  1. Would love any advice on if these symptoms seem like hsv or if anyone else has had consistent negative testing yet present with intense symptoms. Doctors I have seen do not think it is hsv. But cannot give me any other explanation. Had sex in 11/8 and symptoms started 11/15 and have wavered in intensity and changed yet been consistent through out the last 5 months. Initial symptoms: vaginal itching, thick white discharge, anal itching, two tears in labia. Doctor thought it could be yeast was treated and with no change to my symptoms. Following symptoms: chills, body aches, sm
  2. June 3rd I may of been exposed to Herpes. Performed oral and vaginal sex with a one night stand. A few days later, "felt off" and got tested on the 7th (negative for all stds, but not tested for herpes) Took a round of Doxycycline the following week around the 14th for a few days as I was feeling extremely Hot and urinating frequently. It seemed to help for an instant, however still feeling off. Tested again n the 28th - Negative for all stds including HSV igg however positive for HSV igm with an index of 1.14 (Positive being anything greater than 1.1) *approximately 26 days a
  3. Hey, I have been effective by herpes simplex virus for 21 days. And l still have the pain and lesion. I went to the doctor 2 weeks ago, she said that ”is getting better, there is no lesion in the area. ” and l had sex with my boyfriend while using a condom. After that l got the pain and lesions again. Last night l checked and l didn't see any lesions and didn't feel any pain and we thought it's gone. We had sex and now l have the pain again. My question is when l get rid of this pain and lesions? Is it bad to have sex before lesions still in there even l barely see them? Also, my per

    HSV and CNS issues.

    @true_blue, @LatentBloomer, @Cas9, @Mackie82, @diablo604 @fallin and others. Lets continue the discussion regarding HSV infection and its affect on the CNS. It seems most who have neuropathy also have had testing issues and atypical presentation. This is something thatbI have observed here over and over and over.
  7. I am experiencing my second GHSV1 outbreak, exactly 1 year after my first GHSV1 outbreak in August 2016. I'm bummed to say the least, but mostly concerned with the way my GHSV1 is manifesting this time around. During my first outbreak, I had the classic prodromal symptoms of itchiness, common flu symptoms, and swollen lymph nodes on both sides of my groin. I had several small-ish bumps, and a group of tiny blisters at the top of my vulva: those seemed to be the only sores that stung and "opened." They also took the longest to heal. -- With my second outbreak beginning yesterday, my sympto
  8. It was on the 12th of August, 2015 when I realized or had my first out break. Few days before that day (August 12th), I went to a friends birthday party, I had so much alcohol, I was happy then I met this girl, she was kinda alone and me! Feeling like a superstar wanted to cheer her up. So we talked and I gave her some alcohol, she was so much excited and we danced, hugged and even cuddled while dancing. Then she told me she was tired she needed to seat she asked if we could take a walk away from the party. Whom am I to say no, after all she is very pretty and sexy, I took her

    Outbreaks inside mouth?

    Hi everyone, I have oral and genital HSV1, diagnosed a little over a year ago. I am wondering, does anyone else get oral outbreaks that are primarily inside your mouth and not on your lips? When I get oral outbreaks, mine usually don't come with cold sores around my lips. The sores are only inside my mouth, usually on my gums, and they're pretty painful and annoying, as they get in the way of eating and brushing my teeth. This doesn't seem like a super common presentation of HSV1 because I can't find a ton of info about it online, but I know I'm not the only person whose oral HSV presents
  10. I’ve made some posts earlier this month on my presumptive status. I was tested 12 days since the initial exposure. The test results are back... HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91 (0.00-0.90 index) HSV 1/2 IgG Aby-HSV2 IgG, Type Spec = 1.27 (0.00-0.90 index) HSV 2 IgG Supplemental Test-HSV-2, IgG Supplemental Test = Negative All other stds came back negative. On the 10th day, white stinging cloudy discharge came out of the tip of my penis. It still hurts to urinate, but not as intensely. What looks like “contact dermatitis” on the head of my penis but
  11. So for starters I have had HSV1 on my mouth since I was a teenager and ten years later for HSV1 on my gums . So even though I know it is a small chance it passes to other body parts after years well it migrated to my mouth so it happens . So now to the point my partner and I both have Hsv1 he has it on his nose and me well lips and gums. Last week thursday I got sugared in my lady area and the next day I developed one single bump on my labia . So Saturday I'm freaking out and go to doc she looks at it says it's a small cyst take some fucidin cream . I ask her to swab it she won't says no
  12. Lately I've been in this depressive state and it's mainly because of having herpes. I was diagnosed almost five years ago. I take Valtrex almost everyday. I use to take 500mg twice a day. Now I take it once mainly towards the evenings and I honestly feel like it does nothing. I have not been able to suppress this virus. It has been active in my system since I contracted it and I've tried everything in the books to fight/ get it to go dormant. I feel like I have one of the strongest strains of herpes and it's spread to other parts of my body. The reason I say this is because, for the past year
  13. Has anyone had a better experience with Valcyclrovir rather than Acyclovir?? Have been wondering which seems to suppress the virus more effectively and have been thinking about switching to Valcyclrovir as I’ve read that it combats the virus better since it had a better bioavailability? Which seems to work for y’all??

