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..

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore

      Hey @Laurenhelena i think by your own admission you are letting fear get the better of you. Any flu symptoms (immune toxic shock) happen after the lesions, not before. Remember that most instances of sexual activity do not result in transmission of herpes. In the end it takes one exposure... but how many times has the person received oral sex from someone with HSV-1? or had sex with someone with HSV-2 even if they didn't know it was present? The UK has amongst the lowest incidence of genital HSV-2 in the world! There's a very good chance he has HSV-1. This means much lower transmission chances than you might think and even a chance it is near zero if you have an oral HSV-1 infection yourself!
