-study-indicates-inhibitor-could-break-down-herpes-virus

    Should I be concerned ?

    So I had a rash on my vag. Peeling skin, burning and swollen. Two doctors confirmed it was an allergic reaction to clyndomyacin. While they were checking, they ran an STD test which showed I was positive for chlyamidia. I took meds and cleared that up. My urgent care doctor said I should do a follow up visit and check for syphillis and HIV because those are sometimes connected with Chlamydia. I then went and got tested & my primary care doctor also put on a herpes IgG blood test. All my results were negative except HSV2 I tested as follows : HSV1 negative .02 & HSV2 positive 8.0. In my head I was thinking there no possible way I’ve never had a bump lump lesion nothing ever that resembled herpes before. I did tons of researching and freaking out. My doctor then calls me on Monday and told me “all your tests are negative you do not have any STDs” and i said no no no hold on my “mychart” says I’m HSV positive and it’s a high positive and she said correct you have had it in the past but not currently. And I said that doesn’t make sense once you have it you always have it and she said yes it stays dormant but because you have never had a break out it’s notning to worry about and I’m STD free. I then called my Gyno and asked her the exact same thing & she said “your primary care doctor should not have given you that test that test has a very high rate of false positives and being that you have never had symptoms of herpes in your life it doesn’t make sense that you have herpes. She then told me “your other doctor was correct to presume your test is negative and your STD free” and I said so I’m good I have nothing to worry about? & she said “nope if you ever see a lump bump or open sore I want to see you immediately, however I don’t see that happening” (side note all I could see were the test results not any extra notes or anything else that doctors can see) shoukd I still be concerned ? Should I tell future sex partners i have HSV2? Should i get another blood test ? Do I have herpes or not ?
  15. Hi. We all know that in theory it usually takes 12-16 weeks (sometimes up to 24 weeks) to get positive IGG blood test for HSV2. What are your personal experiences of testing positive for HSV2, i.e. time since exposure? And IGG score? Can you also state if you had HSV1 (oral or genital) and took any Antivirals prior to IGG testing? TQ
  16. 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 lotion on the condom I only received oral from her no sex. After doing some research I found out that can damage condoms. But it didn't tear. But I've been feeling very irritated down there like I described earlier. Is it possible to be re-infected with a different type of HSV or do you guys think that it is something else going on? I've been so depressed lately and having major anxiety. I want to get checked so bad but I'm afraid she will accuse me of infecting her. Also I just want relief I've bought acyclovir online and have been taking them for a day now hoping to make the irritation go away. My friends says it's all in my head. I've been tested for most STDs and all negative.

    For People Who Puts Genital Pictures

    Dear friends, please stop putting your genital pictures on website. I hate to see someones private area. We are not professionals i understand your worry and anxiety about herpes. But the best thing is to see a doctor and show. It can be something else and people here can say you its herpes. Or it can be herpes bur people here can say its not herpes. So dont show that kind of pictures please ! If you want to show it to someone first open a topic with your sympthoms then if someone will try to help you can pm them. But please dont put it for general.
