Hey, just joined!


Recommended Posts

I did try start off my own herpes forum, but it didn't take off... infact I was the only member hehe.

Anyway, I'm Rachel, 17 and from Scotland. I have HSV-1 genitally, I had my first outbreak in July but I soon got over the shock and everything. I'm currently in college, but still not sure what kind of job I want. I love listening to music. And I don't know what else to say, lol. So if anyone wants to know anything, just ask.

I hope to get to know you all.

Hi Angel

I am new to this website but not new to the herpes virus.

Stay away from cokes, caffiene, chocolates, nuts, because they can trigger a herpes outbreak. Stay away from the sun too.

Take Lysine capsules to get rid of the virus when you break out. If you have the money to buy meds.... buy Valtrex 1000mgs. My doc says it makes the virus dormant if you take that med.

Talk to you later. LaCandie

Well, my advice is find out as much as you can. This website is really good: http://www.herpes.org.uk/ it really helped me feel more at ease!

You don't mention that you have symptoms, but I'm assuming you do (correct me if I'm wrong) but if you do, place a cold tea bag or ice (wrapped in something) to the sores; it really helps. And eat things with lysine in them (you can get tables of food on the internet) Also drink plenty of fluids (well water and diluting juice)(If it stings when you pee) I have so much to say but can't think of it all just now.

Little Angel, I think I saw your forum. Did you mention it on Yahoo answers?

I though if you had HSV1 genitally then you don't tend to get recurrences. Is that not the case for you?

PS I'm in France - the Aulde Alliance.

Hi, I am new to this site. I was diagnosed about three weeks ago. I heard about the chocolate and other foods that trigger the outbreaks. The sad thing is I have had a big craving for chocolate and for the past week, I have eaten tons of it. I think that I am really going to get it together and practice more healthier habits. I should be practicing healthy habits anyway. I surely do not want to have another outbreak, but if you ask me, I don't think that my initial outbreak has completely gone away. I can say that the very bad pain that I had in my lower back and legs is gone as well as the bad pressure that I had in my vagina (especially when I urinated).

Eventhough, I am on here for support, I am definitely here to help anyone that I can. I do not want anyone to feel alone. It is funny how society views individuals with STD's as being dirty or careless. That may not be the case, so if anyone is feeling lonely or ostresized, please use this website to express yourself (I have and it has definitely helped in such a very short time).

Everyone has different triggers, so chocolate might not be one of yours ;) Don't know what mine are yet. Periods can also trigger outbreaks... luckily I don't think thats mine. Would add a whole different meaning to 'period' pain :p

I'm MAD!

I'm mad that there are actually people out there who knowingly transmit this life changing virus and dont seem to care how it is going to ruin someone's life. I was involved with someone for a couple of years and we broke up. I dated another man during our break and he gave me the virus. Now my ex and I have been back together for a year when I had my first outbreak. We were talking about getting married and just bought land together. Now I;m scared that this is all going to go away. He's not infected. Any advice on how to continue this relationship???

Well if he really does truely love you and want to be with you for the rest of his life then he will stay with you no matter what.

However you should put yourself in his shoes and think about how you would feel about the whole situation. You have to expect that he is going to be scared and hesitant about this but he should be given all the information he needs and he should also understand that you were simply just unlucky to have contracted this and millions of people have this, married(non h partners),have children and live a normal lives.

Does he know that you have H?

Good luck and i'm sure you guys will be fine.:D

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
