Expect the Unexpectable!!

Recommended Posts


I've had genital Herpes for more than a year and a half. Doctors tested me for every STD although not for H cos they said it didn't matter which type you have as H is H anyway and treatment is the same in both cases.

I got it from a girl who had it orally (or genitally and lied to me - I never had it on my lips) and it was a real nuisance as I had severe outbreaks every 2-3 weeks for the first 6 months, constant prodromes and had to take Valtrex daily. I tried L-Lysine, not drinking alcohol, vitamin supplements, avoiding sugar, etc and nothing worked.

But I'm quite a possitive guy so went on with my life, I joined foreign language classes, a gym, played rugby, went out, played the bass, travelled around the world, had fun, and lived with so much confidence that I even got promoted at work in the meantime. Life always has things to offer.

Only problem of course was dating, as I had a few chances with girls but didn't want to do anything cos I though it would be unfair to have one night stands on this condition and didn't really meet any girl I liked enough to disclose about H, but decided to go on with my plan of enjoying life and avoiding irresponsible sex or even worse, to fall in love.

Life, hard as it is, made me then meet this gorgeous green eyed girl who I fell for straight away. But she had a boyfrienfd and I had H, a complete suicidal mission. So I decided there was nothing I could do but we kept a very good relationship, became better and better friends with time, and talked a lot for 4-5 months. So I went on holidays and when I came back, found out that she had dumped her bf and found myself kissing her on my first weekend back. I was terrified she was gonna ask me to go to her place as I didn't wanna lie to her but felt it was too early to disclose. She luckily didn't. So we started dating and turned out to be the best start I ever had with a girl. Amazing. A month after this more or less she told me she never had wanted sex cos was still recovering from her previous relationship but was now ready. So I sat with her and told her about H straight away.

I had been planning it in my head for ages and when it came out I was way clumiser than planned but she reacted really well. She admitted she didn't like it at all and was concerned but supported me and even when I suggested 'I'd understand if you'd dump me cos you can't deal with this' she replied 'are you stupid? u think I am gonna dump you only because of this? we just need to find out how to make it work for us!'. She started talking about future holidays together and other nice stuff. And I felt great.

A few days later she told me she had researched on the web and found out H is much worse than she initially thought but still supported and liked me and wanted to find a way. She wanted both of us to get tested on STDs and take it from there but was clearly more worried.

I knew this would be the end as in her mind there was a solution whereas in mine I knew this would only mean more trouble, but I had to had the test with her. I couldn't refuse.

And we got the results. I discovered I had type 1 but unexpectedly she had type 1 and type 2!!! Even though she never had any outbreak or symptons whatsoever!

So I found myself consoling her as she was worried to give type 2 to me, suggesting to me that maybe I should dump her and try to find a girl who hadn't got both types!!!

I honestly didn't care about getting type 2 as I really loved this girl and it wouldn't make any difference anyway as both types are the same sh*t but realized how ironic and surprising life can be. Ironic and surprising but beautiful, even more since that moment.

My apologies for the long rant but I'm just hoping it will help others as for me (even though I still get OBs quite regularly despite of Valtrex) it was all about going on with my life, hope for more, get more involved in social life, being honest and keep my selfconfidence... and it worked! Even without H I'd have never thought I'd get a girl like that, especially when already having a boyfriend, but I did and thought she wouldn't accept my H, she did but had reasonable doubts, we tested and it ended with me consoling her and being there for her, and it turned out to be the best relationship of my life... forget about weird treatments and don't bang your head against walls... life is there to be lived not to hide from it in your room. It's all about ATTITUDE! :D

Wow. Just wow - what a story!

Thank you so much for sharing. I've heard of the 'me too' stories around these parts - where one person finally gets the courage to tell, only to have the other person say 'me too'. This is just another take on that but more importantly, it shows not only the importance of being honest, but also being tested. So many folks out there carry the virus but don't have symptoms.

GreenDolphin - I wish you both the very best and a happy future together!

      Thanks for your story.  It seems similar to mine. Fortunately for you it seems your boyfriend is willing to pursue some kind of understanding. Since I wrote about what happened to me, my boyfriend broke up with me. The ironic thing is he told me this happened to him about 15 years ago with another woman. He said it was very traumatic for him and felt like the same thing once again. So it seems he had been exposed before and could very possibly have already been carrying the virus. Perhaps he knew and didn't tell me. I am really not sure but the relationship is over for now since he won't discuss it with me. So much fear information and confusion out there about the virus. I don't think they really understand how it happens so they tell everyone to be careful. Even having the virus it has been such a non-issue in my life until now that it appears there is so much stigma around it. It seems more like it is the Pharmaceutical companies wanting to make money off a common virus that affects so many on such a deep level, receiving love and physical contact.  Feels like a big scam to me.  The information was so different when there were no drugs to reduce or suppress the virus. It is all very confusing to me.

      I contacted one of the ayurveda doctor in india he is saying there is 60% chances of cure through ayurveda for herpes Details: Please see the treatment details mentioned below
      Treatment Duration: 12 months - 18 months - 24 months.
      Generally majority of young patients with not a long history of infection gets cured in initial 12 months, but there are possibilities that the cure might need a total of 2 year’s medication too.
      Therefore you can start with first 6 months of medication and depending upon the results and prognosis further medication can be ordered later. 
      Initial results of our medication will be felt after completion of 90 days to 120 days and generally the symptoms don’t occur after 120 days or sometimes even if the symptoms re-occurs it will be mild and will disappear shortly,
      Please understand that, we are not treating the symptoms but the virus, therefore till the virus is alive inside the body any time symptoms can occur, but majority of cases what we have seen is after the 120 days completion of medication symptoms seldom occurs and even if the symptoms occurs it will be very mild and will go away faster, so dont worry even if you get any symptoms during the course of medication. 
      Our aim is to cure the virus and not the symptoms, symptoms is just associated with the virus activity and after the 120 days medication the viral activity will be reduced and not fully stopped and that’s why you can get symptoms during the treatment, but this viral activity will be weak, and that’s why symptoms will be milder and will go away faster.  As the treatment progresses then the viral activity will further reduce and ultimately the virus will be dead. 
      About Medication: Medication will be in the tablet format which will be of 4 different variety to be taken after food. Generally non vegetarian food has to be reduced to the maximum while on treatment. Consume more of vegetarian food only for better and fast results.
