Hello everyoe. I'm a 24 year old woman from the UK. I've been living with my partner for 3 years, but recently I made a stupid mistake and slept with someone else. Neither my one night stand nor I knew he had herpes until I got horrible looking sores a week later. I have to wait another week orso to get more teststo see if he shared anything else with me. God help him if he has given me anything else.

My partner is being great about it, can't ask for more support.

I just feel so crappy about it. I feel like I can't enjoy sex with my partner anymore as he doesn't want to catch it and advice on whe I'm likely to pass it on & when I'm not is unclear.

I was given aciclovir (5 tabs a day for 5 days) and some numbing cream. I'm taking various suppliments and vitamins to boost my immune system too. Is there anything more I can do?

hi there. sorry to here about your situation. the main thing to do babe is too keep yourself healthy, keep taking vitamins or multivitamins and excercise(yoga, running any kind). your partner will have to wear a condom when you shed your skin down below so he doesnt catch it. but thats about everything you can do. also in england you can by some numbing cream called lidocaine at the pharmacy so the next time you feel an out break coming on you can use that so your not in complete agony. hope that ive been some help. if you ever need to chat im always here. take care bye x

Thaks cupcake. The blister type things didn't hurt really, I just felt like I had thrush or something. I'm lucky,some people are in agony with it, mine doesn't seem so bad. I had no problems urinating, just a little discomfort.

I have the doctor tomorrow to see about getting something I can take daily, as reccommended by people in the chatroom, to reduce the risk of passing this to my partner. I'm so glad I have his support.

I can live with the itching, blisters & discomfort when I pee, I just don't want to pass it on. I know I can't prevent it entirely, but there's a lot I can do to minimise it. I intend to do what I can.

The guy who gave it to me doesn't believe that it was him. Probably of the lucky ones who have minimal symptoms, or he knew and just didn't educate himself. That said, ff I hadn't come down with the most horrid flu I've ever had and had an unusual feeling down there I might have been ableto believe I'd had it all along.

I'd been for STD checks often (especially when I was single) and was never offered a test for herpes. Why do the clinics not think this is important?

      Yes and I have received quite a number of complaints about you too... people wondering why you haven’t been banned for such flagrant lying. Anyways, it matters not. Readers can see what is the truth, and truth is all that matters.

      @WilsoInAus talking to you is like talking to the wall, follow your path and do not give importance to my comments and received complaints from other users of how you judge who has problems with the community of hsv are you, doctors are too wrong do not know everything and you who have no medical and academic training will judge a doctor who with a blood test and a culture diagnosed me with hsv-1 (I'll tell you a phrase that a doctor told me you're not going to judge my diagnoses that's why I I left the mother 8 years studying) _______________________ hablar contigo es como hablar con la pared siga su camino y no le dé importancia a mis comentarios e recibido quejas tuyas de otros usuarios de como los juzgas el que tiene problemas con la comunidad de hsv eres tú, los médicos se equivocan demasiado no lo saben todo y tu que no tienes ninguna formación médica y académica va a juzgar un médico que con un examen de sangre y un cultivo me diagnostico hsv-1 ( te diré una frase que un médico me dijo tu no vas a juzgar mis diagnósticos por eso me partí la madre 8 años estudiando)

      No I’m sorry that is not the case. You have lied and deceived to feed your own paranoia. That is unacceptable behaviour anywhere, particularly this behaviour. Our readers understand perfectly. It’s time to reflect upon this atrocious behaviour. Please comeback when you’re prepared to be mature. I’m sorry no one has been able to help you overcome your psychological problems regarding herpes.

      lo que tú no entiendes es que no todos tienen los mismos síntomas y los mismos brotes hay gente que no tiene síntomas y sabe brotes recurrentes mucha gente tiene síntomas sin brotes visibles heno asintomáticos y sintomáticos muchos doctores confunden un brote de hsv a una espinilla (acné ) y viceversa _______________________ @WilsoInAus what you do not understand is that not everyone has the same symptoms or the same outbreaks there are people who do not have symptoms and get recurring outbreaks many people have symptoms without visible outbreaks there are asymptomatic and symptomatic many doctors confuse an outbreak of hsv to a pimple (acne) ) and vice versa

      @WilsoInAus estas muy mal, mi  diagnostico de hsv fue sólo por escuchar mis síntomas sin pruebas de sangre eso fue a los 20 días la prueba de sangre fue casi al cumplir un mes además todos las personas son diferentes el hsv no dura mucho en infectar células epiteliales en muchos casos a los 15 días de la infección ya puedes obtener anticuerpos hay gente que dura meses hay gente que dura menos de un mes porque tiene que ser igual para todos? _____________________ you are very bad, my diagnosis of hsv was just by hearing my symptoms without blood tests that was 20 days after the blood test was almost one month later all the people are different the hsv does not last long in infecting epithelial cells in many cases after 15 days of infection and you can get antibodies there are people who last for months there are people who last less than a month because it has to be the same for everyone?
