Hey there, First of all relax unless testing confirmed it you probably don’t have hiv. Feeling ill is common especially if your immune system is not up to snuff just trying boosting it up with vitamins and supplements. Your wife loves you and you have a great support system in all of us here so yes you will get through this.

Just get checked out to ensure everything is ok and try to reduce stress as much as you can. Lots of people on here get ill during outbreaks your body is probably adjusting to the new invader but perhaps you could benefit from suppressive treatment

I'm interesting in this. I am a gay male, have just had 1 partner last 5 months, but I just noticed 4-5 white pimple like bumps in my ass. I'm not feeling well either, and I'm pretty scared it's herpes. I'm going to get a STD blood test tomorrow, and thinking of visiting a doctor as well. Any thoughts or advice would be great, I'm at a loss...

      Having HSV-2 has not bothered me at all for casual sex. I'm just avoiding sex during outbreaks, on suppressive therapy and using condoms every time with casual partners. Since my outbreaks appear on top of my penis, even during an outbreak the risk is minimal if I put a condom on as soon as I take my underwear off.  I guess it might be a slightly different case for a girl as if you have external lesions around your groin you could still infect someone even using a condom. And of course, condoms can break, which has happened to me over 10 times and caused myself to get infected in the first place.  I see it as a much more difficult now having a serious relationship, because I can't feel much with a condom on and really want stop using them. However, I don't want to put my new girlfriend to any risk - I would feel terrible if I infected her.

      Does anyone have experience about people's reactions to Herpes in Asia? Personally I live in Thailand where I also caught the virus as a condom broke 4 years ago.  Unfortunately I infected my ex-girlfriend with HSV-2. This was just after I had caught the virus myself and we had sex before I noticed and realised what it was. In the beginning, a local doctor told me I have just hurt my foreskin with my jeans' zipper and the tests came as negative. After getting tested later it came as positive.  Anyways, my ex-gf (well educated, professional, 26 years old then) she had no idea what Herpes was in the first place. She didn't really care too much about it and didn't bother to get tested. During our 3 year relationship we kept having unprotected sex as usual and she never had any issues until at the end one day. She had a very minor outbreak once and nothing after that (lucky her, no like myself who gets terrible symptoms non-stop). I know she has a strong immune system, because she was never sick despite myself having bad colds quite often. In any case, she could not care less about this virus and didn't mind at all.

      I've seen a lot of hysteria surrounding Herpes in Europe and the US. What has been your experience in South-East Asian countries like Thailand? Do people perceive HSV-2 as a worrying disease?
