I'm 19 an i just found out i have herpes. I'm really scared. I have no idea who i got it from so i guess that says alot bout me. I'm so lost i don't even know what half my body parts are. The only thing i learned in health class is bout AIDS an HIV I've never even heard of herpes, until the doctor told me i had it. An to top It all off i told my Boyfriend i Just Found Out I Have Herpes an he gets pissed at me cuz i wouldn't give him a blow job.....

I'm 20 and i just found out about contracting herpes. I'm scared too but honestly the more you read (this website has a lot of good and true information) the less scarier it gets. the more u know makes it so much easier. and dont be down on yourself anyone can contract this disease. right now im very lost as well but i'm doing everything i can to change that. dont get down on yourself... how i am looking at it is that its giving me an excuse to improve my life. i am trying to not take anything for granted anymore and also its a good excuse to eat healthy and practice safer and healthier habits.

and that boyfriend does not sound like the kind of support you need right now. the people here are a lot of help, definitely take advantage. reaching out helps so much cuz everyone here understands what u are going thru. your life is not over.

Thank you, i have been reading up on a lot of the information this website offers, an I've been reading up on the positives eating healthier an stuff. but it is really hard not to think my life is over, i did this to myself i don't think i deserve to look at the positive.

and as for my boyfriend hes not so bad he just tends to be a bit of an ass when he doesn't get what he wants but he stayed with me after i told him that. idk maybe with time i mite share your out look but i think I'm still in shock over this.

      Hi everyone  I have Ghsv1. 3 months I receive frequent outbreaks. There are no lesion redness, burning and itching as just a rash. I know that herpes trigger opportunistic infections. How do I know this mushroom or that herpes ?  Do you have frequent outbreaks is living Ghsv1? I feel alone

      I have been positive for about 8 months and I’ve generally been open to friends and family about my status. I’ve tried a brief stint with dating other H+ folks from Postive Singles and it hasn’t really worked out.  There’s this guy who works security at my gym and he’s been chatting me up a lot recently. I like him and I haven’t made any moves but I get the vibe he’s getting ready to ask me out. It sucks because he’s obviously interested and I would love to go out on a date with him.  I’ve never had to disclose to a new person before and I’m really really really dreading this. I’m dreading it to the point where Im wondering if I should turn him down if he does ask me. I hate this. You know I could handle the symptoms of herpes, the only thing that sucks about this thing is that it’s contagious. I have zero problem taking drugs everyday, but valtrex is so fucking inadequate with providing me any reassurance of reducing transmission.  I’m so frustrated. Just give me some better fucking drugs so I can feel confident again.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.
