Hello :)

Recommended Posts


Well, I have not had it confirmed with my doctor yet, but I am 99% sure that I have HSV2. I was dating a guy a couple of months ago that was asymptomatic and he thought he was negative. He finally had a terrible first outbreak, and we learned otherwise. I tested negative at that time... I am fairly sure I'm positive now.

I am not bitter or angry about it, but I know I cannot tell friends and family. So, here I am for support! :hello:

Don't assume that you have herpes if you have been with someone who has it. I have had a lot of sex with non-h women and never passed it along. I know people who were married decades and their spouse never got it.

Was he taking antivirals after he found out? Antivirals reduces the risk significantly. Here is a great article on transmission rates. Read it and you will feel better.


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

Good luck!

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
