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 am taking the same medication, and I have noticed that on occasion, it does come back, not as horrible as when it first began happening, but like little patches, small areas. I'd just refill my prescription, take as directed, and it'd go away. I took my last pill today, and I have been talking vitamins every day. Did not know about elderberry, I've been taking tumeric, B12, echinacea, vitamin C, lysine, cranberry and anything else that helps promote immune health as well as skin.
