Question for people with herpes


Recommended Posts

What made you want to go test? was it the visible sores? or other symptoms such as pain in the gential area?

Also, to those who have herpes and had the symptoms of pain or burning feeling in the genital area and/or leg, buttock area..

Can you describe "pain" when you say it as a symptom?

Im feeling a sensation in my left testicle, but its not 'pain'...

and if most of the people who do in fact have HSV-1 or -2 are asymptomatic, what would drive them to get tested for herpes?

well about me

well I'm 27 and got infected by boyfriend what made me want to get testes was I was having pain and discharge and sores that I didnt really notice I also had a fever for two days. I ddint feel normal I felt something was wrong plus it always hurt during the first few time me and my man had sex. I ahd a booklet that had info on all the different deases and I ahd all the symptoms of herpies but I thought it was something esle. so I went to the doctor hopin it was a bladder infection and turned out I ahd two BV and herpies BV is treatable with creams and gose away herpes is treatable but will never fully goaway. At least thats how I feel.

hi, mccool.

early september 2003, i found a humongous sore in my vaginal area. at the time, i was friends with a nurse; i showed it to her, and she said that it looked like herpes. she gave me an ointment and told me to use it every time i went to the bathroom. i remember using it extensively.

as it was labor day weekend, i had to wait a few days to go to the clinic. when i went, the nurse practitioner tested me through a culture, which came back negative. she wasn't certain if the test was negative because i was truly negative or because i had used the cream.

after that any time i had a sore, i ran to the doctor. i did enough research to know that there wasn't any other std that it could be. i also requested frequent std testing to make certain i knew if i had anything or not.

good luck!

I got an IM from someone who claimed I gave it to him... which was funny because he couldn't tell me how I knew him.. he kept giving me some BS about meeting him on a website, but I wasn't a member of that site anymore and hadn't been in close to a year... and then he made some story up about how we had been together recently... which again wasn't true because the only person I had been with was my boyfriend... and he hit me on the yahoo acct that was for people in my real life... ie.. family and friends I didn't meet on the net... so I was able to determine it was my most recent ex... and so I went and got tested... and I was positive... I had been tested before that ex and he was the only one I had been with in the year or so since I had been tested... so.... it was lame... but it is what it is....

      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

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.
