Newly diagnosed, please help

Sorry if this is long but well, here goes. I recently was diagnosed with Herpes in August after having an excruciatingly painful set of symptoms which I had only once before about a month before, however this time it hurt to walk, sit down, pee, have sex.

My symptoms were, a sharp stabbing pain in my genital area, spots, discharge, swollen glands in my groin area and more so in the morning I couldn't hold my wee, it just came out and I couldn't control it.

Since about May I have been having all kinds of symptoms that are not traditionally connected to herpes but from what I see on this forum, some of you agree on symptoms which are not traditionally listed as herpes symptoms.

Since I was diagnosed I am finding I have had various symptoms on and off that come and go.

I am feeling low emotionally about it and at the moment I am on my 2nd proper outbreak in which I have soreness, some spots, some discharge, aches and pains in my womb, ovary area, swollen groin glands and I can't control my weeing.

These symptoms are incredibly worrying to me and I just wanted to know if anyone else has experienced a feeling of depression and over emotional about having and suffering with Herpes?

I know your physical and emotionally all too well. Ive had over 20 outbreaks and the pain/itchiness never goes away. So I never know when an outbreak will a occur. I feel the same physically even when outbreaks are not happening. Every minute of my life I think about how this virus ruined my love life. Having children will never happen becausr I cant have sex with all this soreness. The thought of infecting someone else makes me wanna crawl in a dark hole and rot away. I no longer feel sexy or secure about myself. Depression has made me lose 30lbs and im extremely skinny. Doesnt look good at all. Its been two years since diagnosis and I still cant come to peace with having genital herpes. I never slept around used condoms with my sex partners and stopped using protection with three of them a few months later because they were becoming long term relationships. Im lost and feel so alone although im engaged. I was with my fiance when I found out. Ugh, I could just dig my own grave somedays. This virus literally destroys peoples lives.

Sorry to hear that. I have had soreness during sex a few years ago when with another partner, I met my now partner in February and I would say the symptoms I now recognise as herpes I have had since about May, June. A stabbing soreness in the same place on my genitals. I put it down to, without being rude, over excitable sex but when I had it again, accompanied by the symptoms I listed, the nurse mentioned Herpes and after a test was done, I was diagnosed. I had also started to get headaches-more dull aches in my head, more regular migraines than I've ever had and i wondered if that could be down to the Herpes as well. It is horrendous, I have a newish job which brings stress with it, my family life, just my whole life feels so much more stress filled because of it.

      @cas9 actually I think it’s you who doesn’t understand proof, proof by nature is subjective, so what is proof to me might not be proof to you... I have seen many cases where people have nothing to gain sharing their stories about herpes, and healing themselves, now if you continually search for this you’ll find it in comment threads or perhaps blogs.... perhaps they are lying? Well...Maybe some, but to think everyone who has claimed to heal themselves of herpes is a liar is simply a belief...  if you wanna believe that, go ahead, but after careful  analysis of many stories and researching the virus myself I am convinced the body can rid itself of herpes, what comes in, can come out, it just takes time and effort... But I like to keep it simple, God can heal anything so at this point you guys are just speaking nonsense

      So my 20 year old daughter and I just found out she has genital herpes.  She is away at college and dealing with it on her own.  I am trying to be as supportive as I can by reading everything I can find from reputable sites.  She is staying busy this week with as she is involved with her schools freshman orientation for the new class coming in.  She was told by an urgent care doctor that she had it Visually, they did a blood test and called her to confirm it is herpes.  I told her to ask what type and she was told they don’t really type anymore because there is to much gray area but that it is a new infection. From what I have read that seems odd and she should find out what type.  I told her to inform anyone she may have had sex with in the last 6 months, she said she told the guy and he was an ass about it which of course makes the emotional side worse.  She is emotionally a wreck about it and I am trying to help her understand it’s not the end of the world.  Of course being 20 she feels she will not have the chance to meet anyone who would want to date her now. Any advice would be great....she is still in the middle of her first outbreak but I think the antiviral has been helping since she went to the doc as soon as she thought something wasn’t right.  I just want to help her as best I can!

      Sorry for the long post. Just giving some backstory..... Hello. I'm new to this site. I was told I had HSV2 about 5 years ago. I had no clue because I never had any symptoms. I was just getting some blood work done while pregnant after switching to a new ob/gyn and this was discovered. Pregnancy was ended for personal reasons. Still afterwards never had any outbreaks or symptoms or anything. Fast forward to June I started feeling irritated down there. I was dealing with a lot of stress at this time. I ended up taking a pic of what it looked like down there so I could see what was going on. I only saw 1 spot. In the pic you will see the spot on top. It always just looked like a crater or something. It never blistered up or popped or crusted up. I knew I had the virus so I started researching outbreaks and pics and things. I wasnt sure if this was an out break or not because most of what I was dealing with didnt match up. I never felt sick. It didn't hurt to sit or wear panties. I didnt have any tingling or itching or burning sensation. I just felt irritated. I know every case is different though. So then I researched some home remedies and I ended up buying lysine 1000 mg to take and also used tea tree oil and acv diluted w/ water. Once I started messing with it, it started burning when urine got on the spot. And I think I didn't dilute the acv enough. I took 2 lysine pills a day until I wasnt feeling anything down there. So after a few days this healed up and everything was fine again but the spot never really went away. Things have been settled down and no stress since then. All of a sudden yesterday morning I started feeling that same irritation again. This morning I felt around down there and felt nothing so I took a pic again and the thing on bottom is what I found. I put some acv and  tea tree oil on it again.  And same as last time...ever since I touched it, it's been hurting just a tad and it looks exactly the same. I'm not sure if this is a outbreak or not but I'm pretty sure it is. I'm just not experiencing most of the symptoms I read about. Can someone give me their opinion please? Thank you.
