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.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
