Not having a very good day today


Recommended Posts

I was taking medication for 10 days, since five days ago there was no sore what's so ever. I had protected sex yesterday and right after I finish I look at the site of the sores and they were red (not open)... then hours later they opened, and now I am back to square #1. It is very frustating. I am new with this stupid DX... I am driving my bf crazy, but he is very suportive...I am the one that is thinking too much into this. Right I am trying to get back on track and not to think about it, but everythime I go pee I check the little sore. It is so little with no pain or nothing. My medication ended yesterday. I was taking 400mg Acyclovir 3 times a day. He had some at his house for the oral herpes he gets, so now I am taking 2grams every 10 hours. He is also got tested for type 2, and we would know by Thursday. He is the only one I had told. I feel like telling my mom, but she has so many problems of her own for me to add this one, and then trying to educate her on the topic.

I am just venting out as I as getting used to this...:wavey:

It gets better...you will learn to live it and figure out what are outbreaks and what aren't. If your boyfriend gets cold sores there is a chance that you have type 1 genitally...and long term it usually means less outbreaks. Feel lucky that the sores don't hurt a lot. And your partner is supportive.

And remember don't panic or obsess...herpes loves stress! That is my biggest struggle having herpes...fighting the urge to constantly check (I had to take the hand mirror out of the toilet!)...it is hard not to think everything that happens in that area is herpes. I think it is normal...well, if you and I do it, it must be normal ;-)

You are not alone....and you will get used to it, promise!

Hello, My bf just got the test result today, and he is positive for both types. So i am thinking he is the one who gave it to me. Why? Because my blood test for type one came back negative, and the doctor said that is because my body has not created antivirus for it yet. He said the swab test came back for DNA type 2. My bf said that is not possible to get type 1 on your genitals.....I am so very confused. From What I am hearing type 2 is painful and I did not get any pain at all. My area is clear as of 2 days ago. I had masturbated just to see if this would bring an outbreak, but it does not. I am thinking that is very secure now for us to have sex because we are both positive for 1 and 2. He had never experience any genital gerpes yet. So who knows, i am thinking I probably esperience the type one on my genitals, but not 2.

I have to see what is going to happen from now on. :)

Thank you so much for you advise....

you absolutely can get hsv1 on your genitals. There are many members on this forum who have hsv1 genitally from oral sex.

Also every one reacts differently to the virus so you may or may not have painful outbreaks. Good luck to you.

      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?
