Hi. I just recently got diagnosed a week ago with this virus. (That’s how I like to look at it) I’m not sure what type, I just remember the lady saying on the phone something about inactive. I’m not sure what that means but I’m so confused to this. I’ve been doing a little research but I’m just so scared, confused and emotional. My mind is going in circles! I feel so stupid and dumb. I just don’t know what to do. I just told the person I’ve been sleeping with for the past few months about it and it’s making me even feel more like sh**! I haven’t told anyone besides him. I’m even embarrassed to tell my mom & I can tell her anything! I’m trying to stay positive but it’s hard!
Hello people well let me start by saying I've suspected that I've had HSV for years now me and my wife. But I've been to afraid to come to her with it. She's had fever blisters as she calls them and she gets huge painful bumps and clusters of blisters at the top of her butt crack and she has major irritation down there often. Which makes me believe we have it. I dont usually get anything but itching and as of lately I have irritation inside my penis and on the head but never had an outbreak.
Well I had an encounter with a sex worker I used a condom but for some reason she decided to put lotion on the condom I only received oral from her no sex. After doing some research I found out that can damage condoms. But it didn't tear. But I've been feeling very irritated down there like I described earlier.
Is it possible to be re-infected with a different type of HSV or do you guys think that it is something else going on?
I've been so depressed lately and having major anxiety. I want to get checked so bad but I'm afraid she will accuse me of infecting her. Also I just want relief I've bought acyclovir online and have been taking them for a day now hoping to make the irritation go away. My friends says it's all in my head. I've been tested for most STDs and all negative.
Need some advice
I don’t even know where to begin. But I had unprotected sex with somebody which all his test came back negative today. (Still waiting on my results) so i went to the urgent care this Wednesday and they told me I had vaginitis which I really don’t know Much about it I just know it has something to do with bacteria and yeast that grows cause I have some inflammation at the bottom entrance of my vagina and I have a lump on my perineum and around my anus there are spots look like white heads kinda I don’t know I also had anal sex which after me and partner was done with that I was bleeding cause it was rough so I know he had to tear it but I have a lump on my anus and I think it can be a Hemorrhoid they only time my pee burn is when it hits my perineum and alittle around my anus I’m just so scared I been crying and praying just tryna be positive cause the doctors said it could be a few things I just don’t wanna assume it’s herpes cause maybe it can be cause of my infection maybe ? Btw my discharge is like a white cloudy look and my vagina does have a odor due to my infection. They think it’s herpes but I don’t wanna think that cause it can be something else but they have me taking a pills called valacyclovir & cream called acyclovir I’m 19.
I'm desperate for advice as someone newly diagnosed who made a silly decision. Please don't judge, just hear me out.
Following the first sexual encounter with someone I have been dating, I starting feeling weird down below. I had had a Hollywood wax 2 days before I had sex, so I attributed it to this, until it got worst. I went to the sexual health clinic convinced I had picked up some kind of infection from the waxing , but was diagnosed with HSV 1. To say that I was devasted was an understatement. I knew I had to disclose to my recent partner as I am sure that he had given it to me, but I just wasnlt in the right frame of mind. I remained 'normal' with him, although we did not have sex again with me making excuses.
About 4 weeks later, I got a text from him letting me know that he had gine to a clinic and was diagnosed with Male UTI. My mind started spinning as I was convinced it was him who gave me herped when he gave me oral sex. I kind of left it and put it to the back of my mind.
Fast forward to last tuesday, we had sex again (protected and I had no symptoms that I was aware of at the time). However, 2 days later, I am experiencing my second outbreak. Now I am freaking out again!
Is it possible that they mistakenly diagnosed him with a a UTI? Could he actually have had herpes, but no lesions? Could I have now re-infected him after sex (although we used protction, I experience the tingling etc around my bum and thihg area too)? He also performed oral sex again.
I literally sitting her going through my second outbreak and jumping at every message and phone call to my pone as I wait for him to tell me i've given him herpes.
I just want to know whether it is likely that this has happened this time?
I understand that the initla time, it may hve been me who gave him something without knowing I had it, but why would it pressent itself straight after having sex with him (the frst AND second time).
I'm a bit all over the place, so feel free to probe if you need to know more.
Yes, I know I should've disclosed straight away, but i'm having a hard time coping with all this.
