Diagnosed last week


Recommended Posts

I went to my gynacologist for a yearly papsmear and to see what was up with a yeast infection that I couldn't kick. Turns out I had a yeast infection and herpes. I was so upset because I have been married for 10 years and I have never cheated. I instantly blamed my husband. We fought and I couldn't quit crying! HERPES!! ME!!! I have only had 3 sexual partners including my husband! After I finished blaming him I started my research. It turns out that 5 different doctors now, have told me that it is perfectly normal to have herpes for years, even 10, and not have an outbreak. And, my husband went and had a blood test and it came back negative. Found out that blood tests aren't all that accuarte. You need an sore to be swabbed to be 100% accurate. He has never had a sore like I thought I hadn't.. Now I wonder how many yeast infections might have been outbreaks and I never knew. I have only had like 4 in my entire life but who knows now!

I had a 3 day supply of Valtrex for this recent outbreak and it made my back, neck and scalp line break out with little pimples and bumps!! Other than that I feel normal for the most part...

Has anyone else been diagnosed while married and believes that their partner is NOT cheating? Any support would be great!

I just found out that I have herpes TODAY.. I just posted all about it.. I too am married. Only 2 years but have been together for 5 years. I just dont get it either...... My husband has to get tested, at least that will answer some of my questions.. Im happy to hear that there are cases that it didnt show up for YEARS AND YEARS.... Ive been reading on the internet all day!! And I see it always saying an outbreak comes 2-10 days after being in contact.. Which would not make sense in my case, my husband and I didnt have sex then!

I have only been with 4 people including my husband..... One guy was from 7 or 8 years ago, with no condom and thats where Im thinking I got this...... Or my husband is carrying it and shows no symptoms.. If I had gotten this right after having sex, then I would worry more.. But we havnt done it in a long time so its all out of nowhere!

There are other people out there like yOU!

      To give some context I hve been suffering with this for the last 6/7 years this came about after I had varicella zoster on the inside of my body a week after I started getting clusters of spots on the top of my buttock they are not painful as such can be itchy at times but majority of the time I don’t feel it when I have an outbreak. I’ve been to various doctors who say it’s a fungal skin infection or a bacterial skin infection. I’ve asked if it’s herpes but they will say it’s not without even testing it.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      @WilsoInAus could you kindly have a look :) also how long does it typically take for herpes blisters to develop into sores

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us
