I found out about two months ago that my boyfriend of two years had given me herpes I had just had my first sexual experience after dating him for two years, he never knew he had herpes. My nurse told me that after taking vlatrex for two weeks I would be cured. The weekend after my two weeks on valtrex was up I went on a canoe trip where I slept with a new guy. Then my friend that I had told about my herpes told me that herpes isn't curable. I used protection with this new guy and I had just gotten off valtrex. I have called him twice to tell him but he hasn't answered his phone and won't call me back. How do I let him know, before we slept together we were talking about having a relationship. Now I think I was just a weekend fling. I don't want to tell him by sending him a letter or by texting him or by leaving it as a message.

I would recommend talking to him even though it sounds as though he's not interested in a relationship with you; he deserves to know. Explain the situation and regardless of what he may say remember that you know the truth about your situation.

I can not believe a nurse told you that you would be CURED!!!!!! She must be the stupidest, most idiotic bovine creature on earth and should not be allowed to practice nursing/medicine ANYWHERE! This sickens me. I am so sorry you were misinformed, but this seems to be the going thing lately; people in the medical field know less than WE do about herpes. There is NO EXCUSE FOR THIS. NONE. Zero. Zip.

I am thorougly disgusted right now. Then we wonder why this shit is spreading like wildfire.....because we have ignoramuses telling folks that they can be "cured" with Valtrex. Oy vey!

I am sorry honey that you were told this, I truly am. Keep trying to call this cat and tell him, however, if he doesn't call you back, then I don't know, screw him. He sounds like he might be a player. Make your best most valiant effort to tell him, then be done with it. I hope I am wrong, but.......some men (and women) are pretty convincing about their intentions, when they mean the opposite.

From here on out, make sure you do tell potential partners/lovers about your status. Some people might freak out and reject you, but I think you will find that most are pretty understanding and cool, so long as you take extra precautions.

Good luck to ya!

      https://imgur.com/a/cVi8yJY 2 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex. Few days later I wake up with a stinging sensation in my urethra. I don't have any blisters, lesions or redness, my penis looks completely normal from the outside, but the stinging in my urethra is always there. Urinating doesn't make the pain worse. From the research I've done and how my body feels I'm pretty sure I caught genital hsv1. To make matters worse I think I transmitted it to my eyelid by touching my infected penis and then my eyelid which did develop a blister. Can anyone look at my lower eyelid and tell me if it looks anything like herpes?  I forgot to add that the blister is painless, but my eye is a bit watery. Other than that it's fine and my eyesight is good. Considering how this all developed in a matter of a week after I had unprotected sex it can't be much else than herpes..

      Hey I see that they also sell the pill form in 100 mg and 500 mg form. Do you think this is as affective? They have the regular and extract version of the pill. Which would you think is the right one to get? And how many pills per day to get the same effect of say 16 seeds?

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.
