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..

      Sort of unrelated, but I remember a few months ago finding new patents filed last year for the einstein college vaccine. I wondered if they were indicative of new developments with it, but I brushed it off as probably not.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.
