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..

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????

      Hey Folks. I have been taking Acyclovir 400MG 3 times a day orally since 1/17. It seems to have helped the burning, but the pain stills comes and goes. Should I continue to take the antivirals? Is it normal for a burning pain to last this long? I think I may continue to take the prescription until I am out of pills, but I am concerned that I am still in pain.
