Hi there! I posted in new here but I thought I’d post in newly diagnosed as well. It’s been really about 3 weeks I think?? I had a culture don’t in the office during an awful painful outbreak. I needed a script for Percocet because of the pain. I’ve always feared disease and STDs and I’m so upset over this. I was positive for hsv1 and negative for Hsv2. Any difference in the two and the breakouts? I had oral sex with a friends I’ve had since high school and I noticed the odd feeling 2 days later. It had to be him... bc no sex for awhile before that and have never had any problems previously. Of course when I try to discuss things with him he keeps ignoring me so he has no idea what I want to discuss I feel stupid and disgusting and pretty much like I will never find love now. I’m a nurse a loving caring person, I travel the world and I still have so much I want to do :(( I feel like I’m a way this is ruining it. Anyway they gave me Valtrex which I have one more day of.. and I’m scared that I won’t have it after that... like terrified. I have been taking daily zinc, lysine with garlic and echinacea, on top of my daily anti anxiety and anti depressants I’ve been on for years. I’m sick of pills but I really have no choice right now. I need some advice, some love, some comfort. I’m feeling vulnerable and just want to give up
Hi all I’m a 29 year old nurse. I recently found out I have hsv1 genital from oral sex. This was with a long time male friend. Who may or may not have know ... but he has ignored every message and call since this happened so he has no idea that he has given this t
my breakout is just clearing up from Valtrex. I feel gross I feel like my sec life and love life is over and it was something I enjoyed. I’m young I travel the world and I feel like now my chances of meeting the love of my life are over. I’ve been crying in and off even at work lately. Idk how to cope. Does anyone with hsv1 via genitals have advice.. I was so confused at first that hsv 2 came back negative because I thought hsv 2 was strictly genital and vice versa. Any advice, comfort or anything anyone could give me would be so appreciated, I’m very much alone and scared. Thank you ❤️
Around 3 years I go I contracted HSV2 from my now ex boyfriend.
At first it started off as a small tear..straight after sex. I assumed it was just due to the Brazilian wax I had gotten earlier that day. (I now know that that is probably what aided in me contracting HSV2) the next day, the year turned into a blister, then more appeared in the coming days. It was horrible. I had a funny colour discharge and it burned. I would sit in the bath just to pee. I went to a sexual health clinic in london where they took swans and examined me. They gave me meds to take and told me that it did indeed look like herpes. But that I should wait for my results to come back,and take meds in the mean time.
I got a call a few days later saying that I tested postive. I asked her if it was for HSV1 or HSV2.. as I had done a lot of research by then to know the distinct difference. She confirmed that it was HSV2.. to this day I have not had a blood test. As swans are usually most accurate at detecting HSV.
at first I was in denial. I didn’t get out breaks that often luckily.. and if I did it was just a. Small blister on my labia to the right of my clitorous. I would occasionally get some nerve tingling in my legs which I put down to asymtomatic shedding. I have never been on antivirals as my symptoms were barely noticeable
I started dating someone a year later and I told them about my HSV2. He took about an hour to read up on it.. and never mentioned it again. We carried on our relationship. I never took antivirals and we did not ever use condoms. To this day he has not contracted HSV. For a long time I somehow managed to forget that i had this horrible disease. I lived normally and happily..outbreaks were barely even noticeable. I guess this is because I had no reason to think about it. He treated me no different. Sadly our relationship has ended, however we are still friends. He has never ever mentioned my HSV to me since the day I told him.
But now 3 years on I am dating a new guy that I really really care about. I see us getting married and having kids.
Buy one day We were talking about his sexual partners and he informed me that he always uses protection as he has had a herpes scare in the past and that it was the worst time of his life. Luckily he tested negative.
Because of this I don’t know if he will ever accept me. And I am heartbroken. I cry all the time and am very very depressed...to the point of thinking about suicide. I don’t want to live my life like this. I look at females and envy them for being normal and for being able to have such carefree sex, never having to worry about this.
Even if this guy isn’t the one for me. I wonder if I will ever be able to find someone without feeling like this.
This world is cruel. And evil. And unfair. I don’t deserve this and neither do any of us. Life sucks
im pretty sure these companies have a cure but are feeding us useless antivirals in order to make money. Our lives mean nothing to them. We mean nothing To them.
emotionally I a ruined. I don’t see my body the same. And I hate my vagina.
The thought of having to take pills for the rest of my life just because of my stupid ex boyfriend tears my heart apart. Why me? I was good.. Now I am tainted and undesirable.
I’ve been looking online for natural remedies/cures. Although I’m not gullible enough to believe in paying money for a natural cure.
I’m in going to try Dr Sebi’s cell food diet. They say it is an intracellular cleanse that can rid the body of any disease. But it is a lifestyle..not a quick fix. I do believe he was really onto something.. that’s why they killed him in custody. He proved in court that he had cured people of HIV AIDS, blindness, herpes and other illnesses. He brought 77 paitients to court with him to prove this.
I’ve also read scientific research stating that oregano oil is very affective at killing the herpes virus.
the trouble is getting it to the virus in our nerve cells in the ganglion.
I understand why pharmaceutical companies would not promote this method of self healing as it does not benefit them.
But I am also aware that there are no people in this forum that have been able to sucessfullu rid themselves of the virus. And even if the tests do come back negative and outbreaks stop... the virus could still be in there hiding.
But im trying to save my life. So I am willing to try.
This is long. And if you’ve made it to the end.. congrats.
This may be the last post I make. As if this doesn’t work. I can’t stay on this earth living with the pain of what could have been if I had not been with one person.
This week my pregnancy ended after an ultrasound showed no heartbeat at 8.5 weeks. I had an outbreak just the week before. Naturally I believe that this caused my miscarriage. Everything was progressing perfectly up until that point. This is now my 5th loss and with every miscarriage I had an outbreak within days before. I can’t help but think that this is the underlying cause of it all. All of my doctors have said that the likelihood of the HSV being connected to my losses is rare. But I have also read mixed things online and feel like the medical community is generally uninformed when it comes to this.
Can anyone share their experiences with this? It would really help me to hear any stories of successful pregnancies with outbreaks in the first trimester ... or alternatively stories like mine.
Approximately 5 years ago a girl gave me a peck on the lips, I wiped my lips off.
The next morning I woke up with a painful rash all over my top lip that dried up and resulted in chapped lips, where the skin died and regenerated. No pus or obvious cold sore.
I have had this same outbreak approximately once a year in the same place except for this year where I have had it almost continuously, I have been very stressed.
I went to the doctor who says it isn't cold sores (I have to wait 2 weeks for a blood test), however I have found someone ( To those with oral HSV2 only by Penumbra,) who tested positive for HSV2 by blood test with my EXACT symptoms.
Before an outbreak, my lip/nose area is tingling a lot and I feel a strong twitching in my lip.
Is it possible that I have mild cold sores?
I would greatly appreciate any help
