  1. HSV2sucks

    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
  2. I was diagnosed almost a year ago and have always struggled to find an outlet or any support. I stumbled upon this site when researching a new rash. I’ve constantly struggled with dealing with my herpes, especially since I got it due to being raped. I hope to be able to talk to some people with similar experiences and problems. I have HSV1 in the genital region. Does anybody else deal with that as well?

    Confused ?

    Im hsv2 and 1. its been like 18 months since i had a painful outbreak down there. Whyy dont i have sores down there or on my lips ? Is it because i have a healthy immune system that i could only have outbreaks long periods at a time?? And with hsv1 can i still be contagious without a cold sore.. And how?
  4. Hi everyone. I'm new to these forums. I'm not sure of my status since my possible exposure in September. I have been tested five days after exposure and it came back negative. I keep getting more and more symptoms on and off. I have been every doctor from primary, gyno, dermatologist and dentist. My anxiety is out of control that I've been prescribed ssris but scared to take it since I read that someone said it caused their outbreak. I have been having nightmares about sores covering my face and thighs. I feel terrified of my own body. Being on here has helped some with getting all of this off

    Just Diagnosed

    Wow. So, I just got the test results about an hour ago. After calling my mom and sobbing uncontrollably, I did some reading. I read a lot about other women's experiences, and also ended up on this website. Needless to say, I am incredibly upset about it. I feel disgusting. Dirty, gross, like nothing. The worst part: I don't know who gave it to me. I have had more than one sexual partner this past month, and frankly, it is going to be fucking hard to tell them. I don't know how I am going to tell these people, how they will react, if they will tell our friends. Who will I be known as? Who will

    Is this Herpes??

    The doctor couldn’t tell me for sure and I’m still waiting for the results. I had unprotected sex with a new partner about five days ago. Three days after I woke up with these red spots everywhere. If anything they’ve gotten smaller. There’s no pain/discharge and only minor itching and irritation of my foreskin. What do you think? https://imgur.com/a/sccIpuE
  7. Hello, About 3 weeks ago I began my relationship with my new sugar daddy. Unfortunately I jumped the gun and had sex with him before he could get tested. It was unprotected. I asked him shortly after to get tested and I'd do the same. My appointment is this week but lately ive been have been experiencing some pain, burning and itchiness with white/clear discharge(thin). Also, I have some signs of irritation like small white/clear bumps(see pictures) around my vulva and labia. I asked him about his sexual history and he also said he'd gone to be tested recently and he was clean. But now I'
  8. Count your blessings and not your problems. Realize that yesterday is gone, today is here, and tomorrow is beginning. Let it go and seize the day while you still have it. In the end, you will find your true self and love them even more. Trust me.
  9. Hello all, First of all, wow. What a wonderful community of people here on honeycomb and across the web. I experienced my first outbreak of HSV 1- genital last week and I am so grateful of all the helpful tips and tricks and stories I have read. It truly helped me get through what has been the most painful week of my life: physically and emotionally. I got married in May 2018 to the man of my dreams after 4 very happy years of growth and love together. Literally days after we returned from our honeymoon I thought I had some severe chaffing from walking around and sweating. I
  10. Need some advice
  11. Hi, I'm new with this disease. I was herpes 1 positive, I only had an outbreak once a year or two years (oral herpes in the corners of the mouth). I was in high school when I got it (I was 17 years old). . 6 months ago I went to a concert, I met a girl, bla bla bla and she gave me oral sex. A week later I had a horrible itching and transparent urethral discharge. The itching felt the same as when I get oral herpes. I did IGG exams at 2 weeks and only type 1 positive came out (which I already knew) herpes 2 came out negative. After 3 months I returned to take the test and the two positive
  12. Hi all, im new to the site but was diagnosed about a year and a half ago. I luckily seemed to get a pretty mild case of hsv-2, because since my first outbreak i've been fine up until now. This outbreak is different though, no lesions, but the same flu symptoms i had the first time, lethargic and achy. And also lower back pain. Does that sound familiar to anyone else? Anyway, i think the worst parts for me have been worrying that ill infect my current partner who is herpes free and dealing with the whole "stigma". A few weeks ago i learned that a few of my so called "friends" who i made the mis

    Black Friday.

