27 and upset


Recommended Posts

I contracted HSV1 on my genitals from a guy that "didn't like how condoms feel" then he went back to his baby-momma (who knew he had herpes and was the one that told me hes known for years) my first outbreak was in Sept, and now I'm pretty sure I'm having another :( What do i do?

My first was July, second has been around a month or so now. Ebbing and flowing, I guess you could say. I'm taking Lysine, Echinacea, Eleuthero, Red Marine Algae and Acyclovir. Been getting milder this past week, as has my mood. If I wasn't drinking so much, it'd probably have gone away by now. I assume that's about all you can do, besides watching your arginine intake and not letting yourself get stressed, getting enough sleep etc.

Hi & welcome to the group TeflonGirl

Don't guys just love that one!! I don't like how condoms feel GRRRRRRRRRRR!! Mind you, they don't give 100% protection against HSV anyhow.

I was wondering if you have had any tests, either swabs or blood, or both better still? If not, good idea to do so. Visual exam isn't good enough.

It's a good idea to be on anti-viral medication 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.
