How do we live a normal life when everything is no longer normal?

Recommended Posts

Like many others here, I am very confused. Husband had culture done last week that came back negative and has to have blood work done in 8 weeks. In the meantime, we are both very confused, not sure how to protect one another, and unsure how to live a "normal" life.... :(

You certainly can live a normal life with this, I know, I have. I have met other married individuals who have been married decades and their spouse never got it. Even if you husband does come back positive, it is no big deal. It is a virus nothing more. The flu virus kills 30,000 people a year, so next to that this is nothing.

Has your husband ever had mono, chicken pox or a cold sore? If so, he has herpes. All those are caused by the herpes virus.

And if he does not have this, then there is a very good chance he will never get it. Check out this article on transmission rates and you will see it is not that easy to transmit:

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?
