New, scared, and confused

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I am going to the Dr tommorrow to get the results from the culture that the Dr took from a large rash/bump on the tip of my, well ya know. He said he feels pretty sure that it is GH and I guess I will find out sure tommorrow. Oddly enough, he gave me a blood test back in APril when I first had an outbreak and I tested positive for HSV-1 but not 2, so therefore he did not initally think it was herpes. I had some sores on me for months at a time, almost back to back.

I thought that outbreaks only lasted for up to 2 weeks at a time, not 2 months?!?

I dont know what to do because I am so nervous about people finding out. I have an entertaiment job that forces me to shower and change with my coworkers and I am so afraid of them seeing the H or noticing my changed behavior in the changing room, I DONT KNOW what to do!

Any comfort, advice, ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

HSV-1 is herpes... and it's possible that you have HSV-1 (which is oral) in your genital area.

I have no idea why one person's OB last longer than the other...

I'm having one evey other week right now myself..

Hi and welcome

If you look through the posting, everyone's obs are different, so there is no way of knowing how long they will last.

I have GHSV 1, from oral sex.

Good luck with the results.
