Just got diagnosed with HSV-2.

Been with my partner for a few months.

After suffering a few days with a lot of discomfort and sleepless nights i decided to go to the doctor and was diagnosed straight away. My partner was unaware that he was carrying it. In a lot of shock today, keep crying and then trying to see the positive sides.

Very frustrated today, but it is nice to find a website that has so much information on it!

Haha I googled myself silly before being diagnosed, so my diagnosis is better than some of the google results I found!

He has been at work all day and I called him to tell him and he feels terrible as we were both unaware, he feels more upset that i am the one that is going through the out break and is blaming himself for it. But will see him after work and discuss it all properly. It's all just really hard to take in at the moment. I'm very much going through stages of feeling like i can cope and then just sheer panic. I think the pain and discomfort is making it A LOT harder to deal with and take in as I just want my head to feel clearer but im very feverish and headachey. Hope you are doing okay Jdk1580, and you are right it's very nice to have a place to discuss it with other people.

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
