New Scared N Shocked


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, glad I found somewhere to talk about this.

I was diagnosed with Genital Herpes today and I can't seem to grasp it all.

Ive been with my Fiance for over 3 years and when I told him, he was so supportive...he's the only one I indend on telling...well for now anyways.

I was given a prescription to Valtrex today too. Anyone have any comments on that? Good bad? Meh?

I'm happy to hear your fiance is so supportive. Being there for each other is going to make this so much easier for you both.

It is shocking and scary when you first hear the news. It would be good for you both to read as much as you can about hsv and self care.

On the right side of this forum page there are a lot of great links that give info on suppliments and things to avoid that can trigger an OB...etc.

Take care of yourself and welcome aboard.

has he been tested as well? he may have it, may have given it to you in fact. He should have herpes type specific blood work done and then you will know what you are dealing with in terms of if you both have it and what type.

      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
