Anything similar happen to you, ladies?

Recommended Posts

I was recently diagnosed with HSV 2 a little over a month ago. My symptoms weren't as bad as they could have been because I went straight to Planned Parenthood and they gave me medication and saved my life prettymuch, it only lasted about 2 1/2 weeks. Anyways, since then, I've had pretty much a non existent sex drive... I used to want it constantly before all of this. Has anyone had the same experience? Is it because of the HSV? Or is it a mental issue? I feel so bad because I haven't had sex with my boyfriend In over a month and he knows i have this, (he does not have it), but he still thinks it's because of him... I'm just genuinely not in the mood, ever. Which isn't normal for me... I just need answers, and anyone who tells me their experience might help me. No matter how much I try to think about having sex, or to get myself in the mood...it just seems like a chore to me... it's really depressing.

Hi kitty I think you’re just a little down over the diagnosis. Your sex drive will eventually come back when the sad feelings taper down a bit I’m not going to say it’ll happen instantly but it will come back so not all hope is lost. If you’re afraid of outright sex try other ways to spice up your relationship with your man maybe try sexting to get you in the mood and other forms of mechanical stimulation.

I thought that it coukd be associated with some type of trauma from the experience. It is after all, the worse thing that could have happened to me. Thank you. I hope it does get better. I've never tried any kind of toy so I'll bring that up to him if I am miraculously in the mood lol.

      I've been having bumps appear on my face around my mouth for a couple years now. They usually take several weeks to disappear but these current lesions have been here for months now and don't seem to be healing at all. I've been applying salicylic acid and oil of oregano twice a week but am having no luck and it appears to be getting worst. This has completely destroyed my self esteem and I've given up on trying to date...  I've attached an image if anyone could help me out with a diagnosis or some type of regiment to help make them go away i'd be forever indebted!

      Hi everyone it's me again. I am really concerned if this is a canker or herpes sore. I got the sore yesterday and it wasnt too visible and I thought potentially it would go away today. I was wrong, it has gotten worse and more inflamed. Please I just need to know what this is. Is this a canker sore or something else.

      Hi everyone. Yesterday during the afternoon this sore popped up in the back of my throat/tonsil. I was hoping maybe today it would be gone, but it is still there and I have a worry it may be herpes. It is improving, but it hurts when I swallow. Also it is really red and irritated. Does anyone have an idea if this is a canker sore or something else?

      Hi everyone,
      I have noticed a very small crater on my penis, right next to the urethra opening. It's shallow, small and painless. There's not really any identifiable features other than it being a small indent, like literally the skin just dips down. There's nothing inside it, no pus or weeping or liquid. No 'top' to it. It appears reddish/pinkish, like the skin around it. It is not sore or painful to touch. I have had it 3 days.
      Here are pictures: https://imgur.com/a/ywiFWeL - it's difficult to photo without it being somewhat lost.
      I have to also say that I've had discomfort of the lower abdomen for a few weeks. I don't have pain while urinating but there's a general discomfort of the urethra. Not burning, but discomfort - around 2/10 in scale.
      I have had this 'crater' or 'indent' come and go before. Maybe around 3 months ago, I remember it was around for a handful of days, and faded again. No scab or healing over, it just sort of faded.
      So does this seem to correlate with a mild outbreak or recurrence? Can anyone point me in the right direction? Has anyone experienced anything similar?
      Doctor's have been extremely slow to help. It's so hard to see someone without waiting weeks, and when I finally do they have little knowledge or barely any time. With many craters, the first answer is often syphilis, but I had that test done before and it came back negative. I haven't had sex since and was well within the test window. I last had sex around 18 months ago, unprotected. I haven't had a Herpes test before.
      I know many of you help keep this website a source of valuable information and ease so many people's anxieties or confusion, thankyou to all of you for your time and work.

      Hey @Fernie hope you are going well. The doctor is spot on here. Many people with HSV-1 end up with slightly elevated results for HSV-2 that does not indicate infection with HSV-2. This persists from test to test for some people. The Westernblot would be useful to you, but will just confirm what is being said to you. Most people actually with HSV-2 test above 3.5 on those sorts of tests.

      Just got off the phone with a doctor and they said based off the history of my tests, it’s most likely a false positive.    they also said that because I have hsv1 that that could be causing the false positive

      How do you know you have hsv-2 orally.  I read that having hsv-2 orally is highly unlikely.

      I’m so confused and don’t know what to do.    Sorry for posting here so much but I’m just lost.   I’ve tested normal on these dates 7/14/2020 0.72 IGG , 10/28/2020 0.89 IGG.    Then I tested low positive 6/6/2021 1.11 IGG.    I went back after that test to confirm the abnormal results on 7/29/2021 0.78 IGG were the results which led me to believe that the first abnormal results were just wrong.    Fast forward to now I just got my results back this morning from 11/27/2021 1.17 IGG, were the results. I’m just so confused, don’t know what to do. I’m going to have a consultation over the phone with a physician today and I also reached out to Terri from Westover Heights.    At this point I’m considering a western blot and I’m so paranoid I also signed up for another full panel std testing. I’m just so confused and stressed out.  Hope my buddy @WilsoInAus sees this
