Hi :)

Recommended Posts

livinglife06

So... I was basically diagnosed with herpes today. It still feels weird to say that. They took a viral sample or something of that nature to send to the lab. Those results will come back in 3-4 days. He gave me a prescription for the generic form of valtrex and sent me on my way.

I cried instantly and basically all morning. I've told my mom and my boyfriend (presumably who gave it to me). He had no idea and has never had any sort of ob or symptoms...except for cold sores in the fall and winter. He really wants to stay together and make things work, which seems like a relief.

This has been really stressful and I feel like there's a neon sign over my head with an arrow like "herpes right here". I know it's not the case, but it still feels that way.... Well I hope this place makes me feel not so alone.

So hi everyone :)

Welcome to the club!

You are going through the various stages of grief.

Learn all you can about this and you will see that it really is not that big of a deal.

Since your boyfriend has cold sores, you probably have genital hsv1 and got it from him performing oral sex on you. Hsv1 does not like to be genital and you more than likely wont suffer as bad as if you had hsv2 genital.

Come to the chat room, there you will find many nice people who can share their stories with you.
