I really, really want to die. I was diagnosed with genital hsv1 in June. My first ob was the worst pain I have ever experienced in my life and I am terrified to go through that again. I have so many questions, some of which Google can't answer.
I think I have an ob right now, being only my second one. I'm not sure though, cause it is much, much less severe than my first. I've read that recurring ob's are typically a lot better than the first, but this is almost unnoticeable. Am I having an ob?
Just how contagious am I in between ob's? Am I an idiot for having sex without condoms? Am I spreading this to unsuspecting men, being a completely awful human being? I'm in a new relationship with the man of my dreams and I have not disclosed my status. I feel like scum, I know that's awful. I am just so horribly disgusted with myself for having an incurable std, I know others would be too and I do t do well with rejection. But because I'm having what I think is another ob, I need to tell him. How the hell do I do that?
I'm so deeply depressed, I don't know what to do anymore. I want to end it all, it's actually just really sad.
I wish I would've known this site exsisted when I was diagnosed. Those were some very, very dark days.
Hi, and welcome. I am not sure whether your symptoms are related to a herpes diagnosis or not but I hope I can answer some of your questions, yes you can have hsv1 both orally and on the genitals, but would have to be infected at the same time, is what I was told. So you may have had oral hsv, but it wouldn't then develop into genital hsv later on. I have heard of other woman complain of an increase in bv, Uti's and yeast infections, and yes tailbone pain is possible. Sometimes people think a cold sore is something else (fever blister, pimple), or they just don't recall having one, but may have as a young child. I have not experienced these symptoms. I had a "classic" initial outbreak with obvious herpes lesions. I hope this helps somewhat. I can't say whether you have both oral and genital. Without a lesion, it's hard to say.
I know its just a patent application, but man that would be a dream come true "RNA guided eradication of herpesvirus simplex.." how about eradication of herpes simplex virus in first human patient, now that would be a news headline i would cry if i ever saw.. a man can dream..
