Hello all

Recommended Posts


Well this feels a little weird for me to be here because for the longest time I didnt want to admit that I had this. Actually I didnt know until my ex had her outbreak and then I went through a stressful situation and then BAM!! It was as clear as the cold sore on my face that I had herpes. It was a very life altering experience since I am a very private person and hide my flaws to the best of my ability. I havent had a outbreak for a while now but I am so self conscious about another outbreak happening again. I havent told anyone about it ,my ex is the only one that knows but we dont talk so its quite lonely having this. Ihave always had a fear of rejection and now that fear has been magnified a million times over. Its hard sometimes to trust God in a situation like this but I do, and I know that good will come out of it in some shape or form but its still one of the most difficult things that I have ever dealt with. Oh well cant turn back time, gotta keep moving forward but sometimes I wonder what that means when dealing with this? Thanks for reading this introduction ( if you want to call it that lol) God bless you all, bye

      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

      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.

      Just been diagnosed but no symptoms beyond a tingling in my uretha opening. Result via IgG was <3.5 herpes 1 and >3.3 herpes 2..(what does that even mean in terms of advancemen). 4 Drs later - told can be a false positive and another - its a true reading. So im still in the dark. 17 days after first tingle still nothing beyond the tingling. freaking out as not young....my new partner of 7 months has been unfaithful. If i have i’m pretty certain he was aware, came back from overseas acting weird.  Previous partner was 33 years monogamous relationship.  Disclosure- what am I disclosing? Do I or dont I have it.  I wanted to do a PCR but no area to swab!
