shocked&sad

Hi all. I am newly diagnosed after being sexually assaulted by an aquaintance. I am 42 and cannot believe that after surviving HPV/cervical cancer at 25 and being so careful after all these years, that I have now ended up with HSV2 because of some @#* idea of excitement. I am devastated!!!!!!

Thanks for listening.

J:(

Hi there,

I'm so sorry to hear what happened to you! I hope you find some personal support to help you heal from this trauma. Your past experiences have proven that you are indeed a survivor.

Herpes is something you will quickly learn to manage. You'll find a wealth of information here in posts, and also in links that are located on the right side of this forum page.

Take care ;)

Hi Shocked and Sad! i am so sorry to hear that you were sexually assaulted, as a survior of a sexual assault myself I know how hurt, confused and angry one can be. If you ever want to talk about it I am here for you. I was diagnosed yesterday (Not stemming from my assault) and have been trying to figure this whole thing out myself. But to me if you can beat Cancer you can beat anything you are a proven survivor. I wish you well and know that you are not alone!

      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
