I am a 30 yr old man who resides in Orlando Florida. I had no symptoms but took a test anyways. As soon as the test came positive I started feeling symptoms. Maybe it was all mental but now it's just getting worse and worse. I feel tingly and slight pain in my anal and genital area. I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow with my local physician so I hope she prescribes me some meds. I have nobody I can trust to tell except for my brother but i do not want to tell him yet. Still figuring out how I am going to do that. Long story short, I would love to talk with someone about this and hopefully boost my morale as I don't know how I am going to cope with this. Feel free to contact me.

Hello,

I am so sorry you are going through this. What made you decide to be tested? When was your last sexual encounter? I know you are scared and anxious. The mind can play tricks on us at times too. I understand where you are and may not be the best person to tell you this, but....we will be ok...no matter what.

I decided to be tested for piece of mind. Scared, anxious, and I can't deal with this physically and emotionally. I hope I will make it through this.

So your test result was positive and now you feel symptoms? Do you know your actual numbers?

You're doing the right thing by being seen right away. What type of symptoms are you feeling? When did you last have sex?

Last had sex about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks ago. I feel discomfort in my groin area, anus, and thighs. Tingling sensation and just noticed my first blister in my ass. I'm done for. This sucks.. What about you? Oh, and I appreciate you talking with me. Seems like all I'm doing is hitting refresh, awaiting your messages.

I know it's tough. I have had symptoms for months though perhaps not classic symptoms so have had quite an ordeal. Being seen early is very good as they can give you meds while you await your swab results. I know it sucks. The anger, anxiety and depression can be a killer but you will be ok. I read many posts of people who have been through the same thing and, though it takes awhile, they work through it. I am assuming your test was an HSV2 igg test.

That is the standard test. I think it's pretty relaible. I know it is consuming your thoughts right now. Are you able to take a couple days off while you get your treatment started? I really think it's best to go to work and do all your normal activities as soon as possible. I have had alot of trouble with that myself but am pushing myself to do it. Freaking out is normal. Don't be sorry. I have been there and still am occasionally. Try to eat and rest if you can. Your body will be stronger and better able to fight.

yeah she will more than likely prescribe you meds asap. I understand what you are going through. Sometimes your mind makes things worse. OB's do not last forever, they may come and go but you will learn to live with it, eventually you will get used to it and forget about except when the OB's come around. If you did not have any symptoms then why did you decide to get a test, did you suspect the girl to have something? good thing you got checked. Good luck to you. you will be fine.

Yes, I was with a girl and wanted to be sure. I went to my doc today and she said I was not having an outbreak but have had it for a while. She said since I'm healthy, dont drink/smoke, work out, eat right, vitamins etc that I may never get an ob. It's just crazy bc yesterday I couldnt get outta bed(depression?) and today after the dr i went shopping, cooked, cleaned and did normal things. So weird. Thoughts?

      @cas9 actually I think it’s you who doesn’t understand proof, proof by nature is subjective, so what is proof to me might not be proof to you... I have seen many cases where people have nothing to gain sharing their stories about herpes, and healing themselves, now if you continually search for this you’ll find it in comment threads or perhaps blogs.... perhaps they are lying? Well...Maybe some, but to think everyone who has claimed to heal themselves of herpes is a liar is simply a belief...  if you wanna believe that, go ahead, but after careful  analysis of many stories and researching the virus myself I am convinced the body can rid itself of herpes, what comes in, can come out, it just takes time and effort... But I like to keep it simple, God can heal anything so at this point you guys are just speaking nonsense

      So my 20 year old daughter and I just found out she has genital herpes.  She is away at college and dealing with it on her own.  I am trying to be as supportive as I can by reading everything I can find from reputable sites.  She is staying busy this week with as she is involved with her schools freshman orientation for the new class coming in.  She was told by an urgent care doctor that she had it Visually, they did a blood test and called her to confirm it is herpes.  I told her to ask what type and she was told they don’t really type anymore because there is to much gray area but that it is a new infection. From what I have read that seems odd and she should find out what type.  I told her to inform anyone she may have had sex with in the last 6 months, she said she told the guy and he was an ass about it which of course makes the emotional side worse.  She is emotionally a wreck about it and I am trying to help her understand it’s not the end of the world.  Of course being 20 she feels she will not have the chance to meet anyone who would want to date her now. Any advice would be great....she is still in the middle of her first outbreak but I think the antiviral has been helping since she went to the doc as soon as she thought something wasn’t right.  I just want to help her as best I can!

      Sorry for the long post. Just giving some backstory..... Hello. I'm new to this site. I was told I had HSV2 about 5 years ago. I had no clue because I never had any symptoms. I was just getting some blood work done while pregnant after switching to a new ob/gyn and this was discovered. Pregnancy was ended for personal reasons. Still afterwards never had any outbreaks or symptoms or anything. Fast forward to June I started feeling irritated down there. I was dealing with a lot of stress at this time. I ended up taking a pic of what it looked like down there so I could see what was going on. I only saw 1 spot. In the pic you will see the spot on top. It always just looked like a crater or something. It never blistered up or popped or crusted up. I knew I had the virus so I started researching outbreaks and pics and things. I wasnt sure if this was an out break or not because most of what I was dealing with didnt match up. I never felt sick. It didn't hurt to sit or wear panties. I didnt have any tingling or itching or burning sensation. I just felt irritated. I know every case is different though. So then I researched some home remedies and I ended up buying lysine 1000 mg to take and also used tea tree oil and acv diluted w/ water. Once I started messing with it, it started burning when urine got on the spot. And I think I didn't dilute the acv enough. I took 2 lysine pills a day until I wasnt feeling anything down there. So after a few days this healed up and everything was fine again but the spot never really went away. Things have been settled down and no stress since then. All of a sudden yesterday morning I started feeling that same irritation again. This morning I felt around down there and felt nothing so I took a pic again and the thing on bottom is what I found. I put some acv and  tea tree oil on it again.  And same as last time...ever since I touched it, it's been hurting just a tad and it looks exactly the same. I'm not sure if this is a outbreak or not but I'm pretty sure it is. I'm just not experiencing most of the symptoms I read about. Can someone give me their opinion please? Thank you.
