@Prettypony God me too. I'm hoping it's just the end of the outbreak (I surely haven't finished this first one!)
Mine was also confirmed as ghsv1 today.
I'm going to go home and shower and rest. I'm still taking 3000mgs of Lysine a day but was thinking to taper off as the symptoms subside.
I just went to my gynecologist today with horrible burning. Been going on for about 2 days. I did my own research and figured it was an allergic reaction or vulvodynia. I was shocked when my doc said she's pretty sure it's genital herpes. She took some swabs and will send to the lab.
I'm 45 years old. Have had two sexual partners in my entire life. My ex-husband of 20 years and my boyfriend of 3+years.
I'm a bit shocked. I need to tell my boyfriend tonight and am very worried. I just don't know how to bring it up. Did he know he had it? And I feel like our relationship will not be the same.
And of course, I want the pain to go away. It hurts a LOT. My gyn prescribed some medication but I don't know the name of it. Will pick it up after work.
Any advice for a newbie?
