1 year herpesanniversary

Recommended Posts

This past weekend marked 1 year I've been since being infected w GHSV1. Still single and it still affects the way I deal with intimacy / relationships. I am still not comfortable disclosing, although I have done it 3 times (twice went well, once did not). I am not with any of these people anymore.  I feel much better about it compared to when I was first diagnosed but I'd be lying to myself I said it's a non-issue.

I am about at the same point.  

How has your outbreak pattern been?   

I have never had a sore that is obvious herpes on my genitals bit continue to have many sensations down there that I didn't before. 

I was expecting to be completely normal by now.

I had only 1 outbreak since the initial infection, about 6 mo after. It was after a bout of prolonged rough sex.  Recurred in the same exact spot as the initial outbreak. I took the medication when it first started to recur and it went away pretty quick. Very mild, no big deal. I knew immediately what it was. Very different than any other sensation I've had down there. Maybe you aren't feeling new sensations, but the smallest different feeling you think you might be getting an outbreak. When you're really having an outbreak you'll know it!!

I have pretty constant nerve, itching and burning sensations on the surface of my thighs.  

No specific spot on my genitals either but occasionally get like an irritating sensation on my testicles or near the tip of my penis.  

Not sure I could discern what you are referring to amongst the constant sensations down there.

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
