World's Largest Herpes Support Group

New here. Over 10 Years experience ;)

Recommended Posts


I’ve been living with genital herpes for 10 years and honestly the disclosure part is always the hardest. Just put yourself in their shoes. See it from the perspective of not having herpes and receiving the news from someone you really care about. Be it a friend or a boyfriend/girlfriend relationship. I’ve never had anyone be disrespectful or reject me for having disclosed my “condition”... which a majority of us have but don’t talk about it anyway. The truth of it is, is that it doesn’t define who you are as a person and if you disclose to someone who is kind and respectful, you’ll find that they are accepting of you having herpes. It’s a trust building conversation to have early on in a relationship before sex of course. And... if for some reason you are rejected... you weren’t meant to be together with that person. I’m here for support and to support if anyone needs it. Open mind and open heart.

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
