Was diagnosed about 6 months ago. Have never been more depressed in my life. But here is the good thing it only lasted 4 Days! yup that's right & this goes to prove stigma is the HARDEST PART ABOUT DEALING WITH HERPES! I was so angry I had always been strong thinking suicide was for weak people *silly of me* because suicide was all I could think of within these 4days. I had then went on a social site where I read a bunch of positive comments about herpes. I began to get a little more confidence. I hated the fact that everyone would say " someone will love you " " anyone worth your time will stick with you " in the back of my head all I thought was yeah I bet it would be all the guys I'm not into! During the 5th day I thought to myself? Why not just tell him? ( the guy I was involved with prior to getting diagnosed. After sending a long detailed paragraph I was shock to his response " This changes nothing" ! He does not have it and is accepting of me having it. There is hope guys !!! Trust in God ! Stigma is the only terrible part about this, I don't even know why it's called an STD & not JUST A SKIN CONDITION oh and another thing. IF YOU HAVE SEX THERE IS NO 100% way to prevent this other than getting proof of every partners status! They do not test you for it routinely and it goes thru condoms. Come on guys go easy

      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
