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.

      Hmm, ok , So  there's a copper ribbon.  I didn't know that. Wonder whether people are aware of that.

      The prophylactic vaccine trial by GSK took 8 years and they were still not done with it.  That's because it takes time to see whether it works--it's a matter of many people having sex over time and that just takes a lot of time.   A shedding study is quicker, so therapeutic vaccines are quicker to test.  5-6 years I think.  Note that there was a study conducted last year that showed that there's a high correlation between shedding and outbreaks, suggesting that it might not even be necessary to track outbreaks, measuring shedding may be enough. It's unclear what they would be proving in case of a gene editing technique.  I think shedding would be a part of it.  But what else, if anything, I don't know. Anyway, it doesn't necessarily have to take a long time like the GSK prophylactic trials.

      I certainly hope this research continues. It all seems legit to me, but again, I'm no medical man (although I did play doctor a few times).

      This is good information to know. To go from continuous outbreaks to none all this time is encouraging. I wonder if after you've given it some time and this regimen proves itself, maybe you could title it, and type it for everyone to read. The more suggestions, the better! You mentioned you've suffered with Herpes I outbreaks. I have suffered with the type II, and I recently read that Lysine doesn't help with the type II. I don't know about that, because it really has helped me in years past. Anyway, by mentioning in your article that you have type I will help, because apparently something might work for type I that won't work for type II. I myself will get these products and add them to my daily garlic regimen, and perhaps I will be able to eat whatever I choose without triggering an outbreak. That's my big problem, wanting to eat the foods that trigger the outbreak!
