lostone1919

So I put a post talking about how my sifnificant other cheated and now I have blisters... after reading more info (didn't realize when I posted some people have it with no symptoms forever)... I believe I have had it since 2004 possibly, for sure since 2006! I had an experience in 04 where I thought I had a yeast infection and if I kept down there clean (using moist towelettes it was managable). A few years later I had a few times where the same thing happened but it was worse and I had to bath for it to managable then I started using otc topical creme for yeast infections but was using a tube I a day of max strength. Went to the dr and he said i used too much of the creme and it caused my skin to be super irritated. It hurt so bad I never had sex or wanted to. Not sure exactly when bc life is chaotic beyond belief but w/ in the past few months I had another bad yi so I thought and had to use a lot of thw otc creme but I had sex (was under thd influence of drugs and w my aignificant other who knew I was having issues down there and didn't care, no pritection). Well tonight I see I have blisters. I have been reading and I'm really thinking I have had it this whole time. My signifacant other has given me at least 1 std from cheating on me and getting tested tomorrow to see what else I may have... but now I'm thinking I'm the culperate w/ this one. He has not complained about anything being wrong but sort of remember once he had a rash type thing but we thought it was caused by sex but that was a while ago before i possiblely had an outbreak and we had unprotected sex. I now have blisters. We have been having protected sex since I found out about the cheating. I am in shock. I am not sure what to think! If he gave it to me I can handle that bc I can't get rid of it and we both have it... if I have it and he doesn't.... I'm sure hell leave me. I am going to tell him once I know and won't have sex w/ him until I know... I just don't know what to think!!!

Thank you for posting this. Your the only one on here that sounds like me

(not the heartbreak stuff. By the way he sounds like a dick)

but how your hpsv presented. I had a yeast infection two weeks after drunk unsafe sex. Never had one before.

14months later (after not having had sex for about 4months) a bad flu, a really bad yeast infection that wouldn't go away no matter what, and then a wee little very painful blister got tested and I have it. Its been 5months now still have that "yeast infection' No OB and antivirals didn't help with the YI. So I thinking I'm going to be leaking and loveless the rest of my life.

Oh and I really think you should leave him

see, this is what I'm talking about...after thinking about this stupid virus so much, I can say that Iknow I was exposed to it with my ex husband since2003..see, in other countries people find the fever blisters to be a normal thing, a kind of alergy per say.. here in us its where it gets blown out of proportion enough to have some suicide cases attached to it.. but anyways.. he passed away in 2009..but I know he had it, his mom has it too.. now I'm going trough a very stressful time in my life.. maybe that triggered it to my first ob at the end of october.. now what I'm not so sure it was all him.. I was diagnosted with both strands so maybe the ghsv woke the other one up?.. I don't know anymore, but However it was I have them already... I just hope my antibodies keep them on the zzzz.. still learning how to manage myself..

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?

      The full article is behind a paywall but you could write the the authors and request a copy.

      The jury is still out as there needs to be additional experiments. Editas' results make me believe dosing was insufficient among other issues.
