lost hope


Recommended Posts

hey guys, i really need some advice. i do not have confirmed genital herpes casue i have not been tested for it but i think i have it (iget dry red bumpy patches on that area). i think i got it from having oral sex with my monogonious girlfriend of 2 years. I am willing to accept that i have it and such but the real problem is i was having this sexual activity when i was not following my religious beliefs. since then i have become stronger in my faith and repented and looking onward. However, in my religion no girl would ever marry a guy like me who has genital herpes. Im mormon and im almost positive i will never find another mormon girl who will want to marry me. do any of you guys have any advice of what to do?

mormon or not..they should not be judging, thats not what god believes in, who was christ spending all his time with? with the sinners, the prostitutes,tax collectors,etc..ive often thought the same thing in my situation but i think if they claim to be christan and cant accept me then they are liers and are not christan.. pray about it..god will hear your request

Go get tested

From what you described it does not sound like you are a member of our 'club'. You need to go see a doctor and get tested.

And did you know that some estimate that between 80 and 90 percent of the adult population has hsv? So you are going to have a harder time finding a nice Mormon girl who doesn't have it than finding one that will accept you.

Come to the "Live Chat" room, there you will meet other nice people who are living through this.

Good luck!

JB

      The answer to this question is probably somewhere between most of them and all of them. As a point of clarity, you can do a blood test to see if your body has made antibodies to HSV 1 and/or HSV 2. The majority of people have been exposed to HSV 1 which normally causes cold sores around the mouth but is more often clinically silent. The percentage of people with exposure to HSV 2 is between about 20% and 40% with only some of these people having any outbreaks at all. That means that about every third poster on this forum has had an exposure to HSV 2 and probably doesn't know it. About 15% of Americans have genital herpes outbreaks. To the pornstar who said she didn't get it in the industry, she actually does not know where she got it. It could come from your first partner, last partner, or some partner in between. You can get genital HSV 1 from oral sex and not have an outbreak until years later and still have no idea who gave it to you. It is usually transmitted when an outbreak is not present. HSV is more or less a normal consequence of sex. Most people who have been exposed don't know they have been and are subject to 0 outbreaks or outbreaks every couple of months or when they get stressed. While I do know porn performers who are told not to film when they have an outbreak, antibody testing is relatively expensive when the result will not change someone's clinical outcome unless they choose to take Valtrex for prophylaxis, so it is not routine, nor is it routine if you go to your doctor for an STD check-up. These performers have unprotected skin-on-skin genital contact on a regular basis. It would be basically be impossible for a porn performer to not have a latent infection after 10-20 filmed scenes. That would be about 8 skin-to-skin contacts with herpes patients even if they were just having sex with random people in the general population, Add heavy partner porn performers to the equation, especially given the fact that the men are exposed to over 100 women in just a few years, and it is basically not possible that they don't have the virus.

      Hey @MyWarrior I think speaking further with your penis issues would be a good idea. We can't really tell much about what it might be, but it sure does not sound like genital herpes at all. Note that oral herpes causes issues orally and not anywhere on the body such as the penis.

      Hey @Ifeelempty that looks a fairly standard fordyce spot inflammation or abrasion. Herpes lesions (which would be much more significant than that if recently infected!) do not present like that, and you certainly wouldn't squeeze them with your finger nails (the pain would prevent that!).
