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.

      Kelly bean yes I had an ulcer in my mouth. I know it' unusual but as soon as he had told me that I got it swabbed and it came back positive. Then I had a blood test and that came back positive as well.   Anon222 Thank you it's just incredibly difficult thing to deal with. Especially being such a new thing to me.  It will change things though. I will never rest easy. I will always be worried about getting another one come up, I will have to pay expenses for preventative measures. I will have to tell everyone that wants to kiss me (not that I go around just kissing people but as this is life long never know how many people that may be) so it will be changing a lotg for me. I will never feel comfortable just kissing someone anymore. I will always be worried about passing it onto them. It changes my whole life. I will never be able to kiss a new born baby (If I ever have another child)  I will not be able to do so many things without stress and worry for the rest of my life:(

      Hey there Chicken, I agree with what helpme said. Really no one cares about OHSV-1. Not to diminish your feelings but I just want you to know that it’s going to be okay. You honestly don’t have to worry about this at all. As he also said you are now in the MAJORITY of people. Please just go on living your normal life this should not change anything at all! Good luck!

      I know blood test doesn't tell location. I know i have it orally since i had it as a child but i dont have any breakouts at all, the last breakout i remember was inside my lips when i was a kid. Like me my friends and my gf we are all asymptomatic orally. im just worried if the above mention symptoms say i have ghsv1?  and about disclosure im happy to tell. im not scared of it im just worried if i got it in the genitals, although all my doctors say im fine.

      I don’t understand this post. You seem highly concerned of having herpes for someone who already tested positive for herpes. Your girlfriend has tested positive for herpes. What more is there to freak out about? Blood tests do not tell you location, are you worried if you break up how you will handle disclosure To someone else? That’s where I’m getting confused.
