Hi

tlt0109

Hello everybody--I'm new to this site, in need of help. I just ended things with my fiance. He gave me genital herpes and HPV. I was diagnosed on my 40th birthday back in January and stayed with him because I didn't think anybody would want me with 2 STDs, so I stayed with him despite the abuse heaped upon me. I just finally got so tired of being put down so much, for so long, that I told myself that if I stayed single for the rest of my life, it would be better than what I was dealing with. I'm so ashamed, and so sad. I'm having a really hard time with this. :cry:

I don't know about HPV

But I do know you can live a health full life with genital herpes. I know this for a fact because I do. I have had this virus many years and have dated many non h women with no problems.

There are many informative articles here that you should read. The more you know about this virus the more you will see how harmless it mostly is.

Good luck!

JB

Hi tlt0109. I read this and another one of your other threads and my story is a bit similar to yours. My ex boyfriend knew he had herpes and gave it to me and I stayed with him for a couple months because I didnt think anyone else would want me because I had it. And I am still having a hard time dealing with the fact that I feel like I cant have a normal sex/love life anymore. I havent dated anyone since. And like you I feel the same way you do so ashamed and so sad. But I am very happy I found this site and I dont feel as much alone anymore after reading some of the threads. We can get through this together

Hi there, you definately aren't alone...hpv is even more common in woman than genital herpes...I myself have hpv, and oral and genital herpes (I don't know yet whether my genital herpes is type 1 or type 2)...so I have more on my plate so to speak so that's like a triple whammy...and I can attribute these to 2 guys that I was with...a lot of men and women have hpv and don't know it...same as with genital herpes...so if you ever date a sexually active male, he probably already has something...I would suggest getting him tested before you take things further.

      Give it a try and report back to us. It's pretty safe vaccine approved by the FDA.

      Have you tried changing your GP surgery? A decent doctor must surely realise that having back to back outbreaks warrants long term suppressive medication.  Aciclovir is available at very low cost to the NHS. I'd be firm with your doctor in what you'd like to do and make it clear you are educated on the relevant issues.  Don't be ashamed to talk to your GP. It is confidential.  FYI - walk in sexual health clinics (separate health record) are only as allowed to dispense a limited amount on the basis of episodic treatments.

      I agree, herpes doesn’t show up as discrete little dots like your pic.

      @Kurdt01Thank you! Very validating! And yes many doctors are so uninformed and misinformed it's incredibly frustrating.  ur right in multiple forums I've seen commenters invalidate someone's experience with herpes which is so weird. There's a wealth of experiences similar to both of ours but people put their hands to their ears and drill home "herpes is just a minor rash outbreak, nothing more."

      I got the zinc acetate from an pharmacy in my town, they can't sell reagents but I know the pharmacist. I cost me about 10 € a 50 gr bottle, enough for a decade at the current rate of consumtion. Otherwise it is quite easy to get, you can buy it from a laboratory or even in ebay. I apply the treatment on my glans about 2-3 times a week, I've never had any problem or adverse effect so far.
