never before felt the way I feel now :(

Recommended Posts


I am devastated :( I found out yesterday that I have genital herpes. I'm also 15 weeks pregnant and this should be a happy time in my life however I can barely muster up a smile I feel sad angry pretty much every negative emotion u can think of...late last week something was funny down there so I went to the doctors asap he told me he was almost sure it was herpes...and sure enough monday morning I got the phone call confirming my worst fear. I told my partner on thurs that the doctor thought it was herpes and then he informed me that he had what he says was a pimple on the shaft of his penis last week but it was gone we had intercourse monday and by thursday I was running to my doctor anyways I told him of the doctors suspicions and told him he better go get tested I caught him talking to other girls this summer and he denies that anything happened but I've caught him lying about other minor things so who's to say he wouldn't lie about that anyways he still hasn't gotten tested and I'm finding that really odd as if he knew he had something already I'm really upset and confused and all I do is cry :(

Don't cry over this little virus. 80% of adults have it and it really is no big deal. Have you ever had mono, chicken pox or a cold sore? If so, you already had herpes.

I have had this a long time and it means nothing to me. I have lived a completely normal life.

And now that your doctor knows, they will do everything possible to protect your child.

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?
