It gets better


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 

When you first find out that you catch herpes, at face value it seems that your life is ruined. However it may be harder to start a relationship and open up to new potential partners, however, all you need is a strong mental attitude and don't let it ruin your life as it is far from over! Don't let this disease define who you are... 

I've been diagnosed with herpes for 2 years now and only yesterday I decided to tell my family and it was honestly the best thing I've done. They were so supportive and understanding (obviously disappointed) but I feel a lot closer to them now and they've insisted to help me whenever they can, eating right etc. 

Anyway, as said before it's not the end of the world, I bet your friends and family still treat you the same and there's a lot of people a lot worse off...

You've got the support of everyone on here, you're not alone and you WILL still be loved!


All the best guys x

I agree with you about telling others etc., but, excuse me, why is it so cool that they "still treat you the same"? It´s not like you´re a bloody danger, only people who fuck with you are concerned, not everyone around!

That came out wrong I didn't mean it like that, we're not a danger and we're perfectly normal, was I meant was there are worse things to have in life that can alter people's perception of you, that can be anything from your personality, to a crime you've committed etc

Maybe you will say what gets better in terms of symptoms, but you have to worry about not propagating it to another part of your body, if you want a couple you have to reveal it, in sex you have the fear of infecting your partner, the precaution of Use medicines to verify that they do not have symptoms or OBs, in the pregnancy of a woman the fear of transmitting it to her baby, the fear of losing the baby, and if the baby is born healthy take precautions not to transmit it in the stage of the first 5 Years because it can be fatal for the baby.

Tal vez dirás qué se pone mejor en cuestión de síntomas, pero tienes que preocuparte de no propagartelo a otra parte de tu cuerpo, si quieres una pareja tienes que revelarlo, en las relaciones sexuales tienes el miedo de contagiar a tu pareja, la precaución de usar medicamentos verificar que no tenga  sintomas o OBs, en el embarazo de una mujer el miedo de trasmitirlo a su bebé, el miedo de perder al bebé, y si nace sano el bebé tener las precauciones de no trasmitirlo en la etapa de los primero 5 años por que puede ser fatal para el bebé.,

      Good morning. My name is Marlena and I come from Poland. Sorry, my English is average. For two years I have been in a relationship with a man, for a year and a half I have been struggling with intimate problems. On average, my intimate condition is getting worse every month. Then I feel itching, redness, swelling around the entrance to the vagina, small blisters (not always). Most often it is only red and swollen, itches and then disappears. This state lasts 3-4 days. I come from a small town, doctors don't know what it is. They say it's 'skin irritation'. They prescribe moisturizing creams with lactic acid, probiotics. It doesn't help. I did a blood test for HSV on my own, which is very expensive in Poland, but it does not separate HSV1 from HSV2. The doctor, when he shows these results, says that it's not herpes, but irritation. I would like to add that in the past I suffered from herpes on the lips, then it was a 'scab'. There has never been a scab in an intimate area. Sometimes there are blisters that last 1-2 days, but not always. So what do high blood test results mean? I would like to add that in Poland people do not talk about the HSV virus. It's just that sometimes someone has it on their lips and that's it. Results translation: IgM HSV 1/2: questionable IgG HSV 1/2: result above the measuring range https://files.fm/f/4cpu7uee4

      This is my first time posting here. Im generally pretty anxious when it comes to anything to do with health conditions etc. For context I have had jock itch and fungal infections previously on my buttcrack. I have had 0 new sexual partners and I am not concerned about my girlfriend cheating at all. 4 days ago my balls began itching and red pretty much all over, as you can see some general flakeyness and what looks to be a lesion I noticed on Monday when I checked them out. My partner and I do get cold sores from time to time so the anxious part of me is concerned this could be herpes, but at the same time could be some sort of fungal infection. My doctor cant see me until tomorrow so I just have to worry until then. There is no pain and nothing on the penis or anywhere else, just general itchiness. Any ideas if this is herpes or not?

      Yes, but every married person who I found out about that has this waited 6-8 months into the relationship to disclose it. But maybe you're right. If I had told her 6-7 months in, she'd still have Googled it and flipped out, and maybe it would have been harder then. I don't know. I don't see myself going through this level of pain and rejection so easily next time. I really don't. I'm taking the meds. I use protection. It's been almost a decade since I've had it so I'm not worried about shedding or passing it on so easily. British studies confirm that the first 2 years are the most contagious and we're passed that. I'm just over this. I've never been in so much emotional pain in my life.