    This is the first time i've come forward with this... To anyone or anything. So, I'll start it with a simple question for all of you: If you could go back in time, what would you change and would you change it? Most who would go back would take the chance to set their lives on a more stable path before winds of life change took hold or to reclaim a past that has slipped from ones grasp. Others who wouldn't change anything have since come to peace with their path and have come to the conclusion that things are the way they should be. It's very 'black and white', close the book questio

    Is it just me?

    So is it just me or does anyone else notice we have an increasing number of people signing up each day on HC alone? Does this maybe suggest the rate of infections is increasing? Sucks to see more people being victims of this virus.
  16. I've known for 4 days. My doctor called today and made it official, Hsv2. Still feels a little unreal. I'm trying to be positive. I've read about how common this is. Feeling pretty lonely though.
  17. Ok so here's my story. Met this man back in March of this year. I didn't know how I felt about him so I was kind of all over the place with my emotions and kind of blew him off. He never gave up and continued to pursue (called, texted even if I didn't answer) me. June is when I realized he seemed like a good guy and it was me with the issues (past relationships were not very good, etc). Anyway, we started being intimate in June and that kind of started the relationship. He had always said that there was something about me and that is why he never gave up even though his friends were telling h

    Help! Is this reliable?

    Hello, I had a possible exposure 7 weeks ago by mutual masturbation, I took this test to check for hsv2. Is there enough time for the antibodies to form? I've read that the test is 70% reliable after 6 weeks, is this true? Is this test a good sign? Thank you in advance!

    I literally just registered for this forum , I'm glad to be here. Hi my name is quest I'm 21 and was diagnosed 10/20/17 with herpes 2. Its been a real struggle I thought it was a yeast infection then bacterial vaginosis until sores appeared. Apparently my boyfriend has herpes 1 and thinks it's just a cold sore (I keep telling him go get tested I haven't told him I've been diagnosed for fear of negative and disrespectful reaction also I feel he's going to blame me) well he gave me head in what must have been the middle more towards ending of outbreak but I didn't see it until the deed was done.
  20. Hi, I am pretty sure I have hsv2. Have had hsv1 for years. I need advice. I don't know what to do. I Have never been so afraid in all my life. I was with a guy 3 weeks ago and we didn't have sex but, we did grind and no condom. Within a day I felt very uncomfortablein my area. Within 2 weeks nearly to the day pain, rash,pimple like red spots no eruption. Tail bone pain, eye pain,burning etc. He says he didn't give it to me ok. No sex with anyone in 6 mos. I went to Dr she's saying no it's not hsv2. I know it is. I just got back in contact with my ex and he is the love of my life. Litera

    Need someone to talk to.

    I really need someone new to talk to about these things. I have no one because none of my close friends or family members know what this is like. I'm only 21 and found out I have HSV2 in March and have been going through a very back breakup. If anyone's interested in having a conversation, I'm here.

    Hsv1 and Hsv2

    Welp, here I am...a herpes support online forum. I got the call today that I tested positive for HSV1 and HSV2. The nurse did not say if they were oral or genital specific. My doctor prescribed me the generic for valtrax or however you spell it and I took my first pill tonight. Rewind to almost a year and a half ago when I went to the doctor while I had an outbreak in my nose! They did a complete blood work up on me and she said I came up positive for both simplex 1 and 2. I was DEVASTATED like threw up from crying so hard and went home from work lol. The doctor knew how hysterical
  23. Hi, I was just recently diagnosed with HSV-1 genital area. The shock and anger are still new for me. It's comforting to have found this forum. My husband is reeling and is absolutely no help right now. A lot of my anger is directed towards him, but I am trying to stay away from the blame game. Anyway, hello.
  24. Hi everyone! Im new to online forums in general. I was diagnosed almost 3 years ago, my freshman year of college, after being sexually assaulted by someone I considered and friend. Previously before that, I had been saving myself for marriage. It took me a long time to accept what had happen to me. I was in so much denial that I had been raped that I even went back to that guy to tell him that he had given me herpes 2 and to tell him that it was okay. I am very open with the fact that I have herpes because i want to help the stigma around it even if I am just educating the people around me. i
