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..

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
