This is still very new and hard for me to admit, but maybe the more i talk about it the easier it will become.

I visited my doctor yesterday because i thought i had tearing from intercourse and was scared i could have gotten something else. The doctor soon informed me that I had in fact been infected with herpes. At this point im still waiting on the test result for what strain i have but either way I know this will be life changing.

Trying to get past the feeling of being completely dirty, and cutting down the stigma i once bought into about this virus is a lot harder then i ever thought it would be. its only been a day an i feel emotionally drained. But whats harder then admitting it to myself that i messed up, is telling the guy i'm sleeping with about it. I have no idea how he will react or even what to say.

crossing my fingers that everything will work out!

Visual diagnosis is the most inaccurate test available. Did he also do a swab test? Or a blood test? If you just acquired the virus your blood test may come back negative. Those tests look for antibodies in your blood to the virus and it can take your immune system 3 - 4 months to create them.

Even if you have herpes it does not have to be life changing. Although many people have told me that getting herpes has changed their lives for the better. They eat healthier and are more selective in whom they date. You can live a normal life, I know I have.

And if you do have it, it more than likely came from this guy. So you would be doing him a favor by telling him.

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

Good luck!

      I wish you luck my friend! It’d be nice to find something! The only two things I’ve ever tested positive for during this whole mess was a fungal infection in the groin creases, found by biopsy, and the nerve biopsy found nerve damage. I just hate thinking I’m unluncky enough to have HSV1 which is suppose to be the most tame where supposedly people have few if any problems with it, and mine have been endless! Do you have extremely sweaty scrotum and inner thighs when you wake up and periodically throughout the day? That’s been driving me nuts!

      Sorry to bombard your post hun but I’ve got a cut too on my vagina (labia) I shaved the night previous and the next day I had an itch so I itched with but I didn’t put my hand down their I used my knickers and all of a sudden I felt an irratation so I went to go have a look and I found this, it doesn’t hurt when touched and doesn’t hurt when I pee I can sit around and stuff, is this the same thing as yours? I’m going insane right now I’ve got health anxiety I want to cry thinking I have herpes 1st pic is what it was like when I looked first  2nd pic is when I got out the shower  3rd pic is now  and 4th pic is when I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it ( it never hurt either)  After shower pic

      That is exactly what mine look like (on one side of labia anyway) and the rest are kind of dark red flat pimple bumps
