    Anyone from SLC, UT

    Hey there. Even with the support of my friends/family who are negative I would like to have someone to talk to near me who could understand stand or even help guiding me. Good doctors to go to for long term treatment, tips and tricks for dealing with outbreaks, sex with a partner is who is negative, etc.
  2. I am from Nairobi,Kenya. I have searched and searched but can't seem to find any form of Support groups from where I am. I think in Africa generally, HSV isn't something talked about much or tested that often so most people do not know they have it. For us who do know, it feels very lonely. I am not looking for a hookup. I just want to see if I can connect with people closer to where I am. If you are in a similar position, from whichever country, please feel free to share your experience.
  3. So I lost my info to my other account but about 3 years ago I was diagnosed with HSV2. Only 17 Had Only had sex less than a handful of times. The close friend I gave my virginity to, my boyfriend I was on and off with due to me breaking up with him, and my first No strings art attached encounter (which was still with a male friend I knew well). Nobody has ever stepped forward to take claim of my diagnosis or to apologize and be accountable. I still remember that night in the emergency room after being in pain for over a week and my mom sitting there telling me if it was serious she "wasn't go

    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

    Everything is gonna be fine.

    Anyone else actually legit ok? After doing the research, finding out how to keep myself healthy, how to keep this in dormacy, plus seeing how large of a community is on this side of the fence.... like, I'm good. And everyone else really should take the time to read, watch videos, figure out how your own body works with this shit, keep this community close also. We're all gonna be fine. I'm more annoyed by occasional indigestion honestly.
  8. Dear all, I have created a group on Facebook called Theravax HSV1 & 2 as a platform for people to share their experiences from the Theravax Trails. This is a closed group. Please avoid any negativity as we already have enough of that in the outside world and we don't need it here on this group. You can share your experiences on the consultation, pre and post travel as well so that it helps every one make better decisions. Members of this group can also help each other to travel together to get the vaccine (Not necessarily by means of funds) but just support as it's not always easy to go

    Severe Pain

    Hi, I've recently been diagnosed with herpes. At first, it was a sore, then spread to multiple sores that hurt severely when I'd pee. I haven't been eating much. It has been a week and the sores don't hurt as bad, but the pain from my lower back hurts all the way down to my toes. It is severe nerve pain and my skin feels flu like. It is constant. This is my first outbreak. Has anybody else experienced this. The pain is so excruciating I want to throw up.

I have just made myself physically sick because i have been waiting for days for the results and now that i have them I’m wondering what do i do now....

    New to this, shaken, but not deterred

    Hello everyone.... Welp, turns out my suspicions were legit and I can say that I'm now another person living with HSV 2. It's only been a week since I got the results, and I've been taking acyclovir everyday since. After a brief pity party, I picked myself up and decided to fight this and live my life. With that said, I have questions....many questions....especially considering that I'm talking to a really wonderful person (the feelings are reciprocated! Yay!) and would like to pursue a relationship with her. Can we still give each other oral sex? What are the best drugs to take? How did
  13. Hi everyone, I was diagnosed with HSV1 about 7 months ago. It was one of those crazy, "never think that it will happen to me things", I'm sure you can all relate to that. Really all I wanted at first was someone to talk to. I'm pretty open about things, but it wasn't the same talking to people who didn't understand, who weren't living it. I looked through a few forums and different websites to get info. I found that I wasn't trusting a lot of the forums and felt like I was getting a lot of conflicting information. Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough? But why do I have to look "hard" for s

    Please I need advice

    I'm newly diagnosed with HSV 1 and 2. I've had pretty minor genital outbreaks but they just make it burn to pee and it feels like cuts. Never had a cold sore. I've went on acyclovir twice until recently my doctor put me on suppression therapy with acyclovir. I had a slight burning, redness and irritation. I'm 5 days in on the therapy and it hurts so bad down there. Now I have this weird thing on my lip like I burned myself on hot food. I've been super stressed. Just started my semester at college and started dating an amazing man who didn't take my disclosure so well. He's coming around but i

    I need to vent

    Hi! New to this site but unfortunately not new to herpes. I started getting outbreaks around 5 years ago and they have been constant the last 3 1/2 years. I am going through the worst outbreak ever. I probably have 5 lesions on the base of my spine right now. I have tried supplements, diets, valtrex which triggered the outbreaks to be constant for me, energy work, therapy and releasing emotions, etc... part of me feels like the outbreak is so bad because my body is detoxing it out of me and about to heal and part of me feels like I am going to have to deal with this the rest of my life.
  16. Can someone please tell me what’s going on with me? I’m a guy and It’s been 2+ months since I was diagnosed, which i’m still not sure if it was a false positive or not and i’ve had what seemed like 4-5 UTI’s ever since. Had 4 urine cultures, 2 of the have been UTI’s with actual bacteria, 1 was contaminated, and 1 showed no growth. I’ve been on macrobid for the bacterial infection, but after finishing that i’ve been having severe UTI symptoms again. I can’t sleep, it hurts to pee, urine is cloudy, my head is hot (my temp shows to bee at 98F) each time I wake up, and now my body is aching. I’ve
  17. Hi guys, I’m a 19 year old college student and I just found out I have Genital Herpes. It’s weird even saying it, I still keep hoping it’s a dream. I don’t know how to feel. I know it’s not the end of the world but it’s still different. I don’t think anyone ever imagined getting this so it’s not a happy change. It’s just weird. Ive been in a serious relationship for about 8 months now and I have only been with two guys. My boyfriend has been amazing and he has also been diagnosed with herpes as well. During my hellish first outbreak that I’m currently going through he has done so much for
  18. So i was recently diagnosed with hsv1 due to an outbreak genitally. I have never had a cold sore. The day before my outbreak i had sex (obviously i had no inclination i had hsv1 or any symotoms otherwise i wouldnt have had sex). (The outbreak i guess it would be called the primary outbreak, i literally wanted to die, The pain and discomfort was the worst pain I have experienced in my entire life) The blood test showed i had hsv1 antibodies but not hsv2 antibodies. I want to know whether or not i have type 1 or 2 genitally but it took her so long to reach me i have to wait 3 months before i ca
  19. Hey everyone, I’m still a bit new to the forums and a bit to having herpes as well (~1.5 months since diagnosis). Some of you may have seen a few of my posts already, but I guess as much as I’m trying to overcome the fact that I am positive for it (and I intend on getting retested in a couple of months), it’s pretty damn difficult because of several things. This was my first ever sexual experience as a guy and as someone whose family is very against sex before marriage I am feeling regret, guilt, what i consider depression, and if I’ll ever feel ‘normal’ again emotionally and psychologically a
  20. Looking for other HSV+ folks in the Danville, VA area so we can meet and support each other.
  21. Hi everyone, I just found out yesterday that I have type 2 herpes. I've been in monogamous relationships, with the most recent one being 3 years. I had a drunken night (first time since the breakup) and had unprotected sex. Symptoms showed up immediately after and here we are now. One night, one mistake, changed my whole life. I cried at the doctors office and have been feeling ashamed, sad, and depressed. Thank god i have a close group of friends and family who have been extremely supportive. However, no matter how many times they try to tell me "it's going to be alright", I can't s
  22. Just found out a week ago when my usual between-relationship testing came up unexpectedly as positive for exposure to HSV2. My ex had some significant mental health issues which he had concealed pretty well for most of our relationship. He became depressed and things spiraled from there. He was self medicating with substances legal and illegal which induced mania/cycling and he became truly psychotic. He is now facing criminal charges for harassment, threats and a physical attack on me after I ended the relationship. I lived in hell for months never knowing where the next threat would come fro
