Hey everyone.. Just looking for ppl my age perhaps from my area to chat with. I have a pretty positive outlook on HSV after only being diagnosed early this November with GHSV-1. Talking here has really helped. Just looking for male or female friends. :wavey:

There is a very good group in Toronto that meets once a month.

You will find it very helpful if you can make it, even for one visit.

I'm in hamilton too......29/f. I just found out late last week so this is all still pretty new to me but I'm glad my doctor gave me this website it has helped tremendously before I was feeling like a threeheaded creature and ppl would be able to tell as soon as they looked at me and that I was the only person this happened to but that's not the case at all its great to be able to talk to others who I know won't judge and know what I'm going thru because they have experienced or are experiencing it

Start a Hamilton support group!!!

Or come to the T.O. group if you are nervous about people in Hamilton finding out your status....

At the very least you should friend each other via this site...

Im sorry this has happened but you should know that it only gets better. Having hsv1 is the NORM. You will likely not have many (or if you are lucky zero) recurring outbreaks. Ghsv1 is actually less likely to be spread than ohsv1. Yes, it is unfortunate that this occured but use this positively. Use this as a wake up call to look after yourself, be healthy and be thankful for life.

      Ok. That's true. I would def. use protection but i was just thinking I should say something. I haven't made an decisions yet so nothing has happened. And also thanks for your response.

      Im thinking alot of one night stands are usually ppl you dont know. So i assume alot of ppl take the risk and have protected sex or even unprotected sex knowing they will never see thst person ever again. Especially if the transmission rate is low while using protection

      I mean by that same logic anybody would be crazy to have sex with us ever  lol ppl we end up in relationships with are at risk the most aren't they? Since that would mean regular sex...  I'm asking to see if anybody has ACTUALLY disclosed to a one night stand because I've read on other sites that ppl have done it but most are blogs like the one here https://www.emilydepasse.com/eldsoul/2018/3/25/ask-emily-dating-with-herpes where basically the writer is responding to a question vs me actually having the ability to talk to the person who actually has the experience

      http://www.eligiblemagazine.com/2013/03/14/lube-up-with-coconut-oil/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10813049 https://www.drgonzalezmd.com/avoid-secondary-herpes-infections-with-coconut-oil/   Coconut Oil has been shown to contain alot of antiviral properties. Herpes simply cannot survive in it, however I'm curious at how effective it is at preventing herpes transmission during sex, and if it'd make you near invincible. Herpes during sex is transmitted through skin to skin friction which coconut oil significant reduces.  Also if the virus were to leave the carrier's body it would get caught up in the layer of oil and killed. But how fast? Also, The lube drys out as you rub against each other, so you'd have to keep re-applying every so often.   Depending on the intensity of the sex, the coconut oil will get thoroughly rubbed into the persons skin layers, which'd mean the virus undoubtedly be on the persons skin and flesh. But, Theoretically, The virus should be dead/inactive due to being surrounded by the anti viral coconut oil, so it wouldn't even be able to crawl into their body to infect.   We need to get a bunch of lab mice or monkey, Infect 2 with herpes (Control and Test groups) , cover the test group in coconut oil, and let them have sex. If the test group shows less herpes transmission rates than that means that Coconut oil decreases STD TRANSMISSION!   Why hasn't this been done yet? Even if it didn't reduce transmission by 100%, 50% would lower std rates significantly.
