Teenager, just diagnosed..


Recommended Posts

So.. let me tell you my story..

I don't even know where to start. I'm confused...

Roughly two months ago, it burnt to pee. Bad. I was confused, and scared.

I told my parents, and I went to the Urinalogist (SP). He sent me to get blood taken, and I had a cystogram. He saw nothing wrong in the cystogram, but the blood results came back as followed...

HSV1 IGG: 4.12 Interpretation : Positive

HSV2 IGG: 0.57 Interpretation : Negative

So, I am now concluded that I have HSV1.

My doctor has not told me anything about it, except I have been in contact with the virus and I am now carrying it. I do not know if it is oral or genital. I have had no "symptoms" other than burning to pee.

I am young


and Depressed.

I suffer from anxiety, and this is not helping my situation.

Thank you for your help Ladies & Gentlemen, looking forward to the community

Hi Josh, welcome to the site.

If you have ever had sexual intercourse or had someone give you oral sex you could have genital hsv1. More than likely though you have it oral since that is where hsv1 prefers to be based.

If you do have it genital the chances of you passing it along are remote, so unless you have blisters down there assume you have it oral.

80% of the adult population has hsv1, so don't feel alone. I bet if your parents got tested one or both of them would have it too.

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

Good luck!

      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.
