Waiting for official diagnosis but pretty sure that its herpes =/

Recommended Posts


HEy everyone, Im glad I found this site. Although the DOctor hasnt officially diagnosed it, Im pretty sure its herpes. I have a few bumps and a sore and itches like hell. DOctor said she isnt sure because of the location? I go in next week and i guess she will let me know for sure. But Im pretty sure thats what it is because I was exposed to it last year. But weird I didnt have an outbreak until now. Ive come to accept it and well i guess i knew it. I cried and was so scared to tell my bf. However, he is very supportive and has accepted the risk. HE told me it doesn't change how he feels about me and he still loves me. I also talked to my best friend and she is very supportive and said she will not look at me any different and that it could be worse. Im not dying from it. Having their support have really helped me and they refuse to let me get depressed about it. Especially my boyfriend he refuses to let me beat myself over it. So if you can find that one person a friend or family member who you can trust and would be supportive helps tremendously.

Hi. I hope it's not but if it is I am happy that your boyfriend supports you. Comfort is so needed when we experience situations like this.

      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.
