Yesterday I went to the gyn and she find some sores that thougth could be genital herpes. When she mentioned her diagnosis I felt like the world just felt in my body. Nevertheless, I have to wait 2 weeks to get the results I can not sleep, eat, I just keep cryin and crying. For me this is the most difficult experience I ever have gone through. I am married and had to told that to my husband and he told me that he has never had that disease. So I fell worst because, then I am the one who may have give that to him. I just need to read about other persons that are living with the disease.

I too am waiting for my results. My labs just came back okay, but awaiting my cultures. I can understand your anxiety. But I have decided that no matter what the results...whatever it is, I am going to be okay...and so are you. Think positively. Read the posts here and realize there are many that have learned to live a good and positive life despite herpes; and I pray so will both of us.

Wish you the very best.

Your life is far from over...this disease as awful as it may sound is becoming more and more common place. It is normal to have those feelings but you have to understand all that is, is the "social stigma" that is around the disease. Everyone perceives a person as "dirty" if they have an std. That is not the case I have a friend who was a virgin, and on her first encounter contracted the disease...I have lived with H (GHSV2) for four years, I have always been careful and I was never permiscuous. It could have been in your body for years and just never produced symptoms. You can have an amazing sex life with it. For the most part, with treatment you could reduce the amount of obs experienced. I thought I would never get over the fact that I have this, but I did and you will too. There are a lot of really good people on here and sooo much information on websites- it is unreal. You should check it out;) especially the statistics...they are crazy 1 out of 4 women and 1 out of 5 men have H.

Take care & remember people are here for you!;)

Inital outbreaks are the things that make herpes seem horrible and scary but fear not it gets better most people after a year don't even get symptoms anymore but it don't mean you can't pass it to others. Protection and any or all types of supressive therapy help in passing it and overcoming outbreaks if you have trouble with them.

Most people don't have any trouble with outbreaks after a year or so most cases. I mean unless you have a very unhealthy lifestyle. Those are the people that usually have trouble with outbreaks.

You will be fine have faith and hope. Take warm baths if your blisters really bother you powder works if there is itching when they heal. When they dry out aloe helps.

Any other we are all here to help big hugs to everyone and try to smile cause your not alone. Just remember 1 in 4 people have it.. next time your in the grocery store think of that.

      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.
