Hi people,

I'm Eff. I haven't been officially diagnosed yet as I've been out of the country and just got back tonight, but between the blisters becoming ulcers, the incredible burning feeling and the incapacity to use the bathroom without tears...

I don't see what else it could be. It's funny, I've been very promiscuous in my life, back when I was young and stupid... and somehow always managed to escape STDs save for a chlamydia once.

Now I met this guy, we've been together for 5 months, had the whole test talk. He'sa really sweet guy, he seemed shocked and saddened himself but has never had outbreaks save for the odd cold sore. I felt a little sore after sex one night... then more sore... then burning, then blistering, then ulcering, and now that I'm back home, I'll go to the doc's tomorrow. I can't sleep this hurts so much. I'm dreading the inevitable menstruations incoming...

Damn, this SUCKS ass. It's like carrying razor blades in my panties.

Usually it is just the first outbreak that can be rough like you are describing, then subsequent outbreaks are much milder, or do not occur at all for some people. It could have been the cold sores, which of course are herpes, and people don't know that and don't know that they can spread to others, especially genitally. Or he could have the genital version and just didn't know it.

Thank you both for your kind support. I tried being mad at my boyfriend, but it's petty. He genuinely didn't know, had never gotten symptoms - and he's a very sweet guy, not at all the player type.

The doctor did tell me it was the worst case of herpes she'd ever seen in her 20+ yr career, but that also goes with one of the worst cases of tonsillitis/mononucleosis (TBD by blood test along with HSV1/2) she'd ever seen. Apparently I might have been a carrier already, but I've been running a fever for 5 days straight now and my immune system is crashing, hence the crazy outbreak.


She also said it was too late to give me suppressants as this thing is already in full bloom. Short of ibuprofen and epsom salts... I'm gonna have to grin and bear it!

Thanks again,

I got meds late - a couple of weeks ago. My first ob. Let's hope all those who wrote you are right and the first one is the worst. Good luck.

      I do belive. It is going to be SADBE and Sqarex. I am on it and it is great.

      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?????????