  15. "Hey!" - (Informal. hello: used as a greeting. Also known to be one of the worst Tinder opening lines!) So here we have a 26 y/o Male, who was always cheerful, motivated, happy, and most importantly full of love (until recently). As a person, who had always enjoyed the thrill of meeting new people and going out socializing plenty times a week, I had acquired marvelous soft skills in the "flirting" field let's say. I moved to a totally different country and started a new life here, but I lacked a little bit of social environment and wanted some love.
  16. Hi fam, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could provide any input to what my photos might indicate. Long story short, I received oral from my girlfriend on Aug 16th and noticed first symptoms of pain in penis area on Aug 18th. We also had protected sex. The very first symptom I noticed was burning sensation in my urethra only 2 days after the sex. Today is Aug 20th and I still have that sensation (it feels worse when I masturbate/ejaculate). Other current symptoms: dull lower abdominal pain and loose stool (not necessarily diarrhea). The thing that alarms me

    New and trying to understand

    All I have been doing is research over the past three weeks and I still don’t even know where to begin this post because it’s still so shocking. This post might be long but I hope someone will read it and help me. I feel like the doctors don’t really truly know about this topic in depth and I have no one to learn from and I’m so so scared. My first outbreak was 10 months ago. I had just had sex with a new person and started my period. The doctor said it was BV and a yeast infection. I knew that it couldn’t just be that. My labia was terribly swollen and cut up that it was so painful t

    MEDICINE OR NATURAL

    Hello everyone, I tested positive for HSV 1 & 2 yesterday. In these short 24 hours my emotion's have been on a roller coaster. Sometimes I feel like I am normal and I can get over this mentally but then sometimes I break down and cry and feel so nasty about myself and the decisions I've made in life. Anyways I'm not writing on here to throw myself a pitty party but instead to find out what you guys prefer. Do you take medicine if so do you take it daily or just when you have outbreaks? Do you do the natural way and if so what are your recipes? What do you think are the pros and cons
  20. So I have been getting pimples on my penis, 2 are chronic and do not move and react like a black head when squeezed, thin wormy thread of pus. Once in a while I will get a larger one midway up my shaft that can be more like a deep pimple under the skin that can pop. Happens about 3-4x a year. This does not hurt or crust over. The other day when cleaning my penis I noticed a rough patch under my forskin and found this small open wound. It alarmed me so I went to urgent care. After saying what I said above the practitioner said “that’s herpes” before seeing my penis. I later went to the VA urgen
  21. Hi everyone. I am still waiting on bloodwork, but the doc immediately told her nurse "this is definitely herpes" during my extremely painful examination. I do not yet know which type, but it is inside of my labia and inside my buttcrack below my anus. I went in because I thought I had a few veginal tears and an ingrown hair after a bit of rough sex. The man I believe to have contacted it but from has said he hasn't ever had any sores or reason to believe he has HSV, but my symptoms began 7 days after our first (of 4 total) nights of sex. He had since gone to the doctor who is skeptical
  22. Hey, I’m a 28 year old black female and I just was diagnosed with HSV type 2! The bad part about is that the doctor can’t give me a timetable for when he thinks I could have contracted it!! I am a survivor of sexual assault twice, once when I was six and again at the age of 21!! It hurts even worse now because I don’t even know where to start!! I feel like I’m being punished for something I did in my past life or something!! How am I supposed to date or just tell my next partner what I have and risk them leaving me, talking about me, or even harming me because of what I could expose them to!!

    Newly diagnosed & heartbroken

    Hi, I’m new here just like my diagnosis with herpes. I got it off someone who I’ve known for 10 years... we always had something between us but it was always bad timing and we were just children. Everything was amazing until I found out. I know it was him who’d given it to me as I had been tested before we had sex. Telling him was also the hardest thing I had to face apart from knowing I have to live with this condition. My doctor believes he’s asymptomatic which means I’m the lucky one who’s caught this and has to feel these sores. And fuck sakes this is so painful. I’m j
  24. Hi guys, I joined late 2014 when I had an outbreak of what was diagnosed clinically as herpes but tests came back negative. I had a horrendous fever for two week with huge painful ulcerated craters in my vagina. The first doctor told me I had syphilis! Then I went to a sexual health clinic where she said it was incredibly bad herpes. The whole thing was awful and nothing relieved the symptoms until the ulcers cleared up completely which took around a month. As I said the tests came back negative. Now four years later, almost exactly to the day weirdly enough I’ve noticed a white h
