    Gave to Boyfriend

    Some background before I explain- I have not been formally diagnosed with herpes but I do get cold sores. It's been at least 2 years since my last one and since my life is very fast paced it's always the last thing on my mind. So when I got into my current relationship I had totally forgotten that I actually get them. My current issue is that I didn't realize I was getting a cold sore because I recently changed acne treatments and disregarded the tingling sensation as a reaction. I gave my boyfriend oral sex and that night after work saw what has now become a sore. I was up till midnight looki
  2. Hello my name is Tommy, I have been in a relationship with my girlfriend for two years. At the beginning of our relationship everything was going well and we clicked as a couple, until I made the worst possible decision of my life in December 2016. I slept with another woman, unprotected, in which i contracted genital herpes HSV-2 from my one and only sexual encounter with this woman. I deserved it as a punishment for what I had done and felt as if I should even die for what I did. I then had sex with my girlfriend the following January of 2017, in which she contracted genital herpes. Sh
  3. Hello I am new to this site and need advice. I am with someone that doesn't have herpes we are using the necessary precaution when having sex. We have been together for over two years and I enjoy having sex but my boyfriend not so much because we are using a condom. I and afraid that he will eventually not want to have sex anymore. Is anyone else in a relationship with someone that doesn't have herpes?

    Sex again ever?!

    I was recently diagnosed with this virus. My boyfriend of 4 months developed symptoms the same time I did so I have no idea where it came from. My boyfriend has been struggling with this diagnoses as well. I have questions about sex... Obviously we wont be having sex if we are having a active outbreak because it would be painful. But what if he is at the end of the outbreak on just him? could we use a condom and be ok? or can he reinfect me or spread it to me? I know we are both already infected but will sex make the out break worse? What about foreplay? fingering? Can my bf get herpes o

    I Want To Try Again

    I was diagnosed with gHSV1 about 2 weeks ago. My outbreak is all cleared up and I am off the 7 day treatment my nurse gave me. I want to try getting back into sexual activity with my partner, but I am nervous about pain or discomfort. Can anyone give me any advice or what to expect? It can be as simple as oral to actual intercourse Any response would be greatly appreciated... I am very nervous.
  6. Hi everyone, I have SO many questions. As of yesterday I found out I have HSV1. My boyfriend spread it to me through oral after he recently had gotten over a cold sore, yet it is still on my genital area. I found out yesterday what it was and I have not stopped crying since. Neither of us had any idea the virus could spread like that and he feels extremely guilty, yet fully supportive. I love him so much, but I'm only 17 so I think everyone can agree we most likely will not be together forever. I'm extremely nervous for my future. How do I tell a potential partner I have HSV1? When do I
  7. Hi everyone I am a 28 y.o. Male and I do not have hsv1 or hsv2. I am sorry if I offend anyone by joining a forum for people that have it but I have nowhere else to turn. Reason I joined is because there is this woman that I'm in love with for the better part of a year , we never did anything and she would push me away finally I had enough and asked her what the deal was, she finally came out and told me that she has HSV2 that she contracted years ago and kept pushing me away because she was afraid of spreading it to me. My immediate response was wow I really do appreciate you trusting

    New relationship confusion

    Hi all, I am a bit confused about a few things in my new 'potential' relationship, and I would really appreciate some advice. I met this guy a month and a half ago, on tinder, which maybe doesn't sound promising, but he seems like a genuine guy and has shown a lot of interest in me. He has pursued me a lot and wants us to be open and talk to each other about everything. I feel I can trust him. (though I could be wrong) I contracted gHSV1 last year this time. It was very traumatic. I already had a fear of stds, and after that I thought I'd be better off alone. I always tol
  9. I've had this for 8 years. It's made me very insecure...so insecure in fact I've found myself in horrible relationships. When they find out its like they don't even try anymore. Never mind how unsexy it is to have the "talk" in the first place it totally kills the sexy vibe for me. It emotional, and it's heavy and with all the reading of other ppls blogs and stories it does not bring me any closer to anyone, more like makes me not want to pursue it anymore. I'm very attractive, not being biased, this is just something I know commonly from other points of view. It's not hard to attract a guy al

    UK TV Documentary

    Hello all, My name is Jack and I work for a TV company called Blakeway North based in Manchester. We create factual programming for all the major UK broadcasters but specialise in access documentaries, where we have worked with an array of institutions, companies and charities to produce critically acclaimed, popular, and award-winning content. We're currently working on a documentary for a major UK channel about dating with herpes and wondered if anyone who is single and currently dating would want to share their story with us? I'd love to hear from people who would like to ta
  11. Hi there, I'm new to this, and I'm seeking advice for a situation I have found myself in with a partner of one year. When we first met, last November, I instantly fell in love with this girl. So much so, I went to see a counsellor to talk about my problem and how I could tell her. My moral values lie with the person should have the choice with whether they want to continue in the relationship knowing that information. I also believe, that by them accepting the fact I have genital herpes, I can be truly open and honest moving forward. I came to this decision based on how I got th

    Newly diagnosed/ sad

    So i recently found out that i got HSV 1. I hooked up with two guys in the same week and am still figuring out who gave it to me but honestly at this point I don't really care. I have read so much on the virus and honestly don't find it to be a big deal expect maybe a wake up call to use protection. Although the day i found out i was very shaken up and it was the day after me and my ex had sex. I felt discomfort the night before but i assumed it was like any discomfort that I've gotten before down there so i didn't pay too much attention to it. I didn't want to have sex originally but h
  13. Not married but I do have a boyfriend, With KNOWN ghsv1 & ohsv + status, who is seeing another woman. This woman knows that we are together. Neither of them know that I know they are seeing each other at the moment, as his cell phone answers many of my questions since I found out what they are up to. I've been on this since the beginning stages of there encounters (it's been about a month now) He is the one who infected me an now he's up to no good. I want to tell her only because it will give me some evilish satisfaction, me being the one to tell her but MOSLTY be
  14. Hi there. I was just diagnosed with HSV-2 yesterday by a routine annual STD blood test I took a week ago. I've never had any symptoms, nor do I have any other stds. I've read online that if you don't have an initial outbreak you may never show symptoms. I guess I should consider myself lucky in that regard, and I do, but still it's just a horrible situation to find myself in. I have no idea how I got it, when I got it, where on my body I should be wary of other people touching to avoid spreading my disease -- and that's the part I'm most worried about, I'm so worried about spreading this disea

    Feel horrible

    So I was dating someone for almost 4 months. We really connected so by our 3rd date I let him know I have hsv2. We talked about it. So everything was fine. Then I get a text saying he's having issues and going to doc. So 6 days goes by, Im really concerned after trying to reach out and nothing. Then I realized he blocked me. Finally on the 7th day, I get a brief MSG saying he got what I have and he doesn't want talk to me anymore. Its so confusing I was completely transparent!? I wondering if I should wait awhile and reach out to him?
