I'm new to all of this.

Hello, Everyone!

I was diagnosed with HSV2 about a month ago.  I must say that I'm happy to see a lot of positivity on here.  I'm ready to deal with this and live a healthy fun filled life.  H popped up without any warning.  I had a full outbreak then my partner had one shortly after I did.   My partner and I can't figure out who brought it into our relationship.  I guess at this point, it doesn't matter because it is here now and we have to deal with it.  I'm just happy that I'm not alone in this.  It just bums me out that this is something that NOBODY talks about.  I feel comfort in knowing that I can be a part of this community.  :-)

It has been a process.  It hit me very, very, hard.  The first few weeks were awful emotionally.  I just realized that I can't and don't want to be an emotional mess anymore.  At the end of the day, my OB wasn't that bad, and it didn't interfere with my life.

That's the turning point! I was very sad for a few weeks at the beginning, but once I decided I didn't want to spend my life feeling bad about something that actually didn't affect me that much, everything got better. In time you will feel better. :) This community is great!

Hey LoveToDance welcome sweety. I've had Ghsv 2 for almost 30 years and I'm married to a non h man, we also have a daughter. You and your partner need NOT worry who gave what to whom since 80% carry some form of herpes but just don't know they have it since standardized testing for STD' s don't include test for herpes. You are NOT alone so feel free to ask anything and express whatever you are feeling here. Everyone here fully understands what you and your partner are dealing with. I'm happy you found us and once again welcome sweetypie. Hugs Aces xo

      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.
