Hello everyone! Right now I am a little unsure of what to do...currently I am living in Paris France and a few days ago I noticed 3 bumps on my labia, burning while peeing, and it was swollen. I was hoping they would go away but they didn't so I went to the doctor Friday night. He didn't even look at it and gave me medication for something else. That night I couldn't sleep because I was in so much pain so I decided to go to the hospital the next day. This doctor looked at it and said it was herpes but didn't do any tests. I have been taking the medication he prescribed but couldn't ask very many questions due to the language barrier.

The guy I have been seeing picked me up and I told him the news. We have been having sex for about a month now and if herpes is what I have, I think it might be from him because he is the only one I have been with since May when I came out. Before I came to France I went to the gynecologist for an annual check up and test tests all came back clear. I have only had sex with 2 other guys in my life ,who were my boyfriends each for about 1 year. It had been a year and a half since I had sex until I started having sex with the guy I am seeing now. He said that he doesn't have it...or at least he didn't know he had it. It really is an awkward thing to bring up anyway...I don't want him to feel like I am blaming him either however I know he has had more partners than myself.

When I got home from the hospital my period started...just to top off the day ;) any advice on if you can even wear a tampon or use a pad? how do you keep it dry with the blood?

Hi there,

Sounds like you're coping well with the news, that's awesome! and sounds like your boyfriend is being pretty supportive. It does sound like he is the most likely person to have given it to you, but that's not 100%. Basically all you can do is tell him that he might have given it to you, but you're not blaming him and you're not angry, he should just be aware of it, that's all.

I use a Divacup, which is a silicon menstrual cup that catches the blood. I take it out and empty/rinse it a few times a day, really comfortable and practical. Personally, I would choose tampons over pads, as pads harbor bacteria and will keep the area moist, which we don't want during an OB! As long as tampons are not too painful (some women have sores internally, and I imagine putting a tampon in does not feel very good), if this is the case, I would use a pad and just change it as often as you can.

Hope this helps!

      @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.
