Hey guys basically had my first outbreak last week , had been really run down and unwell then developed sores down below.Went to my local GUM clinic and the dr basically said to me that I had a case of genital herpes and took swabs to check 100%.He gave me some aciclovir tablets to take and since taking them the sores have started to heal.However the guy i was seeing has been sleeping around so my Dr said this could of been in my system for ages and not neccesarrily from him.I feel so angry and dirty.I havent told anyone and i have noone to share this with until i found this forum.Has anyone got any tips for me or anything regarding relationships,diet and coping with it?

welcome to the board. first the feeling your having of feeling dirty is normal reaction but not correct. You are not dirty. you are the same person you were before this happen to you. as far as diet stay away from junk food and eat healthy diet. also remmeber this is your first outbreak which usually is the worsest and you may not ever have another ob again.

here is some info that might help you

great info must read for every newly diagnosed

i found this on another sight and I am cross posting it here. It great info. Handbook and video too this is great for all newly diagnosed

this is a free online resource for you and your partner if you haven't read it already. Terri Warren keeps it up to date with the latest information. it has all the basic info on genital herpes you need.

If you don't mind paying money, she also wrote a book this year "the good news about the bad news". It really goes into the psychological side of having herpes more than the free handbook does. There is also a free patient counseling video on her site too if your provider didn't already give you the valtrex herpes packet with the dvd in it -

Hey there beautyjunkie! Welcome! I hope you find this place as helpful as I have. I have done ooodles of research using this site. I have had all of my questions answered and everyone is incredibly helpful. No matter what questions you have, someone here is sure to have an answer or have a link to lead you to the answer. I just found out in Nov. and I am still having a hard time. But, i read something on here today... it is just a viral skin condition. and a cold is a virus and the flu is a virus too. Reading that made it seem not so horrible. So, i felt better. I am glad you are here. You are not alone. :)
