Hi I was diagnosed with hsv2 yesterday. I'm having my first ob now and it hurts soo bad! I can't get comfortable at all, the pain wakes me up at night! Im on acyclovir but doesn't seem to be helping my ob, it started 6 days ago. How long is this going to last? Will my vulva ever feel better? I can't go through life with this pain and burning. I kind of feel like this is the end of everything i used to know! How will i ever have a sex life again?

I'm sooo scared!:confused:

PixieDust,

I felt the same way did regarding having sex and I must say that I was intimate with my boyfriend about three weeks ago and it was wonderful. You will get better and feel better too. As a result, eventually you will become intimate again. I know you do not believe it now, but you will.

pixiedust it takes a couple of days for the Acyclovir to really kick in. For me I really started to notice improvement by day 5. Yeah that seems like an eternity today but it will happen.

Here are some suggestions that you may or may not have already tried.

Loose clothing, cotton undergarments that are not tight as well, epsom salt baths or baths using the Aveeno Active Natural bath powder for itching, Domeboro astringent compresses to heal the blisters quickly, drink lots of water, and maybe consider taking vitamin supplements designed to boost your immune system and impair the virus from replicating such as vitamins c,d,e, b complex, lysine, zinc.

There are lots of recommendations from other foum users for things that have helped them too.

how about these links?

I hope you feel better soon and it looks like you've got a good guy out there who really cares about you.

I Understand!

Hi Pixie. I got diagnosed Friday. I know how you feel. I have been in my house crying for days. I too feel like my life is over and hate that this is now my life. Hate! I guess in time we will adjust. I am seeking a therapist next week. As far as dating, I am devastated. I think I will join a local H singles group. I am in Atlanta and they look like a large group. Maybe you have on in your area. The thought of dating someone without it and having to tell them . . .not for me. I have heard of the rejection. And, can you blame them? If a man I was dating told me before my diagnosis I would have run too, I think. But, all that in time. I don't plan on dating for a while!

Pixie Dust and Agent Orange...

I wish the best to both of you. How wonderful you can be there for each other! You'll find many good people on this site. Sadly, not too many use the chat feature. I am a huge believer in therapy and support groups. I know right now you're probably feeling kind of like a leper, many of us did (or still do). You'll have your good days, and your bad ones. I'm 3 weeks in and this site has been an enormous form of support and information. And it has even given me the strength to out my self on AIM. Leave me a private message if you'd like to contact me. Hang in there, they say there iS life after herpes!

was that my voice?

Myself, I can't even begin to think about dating until I can wrap my head around owning this virus. It's mine now, I guess I own it, right? I kind of feel like my body was forclosed on and now someone else is living in it.

Last night I was talking to a friend and she asked me if I had heard from this man I had been talking to before I had gone on a trip in April. He and I had dated a few years ago and were back in touch, and planned on rekindling our relationship.

What I heard myself say, as if I was listening to someone elses voice, was.... I am in no possition to date right now. I have a disease and it's contagious. I'm nowhere near ready to tell that to someone!

So, like a chicken, when that man had called me a couple of times I just didn't return his call. It made me feel horrible. I wouldn't want to be rude or hurt his feelings. But I can't speak those words to a man I'm interested in yet. nooooooowaaaaaaayyyyyyyy.

That's why right now I'm hanging out with friends and family. I've only told my closest girlfriends. I have to have some support and I know they won't judge me.

I will say that I do plan to date again at some point. I love having a partner and I want someone to share my life with and a playmate. I'm 48 years old and I don't want to be alone forever. And I have to say...deep down inside I don't think I'll be alone forever. I'm with you Jennifer, Maybe I'll do the H-date thing when I'm ready too.

      To give some context I hve been suffering with this for the last 6/7 years this came about after I had varicella zoster on the inside of my body a week after I started getting clusters of spots on the top of my buttock they are not painful as such can be itchy at times but majority of the time I don’t feel it when I have an outbreak. I’ve been to various doctors who say it’s a fungal skin infection or a bacterial skin infection. I’ve asked if it’s herpes but they will say it’s not without even testing it.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      @WilsoInAus could you kindly have a look :) also how long does it typically take for herpes blisters to develop into sores

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us
