bexthe2nd

I was diagnosed August last year and am currently on my 2nd ob. I feel very lucky having read some of the posts on here, I had been with my boyfriend for 10 months when I found out and it's now been a year and 3 months for us, we're still together and he has no symptoms (though he is still to get tested...men they're useless!) He was very understanding about the whole thing, though thinking back I don't see why he wouldn't be. We were very unlucky, he had been away for 2 weeks and it was the first time we had seen each other, I had a cold sore but being uneducated about these things didn't really pause to think about the consequences...and a few weeks later I was diagnosed HSV1.

My 2nd ob began yesterday, it's very frustrating as the boyfriend and I hadn't seen each other in nearly 3 weeks and now it's back :mad: if anyone has any tips or help for preventing ob due to sex I would be eternally grateful, so far it has been the only trigger and we're finding abstinance rather difficult!

You can try the suppressive medicines. But other than that there are home remedies in the help section, including lysine.

      Kelly bean yes I had an ulcer in my mouth. I know it' unusual but as soon as he had told me that I got it swabbed and it came back positive. Then I had a blood test and that came back positive as well.   Anon222 Thank you it's just incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Especially being such a new thing to me.  It will change things though. I will never rest easy. I will always be worried about getting another one come up, I will have to pay expenses for preventative measures. I will have to tell everyone that wants to kiss me (not that I go around just kissing people but as this is life long never know how many people that may be) so it will be changing a lotg for me. I will never feel comfortable just kissing someone anymore. I will always be worried about passing it onto them. It changes my whole life. I will never be able to kiss a new born baby (If I ever have another child)  I will not be able to do so many things without stress and worry for the rest of my life:(

      Hey there Chicken, I agree with what helpme said. Really no one cares about OHSV-1. Not to diminish your feelings but I just want you to know that it’s going to be okay. You honestly don’t have to worry about this at all. As he also said you are now in the MAJORITY of people. Please just go on living your normal life this should not change anything at all! Good luck!

      I know blood test doesn't tell location. I know i have it orally since i had it as a child but i dont have any breakouts at all, the last breakout i remember was inside my lips when i was a kid. Like me my friends and my gf we are all asymptomatic orally. im just worried if the above mention symptoms say i have ghsv1?  and about disclosure im happy to tell. im not scared of it im just worried if i got it in the genitals, although all my doctors say im fine.

      I don’t understand this post. You seem highly concerned of having herpes for someone who already tested positive for herpes. Your girlfriend has tested positive for herpes. What more is there to freak out about? Blood tests do not tell you location, are you worried if you break up how you will handle disclosure To someone else? That’s where I’m getting confused.
