I just found out that I tested positive to both Herpes 1 and Herpes 2. I feel so alone because I can not confide in my family. My sexual partner does not want to committ to me, so we are currently not speaking. I need comfort and assurance.

hurt & scared

Of course you are hurt and scared poor thing. I know how you feel, we all do. I'm sure this is not something you ever guessed would be a concern in your life and it will take sometime to come to terms with the fact you have herpes. My boyfriend left a couple weeks after I was diagnoised, what a worm he was anyway; in retrospect I'm lucky he left. I chose not to tell my faimly or even close friends except for one my spiritual advisor. She said she knew of another woman with it who came throught the other side had since gotten in a loveing relationship and married. I knew the girl and she met with me and it was great to know I wasn't alone. BECAUSE WE ARE NOT ALONE! Believe that sista!! It is going to be okay. Hang out on this site for a while. Vent your brains out ...allow yourself to cry. This is by no means the end of the world. REALLY it isn't. I hope we can't chat soometime ...i have to go get ready to meet someone but here's an article I came accross today that I think is worth reading. Just so you know I'm hear for you. There are alot of great pepole here and we will help you get through learning and coping with this, okay hon? Much love to you! Here's the article link (you'll have to copy & paste I believe) Talk soon!!

Its ok "hugs"

Yeah everything will be fine usually after a few years you barely even can tell you have it cept when you get really sick it tends to act up. There is alot of stuff you can buy for it like Dynamiclear etc and there are generic versions available make sure they contain lysine however and are comparable to dynamiclear. When I stop being lazy I will look the generic website up cause someone posted it I forgot to write it down..

If it makes you feel any better my girlfriend had herpes and I do not and we have a healthy relationship and I plan to pleasure her like it wasn't a issue and if I get it then I do. Your not alone 1 in 4 people have herpes of some kind best thing to do is do tons of research.

If you want to talk my contact info is in my profile I am on pretty much always when im not sleeping or working. ;)

As I said though herpes is like the least of the worse std's I mean it seems like it is at first especially when you feel that burning itching that some people get when they get a inital outbreak.

It gets better and in most cases even if you don't diet your immune system takes over but if you have trouble lysine for the win.

      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.
