Hope I Didn't


Recommended Posts

I tried to post here a couple days back and finally got in. Yay! I'm feeling a lot less bummed than I was but still paranoid about symptoms etc.. Mine seem to have subsided so I thought I'd post my newbieness post now. LOL I'm deliberately trying to be funny because I'm just fed up with being upset, not to mention exhausted from the whole ordeal of finding out I've got HVS 2. At least I think that is what it is from the blood test. The doc said it was not a retroactive test so it couldn't be wrong. I've been having crying jags and not eating much for the past 5 days from this horrid thiiiiing I've got to live with forever and ever. No amen. :?

Ha ha, thanks for the humor?! I'm more worried about my family, or maybe they are more worried about catching something from me? I dunno, all I know is I'm trying to cope but really need more information. I have way too many questions now. It's a case of wanting all the info NOW or there's a bullet coming your way, kinda feeling I have.... not sure why, though. Heh, just mixed emotions all round. Relax??? LOL I couldn't if I tried. Too much anxiety with family over this to relax about it. They won't let me, or should I say the old man won't! How do you cope with other peoples perceptions of this, not to mention the fact that he thinks I was unfaithful to him? erm..... :(

well i dont really care what most people think of me, im not going to try and live up to anyones idea of what im supposed to be.

more info, the internet has A TON of info, best bet is to read more of the .edu/ .org/ .gov sites, like mayo clinic, and cdc, etc... get the basics, my doc recomended a book im not exact on the name but it was like 'the big book of herpes' once you get all the info u need, you will realize your fam wont get it unless they are trying to get it, real basic things people should be doing anyway> not sharing towels, washing your hands, etc etc. my sis used to go ape shit about using the toilet after me. so if i feel/think i might be having a outbreak i will just wipe the seat down w/ some lysol wipes, other wise, she can take the time to do it herself if shes that paranoid. we just keep the bottle in the bathroom anyway.

also, talk to the man, you have to let him know that there are ways to have this years with nothing, then one day a outbreak.

      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.

      May 13 ( day I will never forget).. a guy I was dating and I drank way to much and decided to have anal sex. We did use protection however, not enough lube, wasn’t done correctly and it was painful. So bad that I yelled out and fell off the bed. Anyway, oral was also performed on me anal and vaginal. Flash forward to 3-4 days after that. I was in the most intense pain I had ever felt. I went to a gyn she tool one look and said it looks like herpes. She swabbed me . 2 days after that, yes it’s HSV1 . I was still in pain, irritated anal area and vaginal area and It was unbearable.  today, I still have irritation and itchy and when I pass a bowel i’m in pain and the itch is crazy.     When I first was diagnoses the gyn gave me valtrex which I did not take bc I was in so much pain I could not move for 2 days.  Groin lymphs were swollen I had fever , tired etc.  I am wondering if I had taken the valtrex would it have kinda liked stopped the virus in it’s tracks enough to reproduce? Do people see a correlation between no more outbreaks and immediate initial valtrex  use ? I am 43, I never thought this wound happen as I am not a promiscuous person, I hardly date and I always use protection when I do have intercouse , have yearly std tests. I’m just so sad that i’m at this point right now . I’m trying not to get depressed but this is making my body feel miserable. I’m an avid runner and biker and mom of two teens. I feel like my life as I knew is over. I want to feel better already.
