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!

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.

      I'd like to thank everyone for their input. Let's please keep things civil. I am going to continue with Acyclovir, until I feel my symptoms disappear. If they do not subside, I plan on consulting a physician again.

      So... this would be a revolutionary simple Solution, to an extreme problem: transmitting and getting STD's where condoms don't help.  And people don't give a fuck and noone answers.    Now we just have to find out if it works.  - Does it hinder herpes transmissions (and perhaps also other stuff like hpv) - What is the cost (per sex) - What is the practicality
