This is all new to me

Mixed feelings about what is going on. Done a lot of research on the internet and gained more knowledge over what is now a part of my life. How will this impact my relationships in the future and how hard is it going to be to find a partner in life that is also positive for HSV. Lived 36 years of my life before I was exposed to HSV...little confused at the moment.

In it for life

Hello Looking,

Sorry to hear about your new diagnosis.

I've had hsv2 since I was 21 y/o. I'm now 47. Life goes on!

I've actually had a very happy healthy normal life. None of the men I've been in relationships with have even cared that I had "the gift". And all of them were negative (or so I think... but soooo many people have this and dont know... it's very likely that some of them may have already had it)

I was married for 11 years, never used condoms and suppressive therapy wasnt available back then, and he never got it.

There are a lot of men out there who will love you for you and the hsv will not be an issue.

There are a few men that may not feel that way, but I've concluded that these are the same men who would bail on us during any difficult time, even if we didn't have hsv.

Your life is not over! And future relationships are likely to be even better when you do meet a special man that doesn't care about it. It does create a special bond.

This is a wonderful website filled with lots of supportive understanding people. You might like to read thru some posts on different forums and I think you'll be inspired and informed.

Take good care of yourself and keep your chin up! :)

Thank you, In it for life, I couldn't have said it any better myself. Looking, I feel the same way that you do at times, believe me. I'm 33 and was diagnosed two months ago, a total shock since I have never had any symptoms (and neither did any of my partners, or so I thought). I know how devastating the news can be. You are not alone. Sometimes I read the success stories on this site, and they make me feel better. Hope you feel better soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus   Thank you for your reply, we live in north America, she did the test here in Canada, I will attach a copy of the test below. I understand your point of view but its hard for me to cope with this. I never thought this would happen to me which I m sure most people feel the same.  yes I did took vows for better or worst but I feel those vows are for whatever happens after marriage not because of something happened in the past.  i feel like this is something that is going to remind me of her past for the rest of my life. its not easy for me to look past that.

      It was properly typed. Definitely HSV-2. No, he doesn’t get oral cold sores. So should I expect this to be another OB coming? I’ve never had an outbreak in my life and have been with my husband for 8 years with no problem! So I hope this isn’t going to keep occurring

      Hey @ayekayelle I am afraid to say this is pretty typical of the first few months, a fairly high chance of rolling outbreaks. Maybe the suppressive therapy will be of assistance for a while at least. By the way just to add, was you culture properly typed? Or just assumed to be HSV-2 given location? Its 50/50 seemingly as to whether cultures are typed. Does your husband get oral cold sores?

      I just had my first OB during the first week of April, and was diagnosed with HSV2 on April 12th. I just finished my 10 day cycle of acyclovir yesterday. Today I've been feeling uncomfortable. No burning or pins and needles feelings, just more so uncomfortable and not right down there. Is it possible to be getting another OB this soon, or am I just being paranoid? I'm starting suppressive therapy as soon as I receive my medication. Blah...

      Doesn't sound like HSV. You can get tested in 12 wks to be sure. Get rest
