I just found out the day after Thanksgiving...so it's still pretty new for me also. At first I thought about it every day and would cry a lot. I thought I would never get it off my mind, but just a couple weeks ago I noticed that I don't spend near as much time thinking about it anymore, I'm doing good : ) I'm no longer with the guy I got it from...we had been dating for a few months and he didn't know he carried it. He never had an outbreak : / So he felt (and still does) absolutely terrible. We still hang out once in a while and talk bc we are the only ones who know that we have the virus in common and its nice to have someone to talk to about it.

As time goes by I realize more and more how minor this virus is compared to so many other things. Especially working in health care, I see a lot and know that it could be so much worse.

How are you dealing with things?? Are you still with the person who gave it to you?? I'm so glad to have someone local to talk to also : )

The only support group I know of is online through Yahoo groups called SWAG. It's an email thing, but they do try to get together for social interaction every so often. Most of the people are down in Milwaukee-Madison area.

      Okay.... makes sense.... I hope it is helping.  Again, I would ask about a Rx for valacyclovir instead of acyclovir.... valacyclovir gets more acyclovir into your system than taking straight acyclovir.

      Hi @Throwaway765 yes that all makes sense and you’ve pretty well reached the right conclusions except for a very significant fact!! You are right, receiving genital HSV-2 from oral sex is unheard of, just not feasible given how people have it and whether it actually sheds in infectious quantities or not. Safely rule this out. Now HSV-1; once you have this as you do orally, you have immunity against infection anywhere else on the body, it is also not feasible.  The symptoms you describe are also not related to herpes in the absence of lesions.

      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?
