Hi every one. Michelle here. I was just diagnosed last month with herpes-2. I had been tested in summer 2010 and was clean. I broke up with my ex and had one time sex (with a good guy friend, and i was drunk so i don't remember anything). So i either got it from him or idk. I feel so horrible about myself and i feel SO SO alone. I am with the new boyfriend, and i told him and he said to me i'm not scaring him away that easy. So that helps, altho i sometimes wonder if he forgot i told him, but something big like that, is hard to forget.

Anyways, i am glad i found this place to talk to some people to make myself not feel so alone

Hello I guess we are all here looking for support in one way or another from ppl who actually understand. You are a lucky girl, I've had ppl say there is nothing I can do to turn them away from me........... revealing my condition proved who were my real friends...........sadly they were few.....the others ran for the hills. Im happy for you and ur relationship. :)

      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.
