Hi Laura and welcome.... you have come to the right place for information and education. The fact sheets there are on the right are a great way to wrap your head around how this virus works.

I know that it's baffling in the beginning trying to work out how you got the virus but some of us may never know, since herpes really is a bit sneaky and it doesn't play by the rules.

Have a read of this fact sheet (taken from the right there) that explains that it cannot be caught from toilet seats, towels etc. It may help to make things a bit clearer for you.....

      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.
