Hey everyone, I’ve had hsv 1 or cold sores on my lips since I was a little girl, my mom and aunt have it. Just a few hours ago my gynecologist told me that it was possible that on the last ob about 2 weeks ago I probably didn’t washed well my hands or unconsciously did something and got it down there (labia). I was having a hard month( my grandpa died, college finals) and the only thing that kept me happy was starting a relationship with an amazing guy so you can tell I’m really heartbroken, feeling like really bad and depressed. One friend suggested me to join this group so I could feel better and meet new people and outcomes.
God Bless You All
Hello! I’m new here, I found out about 8 months ago that I am living with Herpes. I have been dating my boyfriend for 10 months. I was infected last January. I was out with friends and went to an after party at a mutual friends, friends, party. I ended up getting drugged and raped. I woke up the next morning, covered in my own blood and in an unfamiliar place. Once I got home, I realized I had the worst pain in my genital area. Later to get tested and be positive for herpes. It’s one thing to have herpes, it’s another to have received them through rape.
Anyway, When I found out, I didn’t tell my boyfriend, I was unsure how he would react. It came out one night when I was drunk and he was so angry with me. We are still together and moving to a new state together. But he continues to bring up the fact that I have it and he is terrified he’s going to get it. How can I comfort him, how can we get our relationship back to how it was before he knew? We used to be extremely sexually active (twice a day), now it’s like twice a month, with a condom.
My boyfriend could not cope with the fact that i had it and that he still has not gotten it, he made me get a third test done for his satisfaction. Ive now had 4 tests done. Two came back slightly positive, like .2% over the “ inconclusive” results, one completely negative, and one positive. Help?? What does this mean?
I have done research for a black market cure, has anyone else?
I found one that is being studied in the Caribbean and Mexico. Has anyone else seen anything else about this?
Or know any homeopathic cures?
Thanks for your help. And for reading this long post!
No idea what this is, I am already a hypochondriac and I am extra paranoid about my sexual health due to a past diagnosis of chlamyida. My vulva is super swollen and painful and I just discovered this white patch near the opening. Does it look like herpes? It definitely doesn't look like a common sore... If not, what else could it be? I am in pain, stressed, and fighting anxiety attacks.
Another photo of the white spot... it has super tiny red dots inside it?
I had a mildly risky encounter. The girl had a bf for 1 year so that's a good sign. After they broke up we slept together a few times. Always using a condom. But on aug 26 we did not use a condom for sex. A week later I was moving into a new house and I legit wore the same underwear for like a week and also didn't wear underwear and wore tight jeans.
About a month later I developed a rash. It was painless. Hardly itched. No blisters or ulcers. Like red rash and partially inflamed skin. This rash all occurred under my foreskin. (I am uncircumcised). And then it went away a day or so after showering. But before it went away it was getting redder and redder.
Another month later a less severe rash returned in the same area. I got std tested and all came back negative. The doctor did not do a herpes test, because there was no ulcers. And he did not do a herpes blood test because I have oral herpes when younger so it would show positive. But he looked at my penis rash and said it's just irritation or something. And gave me some cordrison (or whatever 1%) cream.
This is is the third time that this rash has appeared in the span of 5ish months. It's never painful itchy or whatever.
Gove me me your thoughts please.
smegma more more than usual. Sometimes dry skin peels off (very little)
no itch, no burn,
