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.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.

      Here is the full science and documentation behind the herpes patent . RNA GUIDED ERADICATION OF HERPES SIMPLEX TYPE I AND OTHER RELATED HERPESVIRUSES   https://patents.justia.com/patent/20180000970   I hope this will help answer your questions.

      The fact that there are so many people contracting hsv-1 genitally from as little as one sexual encounter leads me to believe that it likely more 'tuned' to the genital region than medicine realizes.
