more bad news for me

Recommended Posts

HI! I was diagnosed with Herpes about 4 years ago when I ended up in hospital with Viral Meningitis caused by an infected sore I didn't even know I had. To this day I am unsure who I caught it from. My GP put me on Valtrex but I am lucky not to have many outbreaks unless I am under a lot of stress. I have only been with a few guys since being diagnosed & have told all of them before sleeping with them. So here I was cruising along in life thinking I had a handle on everything when I had to see the doctor yesterday & I am told that I also now have Genital Warts! Christ almighty it was shock, not only do I have to live with Herpes now I have Warts on top of it! I had a total emotional breakdown in the carpark of the doctors surgery, I work away so I had no one to turn too & talk to about things & it brought up all the original emotions from when I was first diagnosed with Herpes. This is my first time in a forum like this & am glad it is here, reading other peoples stories helps me realise that I am not the only one dealing with this & there are people out there who understand what I am going through.

I'm so sorry you have to deal with this. I don't know much about genital warts but you have to remember that you are obviously a very strong person. You were able to deal with herpes and you will be able to deal with this as well. I don't know how much you know about genital warts but knowledge is power so do your research and you will be fine. My sister has hpv (which I think is genital warts) and she hasn't had any symptoms at all. Based on her experience it's definitely a manageable disease. I know you know that you have to go through the pain and devastation of this diagnosis but please remember that this too shall pass. You picked a really good place to vent because they're a lot of very knowledgeable people who who may be able to offer some advice. Keep your head up, just like you got through the pain of being diagnosed with herpes you'll get through this as well. Take care of yourself :)

      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
