26/m TN

Recommended Posts

CourageousInDarkness

Hey whats goin on. 26/m from TN, just diagnosed about a week ago. My spirits are high and my faith is strong, but physically I am in pain. Seems to be getting better the farther into my medicine regimen I get. Anyone else in the Nashville area? It's comforting knowing there are so many others out there dealing with the same issues.

There are many people from the middle TN area who come here. Stick around and you may meet a few.

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

Good luck!

JB

Good ol East TN. Worked for about 2 months back in the summer in Crab Orchard up on the plateau. Not too far east, but definately east of Nashville. Where in east TN are you?

completelynotsure

I am from Nashville. 29/M. I am not completely sure if I have it or not.. my possible exposure to it was about 5 months ago - I took a blood test a few weeks ago, and it came back negative for both HSV1 and HSV2. However, I believe I might be going through a OB right now. I have a appointment tomorrow morning to have the doctor look at it AND get a Western Blot blood test to have it confirmed for sure or not.

I am am pretty bummed about this whole thing... I can't imagine bringing this up to someone I am interested in dating/marrying. I also am a virgin (have been waiting for marriage- which has been a hard enough feat to do..) so it has been quite a bit for me to handle, knowing that this really puts a damper on things.

At this point I am trying to stay positive. Which has really been kinda hard...

Corageous - It is awesome that you are so positive! It does get better, I only had one OB - I thought it was so painful even though it was just one bump. I just let it ride out, and I haven't had a breakout since - its been a year:)

      Ok. That's true. I would def. use protection but i was just thinking I should say something. I haven't made an decisions yet so nothing has happened. And also thanks for your response.

      Im thinking alot of one night stands are usually ppl you dont know. So i assume alot of ppl take the risk and have protected sex or even unprotected sex knowing they will never see thst person ever again. Especially if the transmission rate is low while using protection

      I mean by that same logic anybody would be crazy to have sex with us ever  lol ppl we end up in relationships with are at risk the most aren't they? Since that would mean regular sex...  I'm asking to see if anybody has ACTUALLY disclosed to a one night stand because I've read on other sites that ppl have done it but most are blogs like the one here https://www.emilydepasse.com/eldsoul/2018/3/25/ask-emily-dating-with-herpes where basically the writer is responding to a question vs me actually having the ability to talk to the person who actually has the experience

      http://www.eligiblemagazine.com/2013/03/14/lube-up-with-coconut-oil/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10813049 https://www.drgonzalezmd.com/avoid-secondary-herpes-infections-with-coconut-oil/   Coconut Oil has been shown to contain alot of antiviral properties. Herpes simply cannot survive in it, however I'm curious at how effective it is at preventing herpes transmission during sex, and if it'd make you near invincible. Herpes during sex is transmitted through skin to skin friction which coconut oil significant reduces.  Also if the virus were to leave the carrier's body it would get caught up in the layer of oil and killed. But how fast? Also, The lube drys out as you rub against each other, so you'd have to keep re-applying every so often.   Depending on the intensity of the sex, the coconut oil will get thoroughly rubbed into the persons skin layers, which'd mean the virus undoubtedly be on the persons skin and flesh. But, Theoretically, The virus should be dead/inactive due to being surrounded by the anti viral coconut oil, so it wouldn't even be able to crawl into their body to infect.   We need to get a bunch of lab mice or monkey, Infect 2 with herpes (Control and Test groups) , cover the test group in coconut oil, and let them have sex. If the test group shows less herpes transmission rates than that means that Coconut oil decreases STD TRANSMISSION!   Why hasn't this been done yet? Even if it didn't reduce transmission by 100%, 50% would lower std rates significantly.
