I was diagnosed 3 days ago with HSV2. I'm going into my senior year of high school in August and I'm lost. I feel like I can't continue my friendships with the close friends I have now because if I tell them they will be appalled and never want to see or hang around me again in fear they will get it because of their lack of education. Basically I just really need someone to talk to who knows what I'm going through and can relate. I'm looking for a friend and someone To be there for me

@Skye249 I've read both. I think what it comes down to is nothing is definitive with this virus. It just depends on the individual. If you are + the best you can do is manage your outbreaks, disclose, use protection, and perhaps suppressive therapy. And hope for a cure/vaccine in the near future.

They don't need to be made aware of your personal, intimate situation period.

I'm going to give you some advice; find a friend from a support site or get in therapy...do not tell your high school friends. People are ignorant and a lot of high school girls are immature. They could spread rumors and you don't need that right now! If I were you and was diagnosed at your age I would find a great therapist, work on myself and just have fun! I wouldn't worry about dating or sex at all. There are things that will be made available while you're still young that will hopefully make this a non factor!

I agree with Whyyyy.  I would find a trusted therapist.  I wouldnt even tell family if it were me.  Or find someone like whyyy or monique on here to text.

      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%...
