Gtb baddream

2 random encounters in March. A steady boyfriend from April till now and I have hsv 2. Everything says initial outbreak will happen 2-10 days after infected. Nope. 8 months these little virus bastards hung out. Monday I noticed something ain't right- got to the dr on Wednesday who started me in valtrex 2x a day for 10 days. My bf hasn't gotten tested yet but just "knows" he doesn't have it. Hell- this time last week I KNEW I didn't have it. 

I called the 2 other guys to ask. 1 informed me he may but he doesn't think so. Which is guy talk for yea. 

My boyfriend. Older guy. European. Totally laid back and supportive AF. Really just says. Ok. I'll get tested and we will figure it out from there. 

Hardest part of this. Other than feeling like my identity has shifted forever ( oh and the whole messsss going on down there)... is fear. Fear that only hours of research and education will bring. I have sooooo many questions. I don't want subjective opinions and articles online. I'd like real people. So. As I lay here while the baking soda I have applied to my bits and pieces makes me want to scream louder than childbirth... is there anyone out there who has enough experience to help a young terrified single mother with a boyfriend and the stupidest questions imaginable??

Did you get a blood test?  You could have gotten it from your be just now. It sounds like no one has any confirmation at this point.


Did you have bumps or primary outbreak symptoms?

      I’m a woman with HSV-2 in my vaginal area. I’ve never had symptoms orally & was diagnosed from swabs from my vaginal area.
      i gave the woman I’ve been dating for the past 3 weeks oral sex a few days ago, and had “the talk” with her after. She was ok and said we could figure out how to protect her from getting it. Now she’s  having cold symptoms that are getting progressively worse, similar to what I had when I had my first outbreak. I’m very afraid now that I may have HSV2 orally & I just didn’t know I had it & gave it to her. 
      What should I do?? She’s  going to feel like I lied to them. 😩

      i was diagnosed in 2016. contracted HSV-1 genitally from my then (now ex) boyfriend.
      im brand new to this site. been having a really hard time lately. outbreaks have been getting more frequent. rarely had them.. now currently going through the 3rd OB in 4 months. every time i think about it i’m immediately upset. it’s debilitating physically and mentally
      i regret my choices that led me to this every single day. it never leaves my mind. especially when i have an active OB.
      any and all suggestions for preventing OBs... foods/things to avoid.  i never had to worry about this til lately. hate being depressed all the time. it sucks a lot

      So I was recently just diagnosed with HSV- 2 , 26 years of age, no signs of symptoms till a week ago. Taking VALTRAX, sores are slowly but surely healing and going away. My question is how have you handled this with your partner? I’ve been completely honest w/ her throughout this entire process, and she seems to be taking it in more roughly than I am. I’ve had the same partner for 2 1/2 years and no signs or symptoms have had ever occurred till now. My doctor said it could have been distress or poor immune system to trigger my flare up. 
      Sexually, what are tips that have helped you prevent these flare ups.
      New to this so, any advice would be great.
      Home remedies for further prevention?
