Thank You!

My girlfriend of 5 months recently had an vaginal infection that had her doctor predicting HSV-2 90% for sure. The test are still in process. I have never had any symptoms for cold sores or genital. Her infection is really painful and slow to heal. We are both educated middle age people. The wait is on - up to 2 weeks.

Anyway, I am thankful I found this site. The moderators are very concise explaining that this is a skin virus like chicken pox and others that we have all had. The apparent social sigma and future relationships and fear of outbreaks are the hard part right now.

Because it's not clear where this came from, I will probably have to go back to 3 former partners to declare this, if it's positive. God, that will suck...

I really love this woman and pray, regardless of the results, that we have a strong enough bond to get past this.

It's helpful to read and share. Hang in everyone.

Don't assume that if she has it you have it too. It really isn't that easy to spread especially from a girl to a guy. Here is a link to a great article on transmission rates. As you can see it isn't easy to spread:


Come to the "Chat Room", there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

      Who knows if I have had further testing since whatever post I made however long ago. Oh that's right, I know, and you don't, you ignorant fuck.

      I’m also in the same boat. The skin below my pelvic glands is red and rash-like or little red bumps show up for a day or two. Constant itching down there and on my scrotum. The entrance to my anus is itchy all day. Every doctor that has looked at it has seen nothing to be concerned about. Tingling on my lip, tingling in my left arm and hand, tingling in left foot. Tingling in my left thigh, full pain in head of penis. Girl I was seeing also has itchiness in her vag and the lip tingles. I get little cuts on my penis for no reason. Never been swabbed or taken theWestern Blot. So far, after 5 months since suspected contact, I’m IGG negative. this all happened soon after having sex multiple time with someone.

      This is coming very soon.  The chat we had was great but crashed the site each time.  We've researched lots of options and hopefully we are close. Thanks for your patience! Shenda

      Hi guys, I have been making myself crazy googling. So i decided to ask people who know. My 28 year old daughter just told me that she has hvs1 for the last 4 years. She had a swab test days after first outbreak, it came back positive. She was also having a psoriasis outbreak. 6 months in a blood test came back negative, 1 year in another blood test negative. My daughter also suffers with psoriasis and ibs with is linked to the psoriasis.  There is also genital psoriasis that looks like the herpes virus. So does she have it or not...I looked up so much on google but things are conflicting to say the least. I am hoping to get some insight here. Thank you all!!!
