There are other more deadly STDs out there

To all,

I just want to share with you something. My friend was diagnosed with Herpes a couple months ago. He also had Gonorrhea. He was happy and relieved because it wasn't HIV. He is living with it, because he admits that God had given him another chance in life.

Herpes is not something anyone wants. But, none of us can imagine what kind of fear, despair, and pain that AIDS/HIV+ positive individuals live with on a daily basis. Or, even those who may right now be living in fear that they may have contracted the HIV virus. Their fear is much painful.

We all need to learn from the experiences and value every minute and second of life. I know I did.

950,000 cases of HIV divided by 293,195,362

.003% of the population is HIV+ positive in the United States.

I wouldnt worry about HIV. Its good to be aware of it, and reduce the risks, but I wouldnt worry about getting it.

I agree that we sometimes tend to be a bit paranoid regarding HIV.

But, any of you heard of those 5 porn stars who tested HIV positive within 2 weeks time? That is really scary and shows that anyone is vulnerable to infection, esp. if you are a female. 3 of 12 women that James performed are now HIV positive. the other 9 are still testing and quarantined for 3 months.

whats weird to me about the porn thing is people were all shocked about it....like, how could a group of people that have unprotected sex for a living contract HIV? At any rate, its still pretty sad.

internet,

The thing is that we don't know what these porn stars do outside of work? Maybe they have more sex out of work too?

The thing that is scaring people is that these porn stars get tested every 3 weeks routinely.

And, we always hear that it is hard to contract HIV for one-time encounters with HIV positive individuals. Well, virtually all the ones who got infected did so on one-time encounters. But, I heard that shooting the scenes can last a whole day or more. Their genitals must have been ravaged from all the wear and tear.

If I learned anything, one thing I won't go unprotected is ANAL SEX. All of them contracted most likely via ANAL. When you do anal, you are very much exposed to blood, which has more viral loads than semen or vaginal fluids.

I feel bad for bringing this up and my heart goes out to those who were infected. But, the thing to know is that HIV is out there and not as hard to contract as we seem to think.

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.

      Hey @JackThrowAway herpes causes an outbreak where it enters the body first and maybe a progressive spread. If it doesn't cause an outbreak at the entry site then it won't cause one elsewhere, it also won't 'jump' upon infection - it would be more likely that the lesions are continuous from the penis to the anus. Nevertheless, testing trumps symptoms or any interpretation of symptoms. The correct conclusive result arises when: you have a positive swab; or An IgG HSV-2 level over 3.5 (Herpeselect test).

      Slept with someone unprotected, roughly 2 weeks ago now. I felt generally unwell the couple of days after but I’d been drinking the whole weekend and didn’t have much sleep either of the days of that weekend so put it down to that. 6 days after I noticed these spots appear on the shaft of my penis. Along with symptoms of discomfort in my shaft in the couple of days prior to them appearing. No pain when urinating at all that I have noticed. They don’t hurt, itch or tingle and they don’t have fluid in from what I can see or feel if I squeeze them and have never burst? I went to a sexual health clinic to get checked up, they took bloods to do a full test and looked at the spots but said they saw nothing that concerned them but I’m not sure about that, any advice? The smaller spots under the shaft are just follicles I had diagnosed years ago and non-sti related.
