I'm new with some questions :)

Recommended Posts


Hey i'm new to this site :) my name is jessica and im almost 23 years old. I just got diagnosed last wednesday with HSV-2. I was getting a really itchy bum for like weeks, and then it became really raw and i was freaking out because it hurt when I peed because the pee touched my bum..lol

I'm kinda scared since the doctor wasnt really comforting at all, she was busy and rushing and just told me my test results and left. I had no idea I had it , and i'm seeing someone, and the hardest part was I told him expecting to be rejected because of what society thinks about hsv2. He gave me a big hug and said everything is going to be ok, i like you way to much to run away.

Oh btw does anyone with hsv2 on here get like a burning like a sunburn feeling ( sensitive to touch and temperature) in their thighs and it hurts to put pants on and stabbing pains in the right leg? wondering if its somehow related ? it feels like my nerves are like way aware and out there. I've been getting that feeling for about a year now and all the doctors ive seen about it have no idea what it is.

What you are feeling is called prodromme

Welcome to the 'club'!

Prodromme is the sensations you feel in your body prior to an outbreak.

pm me if you have any other questions, I have had this a long time and could probably answer most of them.

And come to the "Live Chat" room. There are many nice people there who could answer your questions and offer support. You are not alone.

Good luck!

      I have had a monogamous relationship for the last 6 years.  I did not have Herpes before the relationship.  My partner recently had an outbreak on the buttocks and was diagnosed with HSV2 about 2 months ago.  She said it was the first outbreak She had ever had. She has been taking valacyclovir for the last 2 months and we were intimate for the first time in about 4 months about a week ago.  Now I have an outbreak on my upper lip.  I read that this is not impossible, but rare. I wanted to ask others opinions on how HSV2 works, as I cannot help but find the situation really strange.  I totally understand that HSV2 can lie dormant for years, displaying no symptoms.  My partner says She has not been unfaithful, and I decided to believe her.  However, with this outbreak, a new doubt crept in, as I think it's really odd I would get an outbreak a week after being intimate, knowing I didn't have this before our relationship. I would appreciate hearing if this is possible, I love my partner and can't bear the doubt, but also don't want to feel I might be being blind.

      Hello, Im in the UK and have recently been diagnosed with herpes 2.  I am still coming to terms with it but i am keen to consider the stigma surrounding herpes.   If you don't mind.... would you tell me if you have told many people you have it?  What was their reaction?  Thanks guys x

      Hi Guys! I am newly diagnosed with HSV-2 and its the 7th day and my 1st outbreak is over. One week before the diagnosis I was at the prime of my life and the news gave me depression and I wanted to commit suicide knowing that I have a stigmatized NO CURE DISEASE. After a lot of research online I came across the combination herpes cure that I need to try. I have already chatted the support and they are quite informing in their responses about the 4-6 months protocol. Anybody who has tried it kindly share your sentiments and I will appreciate the insights... I feel pity for my life dear God why me please...

      Hi Guy! I am also two weeks into my first outbreak. This has made me do a lot of research for a permanent cure. I have seen Synergy Pharmaceuticals from Australia selling the combination herpes cure. Has anyone come across this? Does it look legit?

      I do pick them and pop them a lot so I think I’m just making it worse! Do they look like herpes to you though ?
