Well at first I thought it was a rash. Than I was like again so started to be more carefull with cleaning myself. For some reason I knew it was that. I honestly don't know if I had it for a while or if I recently got it. Im just so confuse with knowing what to do next. I went to plan parenthood and they just called me and told me it was positive for herpes. All they told me was come in and get medication. I was like okay what do I do next? What is best for me? Do I have to go to a private doctor? I would take any advice!!

Welcome. I am no expert and new to the forum, but I would want to know what type it is. I would call the clinic back for that information if they didn't tell you already. I would then establish with a physician who can follow your care going forward, prescribe meds if you need them and counsel you. Also, this forum is an excellent resource. You will meet the most amazing poeple here with excellent advice, true life experiences and compassion. Best wishes!

Hi, it would help you to read as much as you can on Herpes. Talk to your dr about anything you may have questions about. It will take time but this is not the end. You will have your good days and your bad days. But this site is good just to know their is someone there to help you or just vent if needed.. I'm here if you everyneed someone to talk to..

did the rash have sores or was it just red and itchy?

Its just red and itchy.... why? Well I have read a lot but my most fear is not being able to be with someone that would accept me with this!

      No it’s not a fact at all. How can it be a correlation if it happens no more than chance? Remember 70-80% of people using PW have herpes.

      Hello! Thanks so much for your reply. I was told (and believe) I have HSV 2. They told me that on the phone; it was confirmed through swab. I have never taken a blood test or been tested for it otherwise. I've read mixed reviews about HSV1 providing protection-- because some studies seem to allude that it does. If this is true- it makes sense because I never had chicken pox or HSV1 in my entire life so I think it explains why I caught HSV2 from a one night experience (just my luck and just my own theory) Although I still experience twitching in my body -- I feel happy that the valtrex every other day suppresses it. But I do wonder, because I'm experiencing such reduced symptoms; if my shedding is reduced too. I doubt it but just a thought.  Anyways - I can live with condoms but I don't want to.. so I'm hoping for some guidance

      This is no great surprise that HSV is pushed back in ExcisionBio's pipeline.  I'd be surprised if it isn't pushed back again. The chart they put out is painfully uninformative.  Sloppy.  And that's a red flag in and of itself. My guess is that those arrows are progress rather than efficiency, but it's not completely clear.  But if a scientific company can't get this chart right, then I really wonder what other mistakes they are making. I don't have a ton of confidence in this.  But we'll see.  I'm glad that it seems they are trying to do something.  I think CRISPR could be a solution to HSV (some kind of solution).  But I question whether it will be ExcisionBio that makes it in the end.

      Good to know.  I don't think this is a listed company, but from what I've read, they've gotten decent funding.  Around $70 million.  Most of that probably won't go to HSV research, but it's good they have some money. By comparison, ExcisionBio has raised $10 million.

      The fact that Admedus is farming this out, kind of tells you it's a long shot at best.  It's good that it hasn't been abandoned.  But I'm doubtful much will come of this.  But maybe new knowledge about what doesn't work will come, and that's always helpful.
