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?

thankyou :wavey:x

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. :)

      Yes and I have received quite a number of complaints about you too... people wondering why you haven’t been banned for such flagrant lying. Anyways, it matters not. Readers can see what is the truth, and truth is all that matters.

      @WilsoInAus talking to you is like talking to the wall, follow your path and do not give importance to my comments and received complaints from other users of how you judge who has problems with the community of hsv are you, doctors are too wrong do not know everything and you who have no medical and academic training will judge a doctor who with a blood test and a culture diagnosed me with hsv-1 (I'll tell you a phrase that a doctor told me you're not going to judge my diagnoses that's why I I left the mother 8 years studying) _______________________ hablar contigo es como hablar con la pared siga su camino y no le dé importancia a mis comentarios e recibido quejas tuyas de otros usuarios de como los juzgas el que tiene problemas con la comunidad de hsv eres tú, los médicos se equivocan demasiado no lo saben todo y tu que no tienes ninguna formación médica y académica va a juzgar un médico que con un examen de sangre y un cultivo me diagnostico hsv-1 ( te diré una frase que un médico me dijo tu no vas a juzgar mis diagnósticos por eso me partí la madre 8 años estudiando)

      No I’m sorry that is not the case. You have lied and deceived to feed your own paranoia. That is unacceptable behaviour anywhere, particularly this behaviour. Our readers understand perfectly. It’s time to reflect upon this atrocious behaviour. Please comeback when you’re prepared to be mature. I’m sorry no one has been able to help you overcome your psychological problems regarding herpes.

      lo que tú no entiendes es que no todos tienen los mismos síntomas y los mismos brotes hay gente que no tiene síntomas y sabe brotes recurrentes mucha gente tiene síntomas sin brotes visibles heno asintomáticos y sintomáticos muchos doctores confunden un brote de hsv a una espinilla (acné ) y viceversa _______________________ @WilsoInAus what you do not understand is that not everyone has the same symptoms or the same outbreaks there are people who do not have symptoms and get recurring outbreaks many people have symptoms without visible outbreaks there are asymptomatic and symptomatic many doctors confuse an outbreak of hsv to a pimple (acne) ) and vice versa

      @WilsoInAus estas muy mal, mi  diagnostico de hsv fue sólo por escuchar mis síntomas sin pruebas de sangre eso fue a los 20 días la prueba de sangre fue casi al cumplir un mes además todos las personas son diferentes el hsv no dura mucho en infectar células epiteliales en muchos casos a los 15 días de la infección ya puedes obtener anticuerpos hay gente que dura meses hay gente que dura menos de un mes porque tiene que ser igual para todos? _____________________ you are very bad, my diagnosis of hsv was just by hearing my symptoms without blood tests that was 20 days after the blood test was almost one month later all the people are different the hsv does not last long in infecting epithelial cells in many cases after 15 days of infection and you can get antibodies there are people who last for months there are people who last less than a month because it has to be the same for everyone?
