You can get through it...it's not the end of the world.

Recommended Posts


I was a Senior in high school. Met this guy through a friend, thought he was pretty cool. We started hanging out..he was 21 at the time. I was 17. We had sex and started seeing each other, basically every day. He was my first.

The relationship started getting abusive. I was getting emotionally, physically, and mentally abused. Filed a domestic violence report..tried to get a restraining order, wasn't granted one. Relationship lasted for about a year and a half. I found out in late December 2007 early January that I had herpes and HPV. I was so mad at him. I called him and told him even though I did not want to talk to him anymore, just so he would know, and he told me that I was lying or I probably got it from some guy (when I never cheated on him). He then told me later on that he knew he had it. So that really pissed me off. And made me extremely upset to think that he would do that to someone.

When I found out, I thought my life was over. I told my 3 closest friends, and people I knew who have done things with the guy. I thought I would never have sex again, never be in a relationship, never be able to get married or have kids..I felt worthless. Then as I was getting out of that relationship, I met another guy. I told him on the second date. And he was very accepting. I stopped seeing him about 2 months ago.

I then met another guy who accepted it. Luckily, I haven't been rejected yet. That is what I am afraid of. He took it well, but things just didn't work out.

I then started talking to a guy I went to hs with. When things started getting more serious, I told him and he started to gradually back away, but he did have a semi-sexual encounter with me. But he stopped because he was scared. So things ended there...

Next, I met a guy online. He lives pretty close, about 40 minutes away. We have been talking for about 2 months, I have told him everything, he has made a few mistakes in his life...and he is accepting it because he is not looking at what i have, he's looking at the person I am.

I met him and he's perfect. But see my post "Worried".:???: I feel so stupid.

      ANd eight hours is on a surface...on a towel who knows. The eight hours was a quote off a thread a long time ago of worst case senerio. Obviously it doesnt survive double touching unless its some weird arse almost immediate thing off a shedding site and this is all WORST case scenerio. HSV shouldnt be treated with stigma...but for everyones well being it should be treated as carefully as poss. It is a highly contagious condition and can be difficult to diagnose and GP's will let you walk away thinking you are clear when you are not if you do not do your due diligence.    

      I knew more about it than the specialists at the hospital I was refereed to.

      I have seen your advise on a few threads and to be honest while I am over careful at times you are not careful enough. This can absolutely happen and people should be well aware of the fact to prevent it from happening. I supposedly have good immunity on labs too. You just cant tell who will pick it up. It can live on surfaces for up to eight hours and towels that are wet and warm and that make micro abrasions when rubbed on skin are ways that transmission that can occur. You will often find out more by spending many hours reading on threads than your doctors. SO no it doesn't always just involve a cut on the skin. How do you think people get it else where.

      So please DO NOT swear at me as this is a possibility and this person should careful tick all his bases before ruling it out, cos on the rare case it is I wouldnt want his life totally ruined. Cos if it gets everywhere your life kinda is.

      It's called caring.
