Here is my story.

I met this amazing guy (amazing!)....and we really hit it off....

we were doing great until my vagina started hurting.

I went to the doc and found out that I have genital hsv1.

It got really complicated w us very quickly.

He then got tested...and the doc told him that he is also infected and that the antibodies are new so that he must have gotten it from me.

We were having sex not knowing what has going on. I did not know!

Since he told me that he is also infected he has stop all comunication w me and will not return my phone call.

Iam really hurt and I am ashamed that I gave it to him.

I dont know what to do.

Man, thats tough!

If you didnt know, you did nothing wrong. Try not to be so hard on yourself. I think most people feel ashamed when they first find out but you will get past that. Your boyfriend probably needs some time to his self right now. Let have time to think about it. If I were you I would use this time to get educated, that way when he does come back around you can ease his worries with the facts. Once you get passed the innitial shock, you will realize that its nothing more than an occational, minor skin discomfort. My boyfriend knew I had HSV1 before we had sex, and he didnt care. He was/is very supportive. I ended up passing it on to him but he still didnt want me to feel guilty about it. He, (like most people), has a sexual history, and feels that he has made several stupid mistakes with women in the heat of the moment, and he could have been a lot worse off than he is now. There are so many terrible diseases/viruses/cancers out there. This is something that you can learn to deal with and life goes on.

I hope you guys work things out for the best~ chin up & take care

it's crap and i hate it!!

i have been going out with my boyfriend for over 3 years, and told him early in the relationship that i have h. we have been v careful over that time, but obviously not enough as he got his first outbreak last week. even though he says he's fine with it, that he knew it was bound to happen sooner or later, i am wracked with guilt. i probably feel worse than he does about it. i suppose it's just the worry of how often his outbreaks are going to be. during my first year, i had it pratically monthly. i just hope he doesn't have to suffer the same way as i did...

      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!
