how to break the news?

Recommended Posts


I recently got diagonised and I knew I got it from my ex, he knew he has it but for hasn't had a OB for a long time and thinks that he won't give it to anyone. He is on anti-depressant and i don't wan to make him feel worse but at the same time who do I tell but him? I almsot feel that he is either going to deny the fact that he gave it to me, or he would just feel really bad, both i don't want to happen. If anything all i want right now is someone who i can talk to openly about it. don't really know what to do...

Where in NY do you live? There are many nice support groups there.

Well if you ex already knows he has it then it won't be a big blow to him. You just need to inform him that he is still contagious and he should consider either using condoms or suppressive meds the next time he dates someone.

Come to the "Chat Room", there you will find 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?
