I feel like such a **** having genital herpes so young, but it only takes once I guess. Im not ready to have a relationship yet, so Im really just looking for a friend my own age to talk to :)

Do you live close to Atlanta? There is a support group here that meets monthly. Check the Calendar here if you are interested. It was a big help to me when I first found out.

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

Good luck!

Amazing

It will get better. It's just the stigma that comes along with it. It took me years to deal with it, but I have came to terms with it. Don't feel bad I have both types, so just keep your head up and smile through it. And don't think about it too much. I'm from the southern part of AL.

I am also from Alabama! I sent you a friend request! Wondering if you live near where I am from. I think I will be single for a long time. I agree with Celtics34 on this one about not knowing if I could find it in myself to even bring the subject up. It's so much easier for me to just push dating out of my life and focus on school, work, and aking care of my son.

      Amenamevir has a plasma half-life of 8-9 hours (as opposed to 2-3 hours for acyclovir), which means you're actively suppressing the virus for a much longer part of the day. Add to that the non-linear synergy of different mechanisms, and for many this combination could mean full symptom relief. We don't know yet, but it's not impossible. Can't wait for Amanalief to get approval for HSV and come to the US. It's all up to the FDA really. https://accp1.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/cpdd.630

      Doesn't this suck. Using protection and still catching this BS. Uggh, my life story!!

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.
