Millions of people have herpes. Are their lives over? Do they have relationships?

Jennifer,

We sound like we are in the EXACT same situation, unfortunately.  I'm in healthcare, divorced, started dating again, trusted the wrong person, then met the right person before I knew and now had to tell him.  It's been effin horrible, I haven't stopped crying, I'm kicking myself.

I told the new guy this past weekend, and he's been extremely cool and level headed about it.  He's getting tested today, and god-willing he's negative.  He hasn't had any symptoms whatsoever.  I know deep down that we won't be together anymore, but it is what it is.  I'm trying to think of what I would do in his position, can't say I blame him.  Heartbroken, but it is what it is.  No magic bullet for this one.  

Maybe you and I can help each other?

Just because he shows up negative, doesn't mean he doesn't have it. When I first got it, I got tested and it came back negative. I was having an outbreak during this time too. 

I ended up getting blood work done last year, and it showed up positive. My initial test that came up negative was in June of 2014.

And if he does come up positive, it doesn't mean that you gave it to him. Unless you know for a fact that you did. So many people have hsv1 or 2 and don't realize it. From what I heard, when people get tested for STDs, they don't check for herpes unless you ask. I could be wrong. This link has information.

Yep I know. He hasn’t tested negative yet. And yes there is a possibility that he was already positive. However, I’m praying for his sake that he’s negative, regardless of who gave it to who, I wouldn’t want this for him or for anyone. 

And you are also correct that they don’t test for HSV in a standard issue STD lab work. 

Again my hope is that he’s negative for his sake. No pointing fingers, just only want the best for him. That ship has sailed for me, unfortunately.

I’m going through some relationship issues also. I was diagnosed over 2 years ago. I wasn’t dating anyone at the time I got my first outbreak. But I was dating someone about 3 months prior. So who knows if he gave it to me or if I already had the virus?  I had 3 minor breakouts before I got on acyclovir and I also take lysine. I haven’t had an outbreak since. Ive been in a relationship for a year now and I never told him I was positive. But since I was proactive about taking my meds and showing no symptoms I just kept it my secret. Well my b/f got sick with the flu and came down with the virus in Jan. He just told me the other night. I was mortified and full of anxiety because I had to tell him the truth. He took it better than I thought but our relationship may be over. I feel terrible and never wanted this to happen. So hard to talk about it!

Hello Jennifer how are you feeling? I am from Las Vegas I recently had an outbreak And Got tested yesterday waiting for My results this is like living hell on earth. but I have done tons of research and there is so much natural medicine that can help you suppress the virus. as you know this is not curable or at least what they all say but I am a man of faith and I trust the Lord. There is a topical almost like vaseline that helps with the discomfort but at the same time it helps with the outbreak I found out it was good for me I bought it at Amazon is $25 the name of the product is below. Hope this helps along with a good diet And rest. Take Lysin 1000mg. and go to the Doctor. If you need someone to chat I am here. Life is not over is Just a new beginning.

      As I understand it, if you take it several times it will be different each time.  Its the way the tests works.  Mine were back and forth within that range.  If I take it again  I could be higher or lower but I will be in the positive range.

      That's interesting. When you say it was between those numbers, do you mean it climbed slowly, or went back and forth? I'm curious because I had a second test and it came back lower than the first one. It went from 1.60 to 1.21 after 7 weeks.

      The numbers don't really mean much except whether positive or negative.  Ive had 4 tests within the last 18 months and all were between 1.3 and 1.6 for hsv1. Sometimes the low numbers can be false positive for hsv2 but false positives are less frequent on hsv1.  Im like you.  Im assuming I became positive in my early childhood as I've never had a breakout.  I do think your body gets better at managing the virus as you get older.  Ive even heard of some people seroconverting to a negative result on the test but they still have the virus.
