Not happy to be here.

Recommended Posts



I found out that I have genetal herpes two months ago. I have been very angry and hurt. I remember when the doctor told me I cried, but after that I just felt angry and betraied. I had a feeling that my boyfriend was cheating on me and well herpes was the proof and the outcome of his infidelaty. 7 faithful years of my life I gave to him and this is my pay back. We are no longer together. I can never trust him. What if he cheats again? How about this time he gives me AIDS? I couldn't take that chance. I would rather live the rest of my life alone than take another risk with that man. He has ruined me forever!!! I know that my feelings will pass and I will get back to living, but I just can't help the way I feel right now.

Hello there. I've been diagnosed just 3 days ago...

did your ex really cheat? Is it proven? It's a myth that once you're diagnosed w/ HSV, your partner is automatically cheating. Maybe he doesn't know he has it too? But I understand your feelings. I've been there... and still in there, actually. Let's just take care of ourselves better this time... and there's a good reason why this is happening to us. Maybe we're meant to be stronger than others. We'll get through this emotional hooplah one step at a time...

Cheer up :) Your life isn't over yet, beautiful things are yet to come. :)

      Almost certainly that is not herpes. There are a number of diseases that can cause your symptoms, not all of them infectious. If you haven't done so already, go see a doctor as soon as you can.

      Seems likely that you had an asymptomatic infection and now you are having very mild recurrences. Asymptomatic infection is by far the most common case, in particular for HSV1 positive people. It could be a genital reinfection with HSV1, unlikely, or most likely a new HSV2 infection, there is no way to tell without a blood test. It's been long enough for an IGG test but don't bother testing for HSV1, you can already assume you are positive and have been for most of your life. I don't know about how it is where you live, but where I live I don't need to ask any doctor to get tested, I can just go into a clinical lab and order the test for €40. If your test returns negative for HSV2, don't worry about putting her at any risk regarding HSV1, she will have the same risk from anyone else. Acyclovir cream won't do any good, you should stop it (it increases the risk of getting an acyclovir resistant strain). Otherwise, your recurrences are so mild and far apart that it isn't worth it to do any treatment for now, so don't be scared about your health, chances are it'll get better with time. AND ALWAYS WEAR A CONDOM

      Doing a little research, it seems that Amenamevir  and Pritelivir are definitely not chemically identical. How similar are these drugs really?

      I have been working out regularly after being diagnosed in may with ghsv1.  First 3 weeks were awful but haven’t had any OB, symptoms at all since.  I also haven’t been eating as healthy as I should be.  Feel like I never had it. Hope it stays this way.  I think working out helps.  Just my view so far.

      Based on current HIV treatment, I would imagine they will create a one-pill combo of pritelivir and valtrex and sell it as a daily pill. But once a week pritelivir + valtrex might also work in the meantime.
