Hi everyone! I am new to the group but not to genital herpes. I have had it for 13 yrs now but am learning to just live my life. I am over the depression stage, but I still have issues with telling anyone. Only 2 people in my life know, well, besides the jerk who knowingly affected me. Just here to give support and receive support ☺

I think ITs Ok to have only 2 people know.

The only people you really have to tell if those you are going to have a sexual relationship with and if it makes you feel better not telling anyone that's entirely your choice.  I'm quite comfortable talking about it because it has helped me realise that I don't need to hide my dx and it's nothing to be ashamed of.  Welcome to the group.

      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
