I just found this site and have had hsv2 for about 18 years, I do have 3 children as well. So there you go, I have never told anyone I have herpes. only this year started taking medicine, yep, I am a loner, married but don't speak usually about myself or my problems. Husband doesn't even know, imagine that, as far as I know he has never been infected.

I'm glad you found this forum.

I'm a mod here so a part of my "job" is to make people feel welcome here and give support and info when I can.Another part is to be open and non-judgmental.I really can't help but feel angry and upset with you though for keeping this from your husband.

skigirl,this is very,VERY important that you tell him and tell him to be tested and educate him about this disease.Yes,it IS a disease and he has a right to know as he may become infected with it.

I know it may be hard to tell him,but you really need to.I urge you to sit down and have a talk with your husband and fill him in on your situation.

I wonder how long you have been married to him and if you knew about your herpes befor you married him.

Good luck!!

I've been married for 21 years

He's never mentioned it and neither did I. 18 years is a long time and he's never had a sore. I'd know, we are together quite often. Not sure how I got it but suffice it to say he must be the carrier as he's never had a sore once.

He is not easy to talk to and prob gave it to me and doesn't ever want to talk about it. I just have never felt the need to bring it up. I just deal with it and go on. But should one of us pass on, then yeah, it'd be a blessing to know so the other can plan the rest of their life accordingly.

OK, I guess we need to talk about it. Neither of us would be angry I'm sure, it's just something that happened. We plan on being together forever as far as I am concerned, he cries when he thinks I might leave him, he truly loves me.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!

      Hi @Anxious 1234 Did you get diagnosis for this?

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti
