the new girl

still beautiful

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm newly diagnosed. I haven't got the results yet, but I know the signs and symptoms and I've got it. It all started last week. The hard part is out the way, but some symptoms are still there. I never thought this would happen to me, but it did and now I have to cope. I pray the outbreaks aren't as bad as this week. Sorry, my thoughts are all over the place, so many things going through my mind. I feel ugly and dirty now, but I have to realize that this can happened to anyone and I'm sill beautiful.

Thanks for being here for me.

It gets eaiser

I was 28 when I had my first outbreak and remember thinking life was over. That was twenty four years ago. They do get less frequent and sometimes not even noticable. I am new here to but I imagine if you look around in this forum you will find many others feeling just as you do and many with good advice as to how to move on with life. That is what I am hoping for.

Love and light

i am 44 years old and recently diagnosed (blood test) this past April. my one and only ob was so painful, worse than delivering and recovering from my four pregnancies. it is only may, and i still feel like my life, as i knew it anyway, is over. i am afraid to even speak to men, let alone think about dating, because then i will have to tell them about this and i am and will be totally ashamed and embarrased. i know that someday, i will meet somebody who will love me an want to be with me regardless, but the fear of finding that person is killing me.

I totally understand the whole thing about not wanting to date or have that fear of when you get to that part of the relationship where you have to tell them. I think before you get out there and date again you have to love you for who you are. You didn't change- your body did. You have to fix what's on the inside before you go out. Yesterday I felt I will never get married or have kids. I'll grow old and alone. I haven't got my test results back yet, I have to wait a week and half longer. This morning I woke up with a new attitude. I am a child of God and he performs miracles. Although I may have had symptoms, I am praying that all tests come back neg and I never have symptoms again. I know this sounds far fetched to you, put I believe in the Lord and maybe I'll be able to tell you about one of his miracles first hand.

      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.
