Disclosure story


Recommended Posts

So I have been reading this web site for a couple of years, but never registered before today. I was in a relationship with someone who also had the herp for several years but that ended and then I went on a dating site for positive people and dated several people off of that over the first year I was single, but the pool was definitely limited and as more time passed I really felt like I was limiting myself. Anyway I went on to a "normal" dating site and I connected with a woman and she seemed great, so fast forward we went on our first date and we totally hit it off and I completely forgot about my herp and was 100% myself, and then she asked me to walk her home and then she asked me to come up to her place and the next thing I know we're getting pretty hot and heavy, now I had never been in this position before but I had read a lot on this site, and others, about the best way to disclose and everything I had read had said do NOT do it in the heat of the moment, but I did not want to go any further without being honest, so I grabbed her hands (so she'd stop going down my pants) and said "hey I've got to tell you something" and she said okay what is it? And then I said something like "Do you get cold sores? Well, a couple of years ago I found out i have the virus that causes them" and she said "Oral?" and I said "No down below" and she was like "Okay well I dont have it but lots of people do" and that was it. I spent the night. We didnt have sex but we came awfully close and I am sure we will be seeing each other again. Maybe I just got lucky my first time, but I have to say that I have been agonizing over disclosing for years (I stayed in that other relationship longer than I should have because of that fear) and now that I finally did it I am not only relieved but filled with hope. Again I may have gotten lucky with this woman, but I do think my honesty and how comfortable I was with myself all night played a role in her reaction. Just thought I'd share it with you guys here.

Mature, totally mature is the key thing that comes to mind. Both from you in terms of your forthright honesty and in her reaction. You found a real understanding woman, good on you.

Do you know your type, that's pretty important to the flow of these types of dialogue.

Thanks Wilso. I have type2. I have basically been a-symtomatic for the last year (not even any pro-drome). Ive changed my diet quite a bit and take daily suppressives.

Thanks Shels. It's (very) early days, but it feels damn good to have broken my "disclosure cherry" and put myself out there.

I'll actually be in New York next week for work, but it may seem weird if I join you guys for the talk ;).


Seems like you have a guy that really likes you already. You may be surprised by how he reacts.

Hahaha imagine that like a disclosure mediator  I appreciate the gesture tho I'll just wait on it and take it slow and hopefully once it gets serious and we form a lot of trust then like you I'll pop another disclosure cherry I just don't want to disclose until I know for sure its serious

      How do I post pic on hear 
    • WilsoInAus
      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!
