I was infected with hsv 2 on February 24th still waiting for my blood test to come back even though I’m not naive to what’s happening down there. My family and friends have been supportive but I still feel alone since none of them really know what I’m going through. Any feedback, encouragement, and understanding is greatly appreciated plus I have a few question about natural approaches and eventually having kids

The part that’s making me angry about the whole situation is the guy that gave it to me is denying that he has it at all. He’s the only person that I’ve been with since December and I started going through symptoms 24 hours afterwards

Unfortunately this is all too common. They either deny it, they act like they just found out after you confront them or they half ass admit it but act like it's no biggie because their symptoms aren't that bad. He may never admit it. I'm sorry you got infected, it will get a bit easier to deal with mentally & physically as time goes by :(

My ex who gave it to me admitted to the blisters and where they were, how contagious they were even wore gloves (he had them every where! Genitals, mouth, hands, everywhere) and how his girlfriend got her flair at the same time he did and how amazing they get to go through it together. He did call it a flair. He won't ever admit it's herpes. But at least I had a bit of a heads up before I got my first outbreak.

 

As far as family planning goes, Mimi, I been curious about that since my diagnosis as well. I have kids with my ex. That's the only reason he gets to breathe in my general direction or at all. I want kids with my new spouse. You can have kids! You can have normal births and can breastfeed. There has to be some precaution to prevent the baby getting the virus and a possibility of a c section if you do have an OB. Prenatal visits are vital and them knowing your status. Other than that it's relatively normal. Oral herpes have to be more cautious like with kissing kids, but genital herpes stay clothed and wash hands after going to the bathroom or if you touch the sores or anything. General care.

      More confusion! So the results have come back for both of the partners that I've been with over the last 3-4 years and they are both negative for type 1 and type 2. Where do I go next? Any advice?

      please look through the forum in exact and careful detail and inform yourself of less than usual circumstances to cover yourself.

      auto inoculation is rare and it can happen. off objects is debated but some people claim it happens. some people have experienced it happens easily.

      so you know practice good hygiene. i personal think use a heated towel rail and make sure your towels are fully hot and dry. there were studies in the 80's showing it can live on towels for 75 hours. The herpes association say most experts agree it cannot be caught off a towel. That is most experts not all. Some people end up with it on their body and one has to wonder how? Towels I would guess.

      Things that tend to stay kinda wet or so on. cups are another one that fit that i think.

      I remember being at university once and being in the bathroom while a girl was on the phone to her friend.She thought she had a bite on her face but clear to me someone with herpes had kissed her on the cheek recently, it didnt look typical just her skin peeling. 

      I am not an expert though or a doctor so do your own research.

      Update: The creme that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      Lilian, the zinc acetate we are talking about here is different from the tetrapodal zinc oxide that you are mentioning. But thanks for the reminder. The ointment that contains the tetrapodal zinc oxide still isn't available at Gorch Fock Apotheke Kiel. I called them today: same status as last year and they have no further information on when and if it will be available again.

      I've had neg swabs but I am sure you'll get it. Follow the process. I haven't read the thread in exact detail, but if you have documentation of doctors mishandling your case when you get/ if you get a poss inform them in writing as well as the medical board I think.  Under diagnosis is as problematic as false pos and reducing transmission is good.
