Hello Everyone


Recommended Posts

This is my first posting ever on this site. I just wanted to get my feet wet a bit if you know what I mean. I have had HSV-2 for almost 25 years. Do'nt know which woman I got it from and itb doesn't really matter. Over the years I've dated too many women to mention but none have ever rejected me once I told them the truth. It's still hard for me to discuss with women when I meet them but it's impoprtant they know way beforeyou get them all fired up. They have the right to choose and I must be honest even though it makes me feel very uncomfortable. It's the right thing to do. I could be a lot worse so it's all about wrapping it up. I'm looking forward to postings on this site and I hope many things go well for all of us. I'm a good man and an even better human being...:D:p:eek::lol:FREE

Hope this helps someone

When I first contracted hsv-2, I was devestated. In fact I sort of zoned out after the nurse said the words you have herpes. She continued talking, but I now know I was in shock and didn't hear anything else she said. I use to get high and drink but I've been clean going on 20 years now. What I noticed was whenever I smoked pot I had 10 15 outbreaks a month. I would be healing in one area and breaking out in 3 or 4 other areas. Now I go years sometimes without an outbreak. I may get 2 a year if that now. I had a doctor that told me even though there was no cure, he was going to cure me. I use to go in and I'd be the only one in the room full of senior citizens getting a vitamin b-12 shot in the rear and I was getting some sort of IV that would drain from a liquid bag but I don't remember what it was. I think it was vitamin c. Everyone else in the room drainage would take 3-4 hours. I would be done in 30-45 minutes. They were all amazed with me and use to tease me everytime I showed up. It was all in good fun. Anyway I believed those shots and the liquid IV did help me. It took the VA six months sometimes to pay him and eventually they made me start seeing VA doctors. The doctor's name was F. Russell Manual, MD. I'm pretty sure he retired by now as this was the mid-80's when I saw him. I also now know I was depressed and felt dirty for years. There is not many days that go by that I don't think about it but like I said, no woman has ever rejected me for it but I certainly would understand it and not take it personal. That's what I would do. You take it personal if that helps you in anyway. We all have to deal with this in our own way. I have a prescription for valtrex and acyclovir. I only take one of them when I feel an outbreak coming on. One last thing even though I have fewer and fewer outbreaks, it seems like it takes them a lot longer to heal these days. I'm still tracking this as I haven't had enough outbreaks recently to say for sure. Imagine that, complaining that I haven't had enough herpes outbreaks. Believe me, one is enough. Stay safe. GTBMC:-D

      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.
