New here, and just been diagnosed..


Recommended Posts


i was just told on wednesday (4/25/07), that I have herpes simplex 2. I am in shock, but now that's it's saturday, and from putting my body through so much stress over wondering (wtf am i gonna do now)! i'm just gonna live and deal with it. ain't nothing else i can do. i know i can't change the fact that i have it, but at least now i know i can chose to be more careful (and feel that i have to be, now that i have herpes) with whom i have sex with. well i don't know what else to say, but i'm going to read threads and post.

I too just got diagnosed on wednesday....The hardest thing i've had to deal with. I just wonder how much harder the whole dating scene will be its not like it's easy out there, now one more thing to think about when meeting people. I also think about my family and how i must be really clean and safe around them...i would hate to expose any of them.

I agree we must accept and try to cope and i do find that slowly it will get better, it has to!!!

Stay positive with the good things in our lives and this too shall pass!!!

Good Luck!!

I was diagnosed 2/28 with hsv2. So I feel everything that you are going through. Since then, I have had 2 major outbreaks and have felt horrible most of the time. Finally, the feelings of fatigue are going away as well as the OB (I hope!).

I took the news really hard but knew I couldn't let myself get depressed about it. I quickly joined positivesingles.com and mpwh.net and started talking with others who are in The Club! There's also a few yahoo groups out there for those of us in the Club! Through all of these sites, I met a some other women and men. It's been great to be able to actually talk to others in person, who have the same thing that we do! In the process, I've become friends with a few of them and I am so grateful.

Believe it or not, but at least in Ohio, there are events almost every month for ppl to attend to meet others with H. So use the internet as your resource and be positive.

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
