Newly diagnosed

Recommended Posts

Pinkdaisy

Last Thursday, I was diagnosed with genital herpes. Well the PA examined me and was pretty sure I had it. The swab results will be coming the end of next week. I am confused as to how I got it. My boyfriend is being tested and was pretty adament it was not him. He has been the only person I have been with since my divorce. I was married for 20 years and with him for close to 30 years.

i thought my breakout was a skin irritation due to soap or laundry detergent. Then I thought it was vaginitis. When nothing was working for me I decided to see for myself what was going on and in shock headed straight to the clinic where I was swabbed, and the PA was pretty sure it was a case of newly diagnosed herpes. I have been taking the antiviral medication but am feeling lots of pain when I walk and am very fatigued with chills and nadeau. My partner shows no signs but will be getting a blood test to see if he may have it. I am struggling because he seems very distant now and I need support. He says he is going to stand by me but his actions are telling me otherwise. He is now realizing he may have had it and showed no signs but I also realize that I could of had it all along and just now had a breakout??? I am so confused how this happened. I was reading  aggressive  sex could do it?? Happy to  come across this support group. Feeling very embarrassed,  sore snd alone!

Its possible either of you have had it and not known.  It happens.  Generally stress or something impacting the immune system can cause an ob.  If your partner gets tested and its positive then unless you were both tested prior its hard to know who had it first.  Make sure its typed so u know if its 1 or 2. Dont be embarrassed its just cold sores.

If he has no visible symptoms or sores, then he cannot get swabbed, and can only get blood tested. In that case, if he comes back positive, then its more likely that he has had it for a while and was simply asymptomatic, which is somewhat common. Many people don't know that they've contracted it and never show any signs. They say that it can take 2-3 months for the antibodies to show up in the blood test. So for example, if you got the blood test, it may or may not come back positive for you at this very moment, if indeed the virus is new for you.

It does sound like its new for you, rather than you having it for a while. When I first contracted it, I had fever-like symptoms for 1-2 weeks: chills, sick in bed, cold sweats. A few weeks after that: my first outbreak.

Eight four that's exactly how I am feeling. Hopefully this will clear up soon with the meds. Thank you for your response.

      @DJwah curious about your results. anything you can share?

      Thanks. Did you experience general discomfort when urinating for quite a while after the excruciating part was done, or was it instantly over after the week with antivirals?

      Thanks for the response.  I have been tested for HSV over and over for 5 months (IgM 1 time and IgG over 5 times) and been negative on everything, including a swab of a red rash and of an irritated urethral opening.  My very first symptom of anything was VERY painful urination that lasted about a day or two if I recall, followed a week or so later by a sore throat, chills, night sweats, and fatigue.  Things settled for maybe a few days, then came an extremely itchy anus/rectum with redness for weeks, itchy groin with no redness at all, then eventual red, itchy rash in groin and increase in redness on penile skin with mild itching. Never had a lesion or blister anywhere from what I've seen. Nothing seems to coincide with typical herpes, but herpes isn't always typical from what I've learned. Creams of all kinds from doctors are not helping at all.  I seem to have a new bug no one has ever come across (doubtful), or an atypical case of herpes or something similar.

      No, Sebi was a fraud. This article is an interesting summary. https://www.thebody.com/article/dr-sebi-did-not-cure-hiv-nipsey-hussle-documentary If you’re basing the possibility of ‘cures’ on Sebi, I’ve got a car for sale that’s had one careful lady driver! Its simply fact that of the 40 billion people who have ever had HSV 1/2, not one eradicated it from their body.

      I'm amazed people do not think outside the box and to go to great efforts to reply to me saying "it's not curable" I simply cannot understand. If you truly believe Western Medicine and they say it's not curable then whatever they claim in the future you will live your life with their scientific proof. I simply have posted here to hear from like minded people who are juicing and doing colonics to see what their results are. People who have had cancer have cured it with a alternative lifestyle becoming vegan etc so if cancer is cureable who can't you open your mind and just think could hsv be curable? did you know Dr Sebi was taken to court because he claimed he cured someone with Aids? He turned up with 25 people who he cured of all illnesses and was let off. So please spare me your thought's of "It's not curable" as I will never belive that. Unless you have some experiences with juicing and colonics you wish to share then do not comment on this thread. Will no longer reply to closed minded sad people like yourselves.
