Canadian / Hsv2 feeling down.

Recommended Posts

Matjik

Hello I'm a 34 year old single father who is diagnosed with hsv2. The stigma is crazy and I haven't dated for sometime. I'm sick and tired of feeling lonely and untouchable. The first person I disclosed it too said I was "f#+!ed for life" so I have a hard time talking to people about it. I just wanted to reach out. I mean it's more of a nuisance than anything right ? 

 

Trying to keep positive...

Only the nuisance you let it be in some respects.

Your diagnosis seems a little surprising? How did it come about?

I was passing out on my bed after having some drinks with an old friend. I woke up to her about to give me oral sex.  I later on proceeded to cuddle naked with her and fall asleep. I guess there was skin to skin contact and I contracted it.

Understand, but how were you diagnosed?

By a doctor at a walk in clinic.

Wow! Some told you that you were F'd for life?! Wonder if that person was certain of their own hsv status. Ignorance seems like bliss...but not always the case. 

Yes...it is a nuisance. Maybe only even in the sense of disclosure. Some people never have OB's. 

I get not wanting to talk about it. There are people in my life I would not tell. But I have opened up to my closest family and friends. I've told them what I am dealing with, presented the facts and advised them to go for complete std panels themselves. There are ones so much worse than this. Do not be ashamed....you have not done anything wrong.

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
