Greetings to all!

Lost in the Clouds

Recommended Posts

I am grateful for this site. It's helping me cope. I was looking forward to the new year however now I wish I could turn back the hands of time. I received the news from dr on Jan 5 after having std screening! I tend to have standard std done yearly however it has been a few years since I was tested for HSV. So being shock is an understatement when I was informed of my new status...esp being I have not been intimate in about 9 months. Nor do I have any symptoms or so I thought. Looking back I can recall having what I thought was a sensitive pimple on the pubis area but it went away within a couple of days. So maybe it was the HSV.

I have many concerns/questions. I've never been married, 40 and no kids and worry that now it will definitely never happen for me. I'm trying to keep positive and whether or not I find Mr Right, I will be okay!! I do think about it constantly but I am determine to have a positive mindset so I keep reminding myself that I will be okay. I recently started dating someone. We had not gotten sexual yet but I know it was headed there. Last night I broke the news to him and he seem to take it well but I encourage him to ask questions and research on his own. And informed him if he chooses not to continue a relationship with me, I can understand that. If it's not meant to be...it's not! I feel somewhat relieve to have gotten the 1st tell done(having to inform a potential partner). I do believe it will easier with time.

It's unfortunate we have HSV but I am thankful there is a place for us to chat.

Welcome to the 'club'!

Most people get this from someone who does not know they have it. Getting tested was a wise thing for you to do. Now you can help prevent someone else from getting it and spread the word about this.

I do not feel it is unfortunate that I have it, it is a very little, very common, mostly harmless virus. I have given the 'talk' many times and have never been rejected. It has not stopped me from doing anything or anyone I wanted. Many people have told me that getting herpes changed their lives for the better.

Come to the Chat Room, there you will find many nice Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

      Thanks for your response! I received unprotected oral 10 weeks ago and immediately after had stinging in my glans and weird nerve pain. I am positive for HSV1 due to cold sores I got as a child, but as recent as 9 weeks after this exposure have tested negative for HSV2.    im nervous that I may have acquired hsv1 again on my genitals since HSV2 is rarely acquired from oral sex and doesn’t shed hardly at all, but haven’t seen any sores yet. Just weird symptoms and this started recently in my buttcrack when I was taking antibiotics.   Any advice or perspective would be greatly appreciated. @WilsoInAus

      Hi @Throwaway765 and welcome. There is absolutely no concern over this being related to herpes. Something must be concerning you as to the possibility of herpes… what is it?
