i agree. I would give almost anything in the world just to know that one day I would be herpes free or at least not have outbreaks or shed the virus at all...

You can be 'ok' today

Herpes for the most part is a common, harmless virus. With stress management, diet and supplemental meds you can control it.

I have had this virus many years and it means nothing to me. I live a normal healthy life that includes dating non h women. I have given the 'talk' many times and have never been rejected.

Come to the "Live Chat" room. There you will find many 'ok' people there just like you.

Good luck!

JB

no it does not seem very likely a somewhat effective vaccine will likely be on the market in under 5 years. I expect a completely effective vaccine in a decade if not less.

success with the talk?

JB, How do you give the talk without getting rejected? I have given it twice and rejected both times. It totally depresses me and I start from the bottom again. I am scared that I will never find someone ever again. My boyfriend broke up with me two days ago when I told him and I was devastated! Please help!

      I to have one outbreak after another. Never been tested but I know I have it . I would love advice on how to help with lesions on my labia.  Those hurt the worst and last the longest .  I have found if I take a pin and pop the ones on the regular skin and cover them with coconut oil salt scrub ,it drys them up and almost gone immediately and dont spread near as bad .  As I said I have lesions now and I cant seem to make them better . They hurt so bad .   I am new to this and have no idea how I got it. Been with the same person for years .

      I jus recently found out I have hsv. The first test came back negative they said it was jock itch but I had another lil spot pop up in the crease of my leg an that came back positive. I was so broken at that moment. That someone couldn’t have told me so we could have took actions to prevent me from getting it. I understand well all have it but some people’s is active an some people’s aren’t. I have some questions tho. Ever since I have been diagnosed I have been getting these lil spots poppin up on my legs knuckles an other places that itch tremendously bad idk if it’s bc I’m overly paranoid bc I’ve found out I have this or if there is something else wrong w me   I’m embarrassed to go to the doc about it this has really put me into a deep depression an I found this site hoping to get answers an support on how to deal with this I was praying that maybe this was all a bad dream but unfortunately I was wrong. Please help

      Same thing happened to me not long after having unprotected sex.  I have not tested positive for HSV, but I experience what you are in that area

      Diagnosed a year ago. Tried suppression therapy to no avail. Dr prescribed 500mg Valtrex increased to 1000g no help. Two HIV test negative. The worst experience ever. Tried oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, lysine, Multi vitamin. Just read because I’m peri menopausal it might be hormones. Outbreaks are constant hsv 2.  If anyone can can relate, I’m pleading for insight.
