In Cape Town and lost.


Recommended Posts

Hi .

I was recently diagnosed. I picked it up from my ex unknowingly and I've never had a symtom... Ever . however ofcoz it showed up in my tests after I finally opened my heart to someone who had complained that he wasn't feeling to good down there after the 1st time we decided to be intermate unprotected ... We were actually making plans for the future .

He was very supportive until today when he decided that I'm not what he wants no more . and he wants to work things out with his ex gf .


So basically I was dumped . and I can't react or stress about it as I've come to know that the antibodies lie within the nervous system. And I might get my 1st ob because of this .

What I have learnt is that " I love you" means nothing without any actions .

I'm not taking this very well .

Is there any support groups in cape town that anybody knows about ?

I'd really like to speak to people in the same boat as me .

Hi there, welcome to the website.

What were you diagnosed with, hsv1 or hsv2? The good news is, if you haven't had an outbreak already you probably never will have one.

Do you know what your numbers were? There is such a thing called a false positive. If your number was under 3.5 you might want to test again to verify. Here is a link to an article on transmission rates that talks about false positive tests:


Even if you do have herpes, you can live a normal life, millions of people do every day.

Is www.meetup.com big in South Africa? That is one area where most support groups go. The other is Facebook but most of the Herpster support groups there are secret and you can't find them by searching for them. I can get you in the main Facebook group and you can search around for the others from that group. Let me know if you are interested.

Welcome to the website and please believe you will be ok :)

You might want to call your doctor and inquire about the numbers. 90% of all adults have hsv1 so that is almost a given. If you haven't had a genital outbreak I would definitely inquire on the numbers.

      Hi guys, My name is Shelly. I'm 25 years old! I've had Herpes for 5 going on 6 years now. I'm just here hoping to learn more ways to deal with the situation and meet new people who actually know what I'm going through!  Thank you for reading! 💕

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.
