Just found out

Recommended Posts


I've been married for five years and I've only ever been with one man sexually.. my husband. I guess because of this, I naively thought that I was not at risk for any STDs. However, recently a pap smear came back positive for mild dysplasia (CIN1) and the HPV test came back positive for high-risk HPV (18 & 58 ).

I was completely shocked as I was told that HPV was transmitted sexually so I requested a STD test as well just in case and to my absolute horror, it came back negative for HSV-1 but positive for HSV-2. (IgG reactive at 4.96).

I have absolutely NO IDEA that I was infected with so many things as I have had absolutely no symptoms of anything. No pain. No itching. No redness. No sores. Nothing.

Neither has my husband.

I'm kinda feeling quite stigmatized now and absolutely worried because it really seems I am at an extraordinarily high risk of coming down with cervical cancer. :cry:

Hello, good thing that you get yearly pap smears. This ensures for the most part that your cells do not become abnormal and progress to full blown cancer. If they do become abnormal there are ways to remove those cells like the leep procedure. So as long as you get your yearly pap smears, you should be okay. Be as healthy as possible. A high percentage of woman who are sexually active have hpv so you are not alone. As far as having herpes goes about 40% or more of people do not have any symptoms and do not know they are carriers of the virus until they get tested.

      I am fortunate enough to live near one of the most prestigious hospitals in the USA that rates high in infectious disease diagnosis & treatment. I went to a specialist and asked direct questions including about casual sex. Firstly, I have ghsv1. She said: Casual sex is NOT off the table. When someone chooses to have casual sex, they are accepting the risk of contracting an STI. There is no obligation to disclose in this situation unless going without a condom. The risk is extremely low from a one time protected encounter . Don't do it if you are having symptoms. If you have sex with this person repeatedly, especially if you go without protection then you should disclose. If someone rejects you for it she says he's an asshole and a germaphobe. Because it's no big deal

      I wanted to validate your choice. He saying 500mg. Plus he was saying it was his favorite for HSV.

      Immediately after it clears Phase 3, they might price Pritelivir in an exorbitant fashion and only prescribe it to immunodeficient patients (AIDS). I'm also curious how fast HSV is expected to evolve resistance against Pritelivir.

      So I disclosed for the first time last week. I was feeling confident after reading all of the positive disclosure stories out there. I was armed with the stats and presented the information in a calm manner as recommended. I was happy to find out that the guy already had a lot of knowledge about it because had an ex w the same issue. It was nice to have sex without having to worry about harboring a secret, I felt normal for once   I got a text from him in the AM and I was hoping for the usual "had a great time, can't wait to see you again" but instead he was blithering on about being paranoid about the contact. We exchanged one more message that day, and today I sent one, no response..... pretty certain I've been ghosted.  I am back to that dark place where I feel like I'm unlovable / unfuckable dreg of society. I'm a single parent which doesn't help, nobody wants a relationship w someone like me... add the herpes and I might as well be a 400 lb amputee on welfare with an IQ of 70. I feel like I am going to have to eventually "settle" for someone that is willing to be with me, but I don't really like them. I feel that a man that is willing to accept this is probably an unwanted outcast himself.  So ultimately I fear I will have nobody, or settle for a guy that disgusts me

      Maybe I should up my intake of olive leaf?
