Diagnosed Halloween 2011

Recommended Posts

Kitty3443

Before being diagnosed, the main concern was this whole "who's to blame" thing. It was this whole drama of sleeping with my ex and him not telling me that he had slept with someone else (who is now his new gf) since we broke up (we had been sleeping together a bit since that time). And so she's blaming me, but I think it's her and yada-yada-blah! It was a horrible emotional time.

And when I found out I really have it, things sunk in and I felt abandoned and alone, like I'll never be able to love again. I hope to encourage others and be encouraged through this site.

I found out on Valentine's Day 2011. No clue whom I got it from and I felt like absolute crap. Alone, depressed and diagnosed with herpes.

Im blessed to say I was diagnosed a yr after I was engaged. My partner tells me we'll b fine and its too late to worry about who gave it to who. It still has ruined me. I feel like a walking contagious, dirty person. Any1 can become infected. Most ppl never know they have it. I wish I was asymptomatic, but then Im thankful to know I have so I can prevent from spreading it. I was never the type of person to sleep around and used protection with my few partners besides the ones that became serious relationships. We are not alone. There are millions infected and the statistics say its only on the rise.

Hello,

I was visually diagnosed the friday before Halloween but got the call Halloween afternoon that I have GH2. Well, how did I get it, was it the guy I was dating for six months April 2011-Aug 2011 or the new BF that we have used protection everytime. I called the ex just to let him know, and he wa pretty okay or so I thougth, thanked me for the aler and said he would go get checked. Well, the next day he texts me to say "how do I know it was him", well I wasn't accusing him, I was giving him a chance to get checked and be proactive. Do I think is was, well yes, bc the one time we didn't use protection I got what I thought was a yeat infection that was on and off from end July to sept, then it went away or so I thought. Met the new guy in Sept, and we had intercourse the week before I found out and within two days I could hardly walk I was in such pain, went to dr and was told it looked like herpes was given meds swabbed and the results came back Halloween. My apologies this is so long, because yes I felt dirty and that no one would want to be with me, well then I found this site and it has been such a help. Please get into the chat room, everyone there is understanding and knowledgable and have felt just like us. It will get better, I know and we will all be better in the long run.

      @cas9 actually I think it’s you who doesn’t understand proof, proof by nature is subjective, so what is proof to me might not be proof to you... I have seen many cases where people have nothing to gain sharing their stories about herpes, and healing themselves, now if you continually search for this you’ll find it in comment threads or perhaps blogs.... perhaps they are lying? Well...Maybe some, but to think everyone who has claimed to heal themselves of herpes is a liar is simply a belief...  if you wanna believe that, go ahead, but after careful  analysis of many stories and researching the virus myself I am convinced the body can rid itself of herpes, what comes in, can come out, it just takes time and effort... But I like to keep it simple, God can heal anything so at this point you guys are just speaking nonsense

      So my 20 year old daughter and I just found out she has genital herpes.  She is away at college and dealing with it on her own.  I am trying to be as supportive as I can by reading everything I can find from reputable sites.  She is staying busy this week with as she is involved with her schools freshman orientation for the new class coming in.  She was told by an urgent care doctor that she had it Visually, they did a blood test and called her to confirm it is herpes.  I told her to ask what type and she was told they don’t really type anymore because there is to much gray area but that it is a new infection. From what I have read that seems odd and she should find out what type.  I told her to inform anyone she may have had sex with in the last 6 months, she said she told the guy and he was an ass about it which of course makes the emotional side worse.  She is emotionally a wreck about it and I am trying to help her understand it’s not the end of the world.  Of course being 20 she feels she will not have the chance to meet anyone who would want to date her now. Any advice would be great....she is still in the middle of her first outbreak but I think the antiviral has been helping since she went to the doc as soon as she thought something wasn’t right.  I just want to help her as best I can!

      Sorry for the long post. Just giving some backstory..... Hello. I'm new to this site. I was told I had HSV2 about 5 years ago. I had no clue because I never had any symptoms. I was just getting some blood work done while pregnant after switching to a new ob/gyn and this was discovered. Pregnancy was ended for personal reasons. Still afterwards never had any outbreaks or symptoms or anything. Fast forward to June I started feeling irritated down there. I was dealing with a lot of stress at this time. I ended up taking a pic of what it looked like down there so I could see what was going on. I only saw 1 spot. In the pic you will see the spot on top. It always just looked like a crater or something. It never blistered up or popped or crusted up. I knew I had the virus so I started researching outbreaks and pics and things. I wasnt sure if this was an out break or not because most of what I was dealing with didnt match up. I never felt sick. It didn't hurt to sit or wear panties. I didnt have any tingling or itching or burning sensation. I just felt irritated. I know every case is different though. So then I researched some home remedies and I ended up buying lysine 1000 mg to take and also used tea tree oil and acv diluted w/ water. Once I started messing with it, it started burning when urine got on the spot. And I think I didn't dilute the acv enough. I took 2 lysine pills a day until I wasnt feeling anything down there. So after a few days this healed up and everything was fine again but the spot never really went away. Things have been settled down and no stress since then. All of a sudden yesterday morning I started feeling that same irritation again. This morning I felt around down there and felt nothing so I took a pic again and the thing on bottom is what I found. I put some acv and  tea tree oil on it again.  And same as last time...ever since I touched it, it's been hurting just a tad and it looks exactly the same. I'm not sure if this is a outbreak or not but I'm pretty sure it is. I'm just not experiencing most of the symptoms I read about. Can someone give me their opinion please? Thank you.
