Diagnosed yesterday.


Recommended Posts

I'm in complete shock. Part of me feels like I deserve this for not waiting to be with someone until after I was in a secure relationship. I'm also scared about who out of my friends I can tell and what's going to happen the rest of my life. That and I'm in absurd amounts of pain right now. I can't help but think who would want to be with someone that has a disease like this? I've had 1,000 thoughts running through my head and I just don't know what to do. As the sn says, I am lost.

Hi lost! I'm glad you have started the step to get support and educate yourself more!! I on e felt like you did but now 8 months in I feel great and don't you worry you will be there too!! If you don't want to deal with the burden of telling non hsv infected boyfriends/girlfriends there is many places to meet us that already have t and you wont have to deal with possible rejection or not. You will find most people will actually support you through it if you properly educate them, and not just tell anyone. If you ever need to get anything of your chest message me and I'll help you the best I can!

What will happen with your life now... You will still love, you are still beautiful and worthy of a great person to share in your life. You feel like everyone that looks at you looks at you in disgust but man are you wrong. A man hits on me I just giggle because it's a reminder I am still my awesome self, and so are you! The first and only person I told was my best friend and I have great support. Your sex life will be great again once you gt past the bump in the road too :)

      Hi @CathM if you received oral sex in the days before the sores first appeared then it is important to be sure of type - culture tests do not type. Ask to see your result and see what it says. Is your partner going to test? This is also helpful.

      Hello@WilsoInAus I only know that they took a swab and then I was notified that I was positive for HSV 2. I don’t know have any knowledge about whether it was a culture test?

      Hi @CathM and welcome to the website. Yes there is little doubt you were infected by this new partner. This would have happened 2-10 days before the sores appeared. There is one question to settle quickly. Was your swab test a PCR with a result of HSV-2 detected. Or was it a culture test?

      Hello. Just been diagnosed with HSV2 after a swab test. Absolutely devastated at the diagnosis. Had symptoms after sleeping with my new partner. Symptoms started about 6 weeks after our first encounter. Did I get it from him? We split just before the diagnosis. I feel like my life is over, please help 😥

      A lot of students looking for online assignment help services because they face issues in completing their assignments and homework. The problem is, Many of them are busy with their other activities and others face tough life routines. That's why students seek CIPD assignment help services because it helps students to finish their assignments and homework in a very short time.
