I was diagnosed with HSV-2 early last night. Since then, I have been restless and the only thing I can think about is this. I have been dating the same person for almost 4 months, and have had no symptoms of anything until about a week ago. I informed him of what I had, and he told me he still loved me and it wouldn't change his views on me but I'm still so worried that my relationship will be over because he will be scared to ever do anything with me again. I'm going into my senior year of high school and looking for ways to cope, help prevent OB's, and someone to talk to who won't judge me. I want to feel normal again and not be sad or disappointed in myself.

Hey, sweet girl! I know how you're feeling! It's overwhelming for sure...Were you diagnosed via swab or blood test? The reason I ask is it could have come from your most recent partner.

If I were you I would go get blood tested (igg - is the name of the test) asap Bc if it comes out negative you can be pretty sure it was this current boyfriend that gave it to you. It takes the body a while to creature antibodies...

So typically positive swab & negative blood test= recent infection.

good news is there are some things coming in the next few years that should make this a non issue...while on one hand it sucks you have gotten this so young it's also a blessing because you'll be 20 when the gen-003 vaccine comes out! :)

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test.

      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
