Hi everyone, I always had a safe sex using all the measure. But I thought of doing std's test and today I found that despite of always using measure I have a HSV 1/2 so I am so worried, frustrated and depressed. I am a male and still have not have breakout. but I am going to doctor soon. I am very worried about the pain and the infection if I will have breakout. Please do share your experiences. I have not told this to any one as I am feeling very shy and shame.

Welcome to the 'club'.

If you have hsv2 and have never had an outbreak, chances are you will never have one. Most people get this from someone who does not know and has never had an outbreak.

If you do happen to get one, you already have built up antibodies in your system to the virus, so the likelihood of it being severe are remote. Anyways, outbreaks on guys typically are not as bad as on women.

Did you know there is a support group in Houston? The one here really helped me out when I was first diagnosed. Just seeing other, normal, people with this was reassuring. Check out: www.houstonhelp.org

Come to the Chat Room, there you will meet many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!
