I am new here.. and just received the wonderful glorious news I am HSV 1 & 2 positive. I have never had an out break that I am aware of. Go to the dr regularly, pap smears regulary.. and it takes a man.. who I had been seeing for 3 months to tell me he got a sore from me???? I immediately began calling the few men I was with before to make sure they were okay, and thank goodness, at least for the moment, they are. I have advised them to get tested to be sure they are okay and I didn't give them anything.

I feel like my life is over.. I wasn't feeling good this morning but was going to head into work until i "got the call"

I have been reading and reading.. and I am just totally freaked out..

welcome to the board. I am sorry that you have HSv 1 and 2 both. how did you get diagnosed if you never had a outbreak? The good news here if there such a thing is that sense you have not had a outbreak you might not ever get one.

your life not over you are the same person you were before this happened to you. that has not changed.

as for you giving it to that guy not so quick. it possible he already had the herpies and did not know it when he meet you. that happens all the time. So dont blame yourself it impossible here to know who infected who

Thank you so much for the support. I feel dirty now.. and I know that I shouldn't, but still... How did I get diagnosed? Well.. the bf I discussed sent me a text message and said he had a sore on his penis and did he have anything to worry about. His first assumption was that it was an STD and I gave it to him. I went to my dr and asked to have blood work done for my own sanity. Which, now.. I don't know if I had it before him, or am just now positive. I know I shouldn't be so freaked but.. it just really makes me feel dirty..

      Kelly bean yes I had an ulcer in my mouth. I know it' unusual but as soon as he had told me that I got it swabbed and it came back positive. Then I had a blood test and that came back positive as well.   Anon222 Thank you it's just incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Especially being such a new thing to me.  It will change things though. I will never rest easy. I will always be worried about getting another one come up, I will have to pay expenses for preventative measures. I will have to tell everyone that wants to kiss me (not that I go around just kissing people but as this is life long never know how many people that may be) so it will be changing a lotg for me. I will never feel comfortable just kissing someone anymore. I will always be worried about passing it onto them. It changes my whole life. I will never be able to kiss a new born baby (If I ever have another child)  I will not be able to do so many things without stress and worry for the rest of my life:(

      Hey there Chicken, I agree with what helpme said. Really no one cares about OHSV-1. Not to diminish your feelings but I just want you to know that it’s going to be okay. You honestly don’t have to worry about this at all. As he also said you are now in the MAJORITY of people. Please just go on living your normal life this should not change anything at all! Good luck!

      I know blood test doesn't tell location. I know i have it orally since i had it as a child but i dont have any breakouts at all, the last breakout i remember was inside my lips when i was a kid. Like me my friends and my gf we are all asymptomatic orally. im just worried if the above mention symptoms say i have ghsv1?  and about disclosure im happy to tell. im not scared of it im just worried if i got it in the genitals, although all my doctors say im fine.

      I don’t understand this post. You seem highly concerned of having herpes for someone who already tested positive for herpes. Your girlfriend has tested positive for herpes. What more is there to freak out about? Blood tests do not tell you location, are you worried if you break up how you will handle disclosure To someone else? That’s where I’m getting confused.
