Dating with H after divorce


Recommended Posts

This is my first time here. It has been very helpful reading all of your posts. It gives me hope. I am recently divorced after contracting H years ago from my husband. It has never been a difficult thing for me until now.

I know alot of you feel my pain when it comes to dating. I did start dating a friend I had had for a long time. We had a connection I could only dream about. Things did get to the sexual point. So I did tell him and we had sex a few times. (Always with a condom and never during a OB). At first he seemed very supportive. After a week or so he said it weighed on his mind and didnt think he could deal with it. He said he thought I was the perfect woman for him other than that, and not to give up hope that we would be together someday. (Not sure what I'm supposed to be hoping for since my condition wont change) Unfortunately I have fallen for him and needless to say I am crushed. I recently had lunch with him (for closure sake) and he told me that he had had the flu the a couple of days before. I immediately got scared that maybe he got it because it is within that 20 days from exposure. Does it ever start that way? If it does will he get the physical symptoms or can it start that way and then have no other symptoms? I thank you all for your time.

Yes, very frequently, one gets flu-like symptoms after infection from a virus (any virus). If it isn't flu season and no one around him had the flu it would make me wonder. And no, he need not have any more symptoms than that to possibly have herpes.

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
