Soooo, I have this big job interview tomorrow, one I have to look cute for. One of those jobs where they need a head shot with your CV and OF COURSE I get my first cold sore the night before.

FUCK - and I dunno but I come to this site for help...for information but I don't know where to stop. I sit here and read stuff for hours and then I just worry myself more, worry that every WORSE case is going to happen to me.

I went to the doctor here and she was NO help because I didn't have any blisters. I explained that my boyfriend had it and showed her my mouth (HSV2 assumed, white rings on my tongue) and all she said was that she could not treat me unless there were blisters present.

Ever since I left him last (long distance) my vagina has NOT been happy. My mouth either...I don't know what the deal is, there are good days and bad days but it doesn't seem to "heal" or get completely better. We're going on about a month now....UGH. I'm not complaining if I don't get blisters I'll be more than happy.

I just...hate that I have to deal with this at all which I'm sure is the way most people feel. There just seems to be SOOO much to read, so much to be aware of, so much to do in order to stay healthy ect.

I just want to crawl up in bed and hide. I hate that I have to start a new job soon and will more than likely have a cold sore for it. :(:(:(:(

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
