got the news today

Im recovering from plastic surgery and was just treated to the news that the sore my gyno noticed on my pre surgery visit tested positive--she's making me come in for full results--dont know if its 1 or 2. So now that i've got these spectacular tits ( I got a breast lift)- i get to tell dudes that i have the big H.

Complicating this is the fact that Im seeing two guys. Have slept with both--one was a serious boyfriend over the summer who has come to realize he thinks im the one for him (im not so sure but he was a great boyfriend and I want to remain friends--he wanted kids, I didnt), the other is this super sweet guy I saw a real future with and was just waiting to have an "exclusivity" talk with. In between the summer break up and meeting this new guy I had a bit of a wild phase and went out with a swinger-we went to sex parties and had sex with lots of ppl (ALWAYS WITH CONDOMS). So I dont think I got it from either of my current partners.

Im pretty devastated. I played with fire and got burned and now that Ive calmed down and found someone great I get this.

Im shut in on bedrest--so Im even more depressed.

Does anyone here not experience frequent outbreaks? The one I had just seemed like a small rash on one side of my labia and it went away after a few days. I feel like ive had this before--maybe a few years ago--and nothing until now. Could I have had it all along? Is there a way to tell from the tests if i was only recently infected?

Find out what type it is. If you get a swab test on an active outbreak and it is positive but, at the same time, you get a negative result on a blood test, that usually indicates a new infection of recent origin. You need to get a swab test on the outbreak and a blood test now and again in about 3-4 months.

      I think Dr. Jerome is just being cautious. I've followed what he's done and have 100% confidence in him. Predicting the exact number of years to a cure would be hard, but their last article about HSV makes me think it can't be too far off.

      Did you ever find out if this was herpes or not?

      @GotMeAtLast I doubt the doctor actually told you that, that doesn’t explain why you kept coming here looking for validation.  By your own admission, you have had oral HSV-1 for years. Further you have never swabbed positive from your genital region. Everyone is allowed to form their own conclusions on the basis of that truth. If you wish to conclude you have genital herpes, that’s OK. If I want to conclude you don’t, that’s OK.

      It's been five months since possible exposure and keep having symptoms. I keep experiencing thigh and pelvic pain and thick discharge. Also get shooting pains vaginally and on my butt. I just saw a small white bump inside my labia and next to it is a small open sore. They don't hurt when touched but the rest of my vagina hurts when touched or sitting. Does any of this sound like anyone's ob? I got tested in October but I'm scared I tested too early and now having trouble getting a doctor to retest me
