hello,

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.....

hey,

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.

Thanks;

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.

      There’s new treatment available for cmv and shingles but nothing yet for hsv. It’s like a slap in the face!

      Any ladies out there suffered with this? There seems to be little information about it on the net. Thanks in advance.

      Rejection will be there during your whole life. But not because of herpes, also because of how you are, at work, at your private life. It's just a part of life! Just have in mind that if people reject you because of stupid little things like herpes, they are not even worth continuing as a part of your life.  I think the best way of fighting the stigma is to be 100% convinced that there is NO NEED to feel ashamed, bad, disgusting because of herpes. I one day understood some very important thing: I did NOTHING differently than my friends who don't have herpes. I had sex (they did), sometimes with protection (they did), sometimes without (they did). I had ONS (they did), I had long term relationships (they did), I received wonderful and less wonderful oral sex, haha (they did). The only difference is that I got genital herpes from someone who didn't even know. So why exactly should I feel disgusting or bad?  And also: Know the facts. That is the safest way to destroy stigma in my opinion. If someone tells you: "Yuck! Herpes is disgusting!" you can answer: "I don't think that 80 % of the world population are disgusting because they have a virus in their bodies."  I also recommend this video from "Laureen". She has really great videos about herpes!

      Thanks for the comments. Looks like the only think that might have a shot at helping us in the future is the drug Pritlevir then.

      @PeaceNeeded no there is zero relationship between penile spines and HSV-2, no such variant is possible.
