miss scared

hi there

just hoping theres someone to talk to around my age who is affected with genital herpes i am 19

Im having a reallly hard time coping after i was diagnosed a few months ago...i still dont know where i got it from. i always use condoms except with my ex bf who isnt affected (that he knows) and he refuses to talk to me about the possibility he gave it to me.

Ive only had 4 sexual partners and i just didnt think it could ever happen to girls like me. :(

Being so young i dont have any one to confide in and ive been trying to deal with this alone and am not succeeding..

i hear people giving encouraging words to other people and i just dont feel like that. I am struggling to see the bright side or accept that it is a part of me for the rest of my life.

How do u overcome the fear of ever being intimate with another person again?

I dont think boys my age will accept it, or treat me like they used to or respect my privacy.

Ive been so depressed since the day i found out and i want to feel better

help anyone who can relate

Well, I am not your age, not anywhere close to it! :D

But, I can relate to how you feel. It is a very lonely feeling when you are diagnosed. You may never know where it came from and unfortunately condoms are not 100% safe.

I think finding a support group in your area would greatly benefit you. You are NOT alone! 1 out of 5 of us have this! you are very young. You will find someone to except this virus. Hang in there! lots of great info and people with lots of experience on this site.

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.

      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.

      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.

      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.

      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
