Itsmeeeee

Hey to anyone who reads this. My names K and I'm 30yrs old. Was told a few days ago that I have genital herpes. After a month and a half of being ignored by my doctor and accused of being mental, leaving the surgery crying my eyes out, I went straight to my local GUM Clinic who agreed to look down below.

She found 2 tiny little blisters inside me. She was amazed that my doctor didnt believe the pain I was in. I just felt relief that someone actually believed me. She gave me some tablets to take, 5 for 5 days which I've taken, the first few days my symptoms improved. No more feeling like I've been kicked or burning. Then they came back. I'm not sure what to do. I know I'm depressed, will burst into tears for no reason, I just want to sleep.

The only person I've told is my mum, shes been great but i need to get better to help her, shes disabled and all we have is each other.

I have an appointment with GUM doctor on Friday, so I'll see what she says. I'll do anything to feel like me again.

I just wanted to say Hi, and I hope if anyone reads this that they are well and happy too. I hope one day I will be, I've never felt so alone.

Hey itsme, welcome to our site :wavey: I too have had genital herps type 2 for the past 24 years. When you say Gum clinic, I'm to assume your in the UK ? I have spoken with many there and believe me your not the only one there that has had ignorant or uneducated doctors. You are not alone. Get some Epsom salts for your bath waters. Also get on Lysine it will help keep h from replicating in the body. I also recommend Vit.b12 it promotes nerves health, gives energy and relieves stresses. I take antivirals and these other two things daily. I know how hard it is. My last Dr declared me cured after being dormant for 23 years, I was having my second ob ever. I've only had two on my meds. Take care and try these things I've mentioned. It will get better and you will start to feel like yourself again. I am sorry for your mom honey, we took care of my Fil when he had brain cancer, tended him till he passed. It's a hard thing but truley makes you a wonderful daughter. Take care and just know your not alone. Hugs bebe, truly Ace :)

Hey Ace! Thank you for replying to me, I didn't think anyone would, it means a lot ") Yes I'm in the UK and surrounded by many many ignorant doctors, its either because I'm chubby or I smoke here, I assume its been the same for others. Hes put me on an anti depressant that works on the nerves, its called Amitriptyline, still in the box!

You sound really strong and brave, I hope I can be like you soon I really do. I'll get on with what you've advised straight away, in fact im going to get dressed and mooch down to the chemist now! Thank you for giving me hope, my mum says Thank you too. I want to get better for her, I'm so happy you understand but I'm sorry for your loss. It means a lot knowing that someones out there who knows and who hasnt judged me, that wants to help and who understands. Take care and for what must be the millionth time, written here and in my mind Thank you Xxxxxx

Hey sweety it should not matter how you look, or if you smoke, you deserve respect. I can relate to you and your hardships your dealing with. I've been there. I even had the Dr , who I see now, he says I don't look like a woman with h. So me being me I had to ask " hey what do they look like"? He actually said oh oh I stuck my foot in it didn't I. I said you sure did, lol. He gave me my two years of supressive therapy antivirals and actually sat down heard me out and took the informations I gave him about this site. It's ashamed we are judged for so many reasons , there will always be some ignorant person, just ignore them. These are people who won't matter in your life. Take care sweety, I'm here if you need me. Hugs, Ace :hithere:

      Hey all! I’m new and my diagnosis is pending. I’ve done so much research that I have a new understanding and respect for people living with herpes. That being said it wasn’t like that alway, I had been a part of a stigma we all know very well up until my latest annual pap. So I went in and had my pap and just a routing std check. Two days later and my OB calls and says everything’s good on the pap and the bloood work came back but there’s an acute result for herpes. Although he states he doesn’t know which kind or where and to come back in 6 weeks. So me being the 22 yo uneducated student, freaks out. I am asymptomatic and at the time he advises to check around my mouth and lips for any cold sores. I had a minor canker sore like lesion on my gum above my tooth and that was it super minor discomfort. So I went into a care now and the doctor did a pcr swab of the cut and another igm and an igg. So it’s about 5 days waiting period and during that time I get sick, similar to pharyngitis ( it was so bad I went back, the doctor gave me  Valacyclovir in case it was an outbreak). So now I really am thinking ok this is most like HSV-1 being it’s possible but less likely to be HSV -2 And I have zero symptoms on my genitals unless it’s dormant. And then plot twist, I get all results back, second igm, viral swab, and igg and all negative! What is going on?

      Hey @sheikha and welcome to the website. Different tests around the world have different numbers as to what means positive.  Do you have details of what test was performed? Does the paperwork indicate what number means positive? For some tests it’s 1.1, others 11 and some more than 20!

      What symptoms brought you to test in the first place 
    • Mikeike3
      Over 3.3 is a strong positive. You could repeat that test. I'd assume I had it.

      Lysine seemed to dry the blisters during outbreaks.  They would take about the same time to heal but there would be no/less fluid while using lysine.  At first it seemed like it was reducing the amount of outbreaks, but after a couple months they were coming just as often as before - if not more often.
