Mad About Herpes

Recommended Posts


So I just got diagnosed with herpes this past week and am going through my first outbreak. I will find out on Tuesday which type but I'm certain it's 2.

I'm really mad about herpes and not only because I just got diagnosed. It seems like there's not enough real, true and proven facts about herpes! It's very frustrating. It's hard to believe you can contract something when your partner doesn't even show symptoms or even know you have it because you don't show symptoms!

More research needs done and a cure needs found! :(

I agree that there needs to be more research done about this skin condition. I was very upset when I first got diagnosed and that was only 1 month ago. I have been with my bf for 2 years now and I did not get h from him. I did not know that I had this otherwise I would have told him. I had an ob last month but i was not sure what it was. I have type 2 genital and my bf got tested and he has type 1 oral. Who would have thought that? It's okay to be mad, angry and everyother emotion you could possible think of. Just know that you are not the only one and with time it get's better. Talk about what your going through. Everyone on here helped me a great deal and I thank them!

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
