New Member, just diagnosed..

Recommended Posts


Hi, I was just diagnosed with genital herpes 2 days ago. I've been searching on the internet like crazy for home remedies to do.. its one of the most horrible pains i have ever experienced! :( i figure there are soo many people going through the same thing and it'd be great to talk to them, see if any of you have any pointers. This is my first breakout, i hear they are the worst.. Im only 15.. and its depressing me to know that this is for life! I really dont know what i should do.. so any pointers or advice i would appriciate SOO much..

Hi sweety and welcome...

I am soooo very sorry for what you are going through. My heart breaks for you! I have a son your age. I hope you have been able to talk to an adult and get help? As far as the pain goes, did the doctor put you on any meds? Also, try soaking in an epson salt bath and drink pleanty of water this dilutes the urine and makes it easier to go to the restroom.

You found a great site, lots of helpful info to the right. Also, after you make 2 post you can join in live chat.

Also on the forum there is a thread titled "connect with people your age" in that thread there is a "teen central" it might help you to be able to connect with people your age!

Good luck and hang in there!

Welcome :) I was diagnosed today and it sucks. I'm a few years older than you (22) but I understand how you feel about this being your life now. I just took an epsom salt bath and that really made me feel much better. I am so sorry that you have to experience this at your age, but just know you're not alone.

      (For my case: i am not diagnosed herpes. I had genital warts. 
      I can tell her a sex partner was diagnosed with HPV, and i pretty surely have it and that's why i do it with boxer short the next months. Hm.)   https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf https://www.cdc.gov/std/herpes/stdfact-herpes-detailed.htm

      How long after diagnosis did you start to have sex again? How did he get it on the lips?

      Hi,  I was wondering if you could describe your outbreaks or how much time it passed before you where correctly diagnosed. Or your overall experience. I am freaking out and just wearing my underwear feels uncomfortable.  How did they diagnosed you? Thank you in advanced

      I THINK this will benefit us. If the FDA allows more aggressive research in the deadliest virus programs, such as HIV gene editing, then off-targeting and other safety issues might already be solved before Dr. Jerome  starts editing hsv in humans.
