Devestated in Georgia

Recommended Posts

lateinlifeforthis

Just went for yearly pap and got a big surprize. Genital wart was present and further blood work was done and have genital herpes also. been married since 2008. husband got caught (and lied) in a situation this past Christmas but my diagnosis tells the story. Could a person have it that long without infecting their partner???? He now claims that he thought he might have it (them both) but has never done anything about it.... Wreckless person. I am devestated. My Last pap was fine.

hey late, yes herpes can lie dormant for weeks, months, even years depending on the person/virus itself.

how did you get diagnosed? a blood test? culture swab of any infected lesions?

its true that many people dont even know they have this, because testing of herpes isnt in standard std panels.

some people may also be asymptomatic with herpes and never show any signs of an outbreak. (could be possibility for husband)

if you have any more questions feel free to ask :)

a blood test was done and the doctor said that i have been infected but the antibodies have not kicked in....something like tht.

i have another appt and will be able to talk at that point ...i was devestated to the point that i had no questions or anything...

so i am assuming she was telling me that i just had gotten it very recently...what do i need to expect next....an outbreak???

I was just tested today, waiting on results but im almost certain there is no hope for me.

i have never had any health issues or even an irregular pap before... ive been with the same boyfriend for a little over a year. neither of us have ever had a cold sore or any irregularities.

a few days ago i developed painful urination and i have little bothersome bumps... but they dont look like the pictures i have googled..

im freaking out trying to figure out if this mean i was cheated on, or what? i have no idea how to even go about having this conversation with my boyfriend.. who is sweet but young minded and very uneducated on this issue... as am i ..

were you prescribed anything? i was prescribed a cream and a medication for the next 10 days... i guess until the results are back =/

I think these are the ones that was under my skin I’ll stop touching them hopefully they’ll go away I’ve never had a blister/ spot on my lips or inside my mouth so i was just been curious if it’s on my face or so, thank you for advice tho lovely

      I would suggest you don t have to tell many people about it you have HSV ..May be you can tell people with whom you are in relationship now or any future partners ..telling anyone else will make unnecessary more worrying only ...

      Stop picking them or poping them and see does it goes away on its own ? i also get some of these on my forehead with white discharge sometimes ..but my poping them it spreads to more area of skin ..
