Hello all.

this is my story.

I had a risky sexual intercouse about 6 months ago, that led me to several tests for STD (Iincluding 2 tests for hsv2, negative) and to a radical change in lifestyle.

I met a person who has clearly become the love of my life.

I slowly put behind my past, tried to fix the mistakes i made and did everything i could to make sure i wouldn't be hurting my partner if we'd get intimate.

I was diagnosed with a light case of prostatitis a couple of months after my accident, and given antibiotics which didn't clear the problem, since it would come back regularly.

never had any typical HSV symptoms, however, i went and got 2 herpesSelect tests, both came back negative(at week 5 and week 12), along with the other STD tests, besides Trichomonas, which i got treated for.

After getting intimate with my partner,and after previous talks about my sexual habits/STD experiences, i kind of developed the fear of being infected with HSV2, and that my prostatitis is somehow related to this.

I spend a lot of time out for work, and end up surfing the web and reading a lot about this, and it seems like it could be true.

Everybody i confide with about my fears keep on reassuring me i am being paranoid, but i can't stop thinking about the chance of hurting my other half.

Also, even though i know i am going back for another test as soon as possible and to discuss this issue with my urologist again, i am terribly scared of the consequences if i am positive.

I am terrified of the idea of being left alone.

This is the first reltionship i feel it's the right one.

I have been through so many and there has never been this level of understanding and complicity, but i don't know if my partner would be able to accept this, if it happened.

I am looking for some reassurance, or personal experiences, or something to let me get these bad thoughts out of my mind.

They are slowly killing me and i can't help but think about the extreme consequences of a mistake i made a long time ago, that i thought i fixed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Thats great that you changed your lifestyle!! I think we ALL need to do that.I don't mean just people with herpes but everyone.

If you got the test and it came back negative and you haven't had any herpes symptoms then you most likely do not have it.If your really that worried then you can have the bloodtest again and 3 months (I think).

If it turns out that you do have herpes it will suck at times.You will still be able to find love though.

You need to hold it together. I know how stressful it can be, having done things in the past that terrified me the next morning. Your mind runs away with you. Chances are that you are fine. If you do have something you will deal with it and your partner will have choices to make. Follow your doctor's advice about when to retest and try to focus on staying healthy. Walking everyday, attending church services and taking yoga classes have helped me. Find something that works for you. Maintaining a positive state of mind requires action.

      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      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!
