Hi! I am 25 and I have known about my status for 7 months now. I am still dealing with it day by day it is hard to accept. I ended a 4 year relationship in Oct. and started dating a new guy who was a friend in nov. about a month after we had slept together I noticed symptoms I thought I had cut myself shaving but being a nurse I got paranoid and went to the doctor. Two days later I found out my culture was positive for HSV2. The guy I was seeing swore he didn't have anything he had never had symptoms and his ex of 3 years never said anything. I made him go get checked and yep his blood test was positive. I sunk into depression but since I still was with my guy it was not to bad because the only part of your life that this affects is dating so I had that covered. I later found out a bunch of things about my guy that weren't too nice. He turned mean and cold and the relationship was already hard because we lived 4 hours away from each other. I held on for 6 months even after I found out a girl had been calling him. Of course he denied it but then got mad at me for listening to his messages. He left me a month ago and I am having a rough time. He will not even talk to me and I feel so stuck and alone. I am starting to think that he knew all along. He just took the news so easy and now I think he is already seeing someone else. I am unable to move forward right now and I am scared to death of dating. I plan on telling the next intimate partner should there be one. I don't believe that my ex is doing the same he is probably lying to someone right now. He is in complete denial because he has never had symptoms. It makes me mad but what can I do about it.

I Love your screen name!!

goodgirlbadluck...Boy that's perfect!

You seem to have a lot going for you at a very young age!

I think once you can detox from the ex you will feel much better about your life.

You are young, and you have a great career! It's all good.

Hopefully you can take some time now to pamper yourself and begin to heal. You will start to feel better emotionally, and your world will look brighter.

It seems more important to work on You feeling good, Then to give your ex too much energy at this point.

You don't even have to worry about dating just yet, More importantly take care of you. The dating pool will be there when you are ready to jump back in!

Also, Please know You aren't alone! ;)

      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.

      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
