Hi!

Hello all,

Last week my doctor told me she felt I had herpes, after I went in for what seemed like a yeast infection & just irritated skin (razor burn). She sent in labs/blood tests, and I should have the answers this week sometime. She prescribed antivirals, and now I'm just waiting for confirmation of this. Unfortunately, in my gut, I feel that she's right. I'm struggling with of the negative emotions right now. I *know* that this is not my fault, that it's manageable, etc. But feeling that way is easier said than done. A friend pointed me this way, so here I am :)

Hi!

The exact same thing happened to me. I shaved down there regularly so I thought I was dealing with razor bumps. I hope everything turns out negative, but the important thing to know is that you WILL be OK! :-) Remember, it could be a lot worse.

Oh lordy, just had a not so great conversation with the bf. I've had a hard time with this. He thinks I'm going "a bit nuts" over this, and shouldn't worry about it until I get the confirmation of the doctor, because it "could be something else." I have the blisters. The inflammation. The flu-like symptoms. I can't imagine what else it would be. I feel like I should be realistic, and not hold out all this hope that it could be some crazy disease from the tropics or the like. Sex is the last thing on my mind, and he wants it to be business as usual once the outbreak clears. I just have so much anxiety in that regard that I'm not sure when I'm going to be ready again. He asks me if I'm okay, and then when I express that no, I'm not, we end up having this long discussion about him not being supportive and me being overly dramatic. We're still a new couple, haven't been dating all that long. If he is not going to be in my corner, I don't want him around at all. I just need someone to hold my hand a little bit, and let me be pissed off and upset so that I can move on to being okay.

      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?????????
