So we just found out that my wife has herpes, dont know what kind just yet. After so many classes that we had growing up, we still dont know how this is going to affect our relationship sexually and emotionall, and we are really in the dark with this. This has come as a shock to us, and never did we think that this could happen to us. I have yet to be tested since we just found out (going to the doctor tomorrow). Niether of us have been unfaithful in the six years of marriage, so we are unsure of who gave it to whom. Doctor said that there is a possibilty that one of us may have had it before and we are just finding out. We are both really emotional and we are just looking for some type of guidance and support. Thanks for your help.

It is good you are getting tested. You may already have it too, in which case neither of you needs to worry about transmission to the other. You are in a loving relationship. You will be fine. Neither of you has to worry about having the talk at any time in the future as long as you are together and you have a closed relationship. It is great that neither one of you is trying to assign blame. That puts you way ahead of the game in adjusting.

goddess8 is 100% right. If you are both positive, it shouldn't affect your relationship at all, especially if you do not have ob's, which is entirely possible. Many people are with h negative mates for years and years. Yes, you should get tested, because you will naturally want to know. You should also educate youself about herpes, and this is a great place to learn about the virus. The first thing you should realize is that this is just a vilrus, not a virilent disease which will dibilatate either of you. There are some things you may have to cope with, but nothing you can't handle. As long as there is love and caring you will just fine.

Hi Buzz, and welcome! I'm newly diagnosed as well, and will be updating my own story here in just a few minutes, as I finally have as much information as I'm going to get....at least for a while.

I am so happy you're supporting your wife right now. No doubt, she is devastated and feels "icky", not to mention that there will be a lot of grieving over the loss of "sexual health" and all the things we think we have when we are ignorant about H (meaning nothing negative....we were all in that place "before" and now we are all in a new place, having realized that H can strike in the most unexpected ways). Your wife just needs to know how much you love her right now. Everything else will come together in time, slowly.

Like you, I'm in a long-term monogamous relationship. We never expected this. But it will be ok. Keep hanging out here. Keep reading and getting educated. There is hope, and lots of it. You'll make friends here, and you'll find out how other couples cope.

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
