Recommended Posts

I recently bought a new toy cleaned it very well and used it. and that same weekend i slept with a guy. i went to the er freaking out cause i had 4 little bumps show up that scared me he said they looked like herpes and he gave me medication. I was not tested for it. Once they went away I used the toy again and now they are back again...Im not sure what to really think is going on with my body now, or what to do.

I'd wait about 2 or 3 months and then go and get a blood test to check for anti-bodies, or get the sores swabbed if you get more. It is possibly an allergic reaction or it could be herpes...only a test will be able to tell you that.

I know I have got thrush from certain toys...a particular type of silicon doesn't agree with me...so now I have found that I feel more comfortable using glass toys. I have herpes and often latex, silicon anything different in that area can cause a flare up. Glass it just easier to clean and far less likely to harbour germies.

I'd also say don't use that particular toy...clearly it is not your friend!

im hoping its just an allergic reaction but dont we all. Im tryin to go in and get them swabbed but there are never any appointments open for when i need to go. they never did a blood test either so maybe if they are gone by my appointment date they can do a blood test. and yeah i dont think that toy is my friend either.

      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.
