so I'm new

Recommended Posts


And yes this is more of the same old same old. The doctor got my results back and she told me today that I have been exposed to HSV 1 and 2.

So I tell the lover and then he won't talk anymore.

Reading through some of the posts I see that so many people are going through the same thing. And it makes me feel better. I've never had any signs and symptoms of herpes. I don't even know where I got it or from whom. I don't know if the lover has it. I just feel sad and confused. The only reason I got the stupid blood test done is because the lover's ex said that she had an STD. So to be on the safe side, I got checked for everything. Now I wish I hadn't. I mean, it's not going to kill me or anyone else...so why do I need to know???

Confused and sad in MI

It's better to know, even if it sucks at first, because then you can to everything in your power to educate and protect future partners, and perhaps loved ones. Even though you may not have symptoms, people you transmit it to may and it's not fair to put someone as risk without their knowledge. That being said, that really sucks that "lover" wasn't receptive to the news. But, if it doesn't work out with him, there are plenty of fish in the sea and there is a growing population of people dealing with the same exact thing you are. You're so not alone, I guess knowing that makes me feel a little better. Best of luck to you!

      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.
