How can I tell if I have it? worried!

Recommended Posts


Hi, I'm having a bit of a panic attack about this. I posted just now but don't think my post was very clear-

"I'm 25 have been with my boyfriend for 4 years and had 2 partners before that, one who I saw for 2 years and the other a couple of weeks. I also have vaginismus- if no one has heard of this it is a condition which means i'm unable to have penetrative sex or full gynecological examinations- hence why I am scared! To cut this short i'm worried I have herpes from genital contact, my bf has not had an std check since being with me and is sure he has nothing but for some reason I feel like I have caught something. I have small bumpy sore spot things on my fingers that seem to come and go and sometimes i'm very itchy "down there". My bf gets cold sores and one time he had a weird spot out break on his entire body that the doctor could not diagnose.

Now, i'm sorry for being here if this seems annoying but I just want some advice, as I can't really go to the doctor because of my vaginismus I'm not sure if i'm worrying over nothing. I read people don't always get out breaks but can have the virus, if this is the case should I be worried? Can anyone help me out, many thanks."

I'm mostly worried as I can't go to get checked out, plus if I go for a blood test they will be asking me all sorts of questions that I find it awkward and uncomfortable to explain. If anyone can help i'm very grateful.

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?

      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
