Well, hello everyone, is probably the best way to start off a paragraph in a forums site, so there I go. I've had HSV-2 for almost 2 years now, got it from my ex-wife even though I'm extremely young. I've only had to tell 1 other partner of mine that I've had it, (the only other partner I've had since my divorce), until tonight...My first girlfriend was actually really good with dealing with it, asked me a lot of questions, found out all the right info, and gave me the time of day to explain all the things that she may have been ignorant to before. I had a 4 month relationship with her and she never got the virus. So now I'm back from Iraq (in the Marines) and have recently met someone very nice that I just told about my having the virus. Man, this was so much tougher than the first time only because it had to be done over the phone...long distance relationship, long story, but I didn't want to go to visit her and have to tell her there before we could be physically intimate. So she seemed to take the information really well, got off the phone, she went to take a shower and now I'm sitting here wondering if she's going to call back. Wish me luck.

if she doesnt call back, even if to say shes not prepared to take the risk, she aint worth it...

if u like her enough to tell her, i reckon she will call back! hopefully with good news!

I wish, i wish, i wish!

First of all, kudos to you! There should be more people like you out there!

And I keep hoping, dreaming, wishing that I'll meet someone like you. Everytime I have "the talk," I'm secretly hoping the guy will beat me to the punch, or at least have it as well.

Unfortunately, though, this has not happened and seems unlikely even though the numbers are climbing every day. It's because of that damn testing thing, why don't more people know that HSV has to have seperate testing?!?

Sorry to rant, I posted to commend you and let you know that if this doesn't work out with this girl, there are women out there that care about doing the right thing and are in the same perdicament, noless.

so far so good

Well, so far so good. I got my call back, and then had a conversation for an hour with her without even bringing the subject back up. She's definitely not a person that wants to contract HSV, but so far she's getting more information, talking to a friend of her's with "1". I'll keep you all posted, and thanks for the recent replies, it's always nice to know that there are people out there that share the same problems.

Believe me, it truly is a desire to be able to talk to someone and right in the middle of the talk, she comes back and says she has it too. That would make so many things so much easier, but until then, I'll still be safe and do things the right way.

Wish me luck and maybe in the end it will be just fine, I think the main problem, which has been states over and over in these forums, is that many people are ignorant or oblivious to the actual facts of this virus, how its treatable, what the chances are so to speak of contracting from a safe partner. As I told her, it's not so much that she's guaranteed to contract it, its simply that I get my "man period" on occasion and won't be having sex with her, and she needs to find me worth taking a risk. Thanks again for the posts, this turned into being something a little longer than I anticipated.

Okay...this sounds stupid, but I tried rly hard and can't figure it out. How do you edit posts? I look like an ass saying "good lucky" - like its a joke or something.

      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
