How long should one wait to tell someone you have Herpes?

I just told someone I was seeing that I had Herpes, I waited 3 weeks to tell her and she ended things because she felt betrayed.

I think it depends sorry to hear. I think it places us in a really vulnerable situation and if u do not know if u want to keep seeing the person and u have only been on a few dates u do not need to tell them. I think of u feel u have seen them a fair bit and u may get intimate u need to disclose. If she was not willing to even hear u out that it is hard to have that talk and the fear of rejection then that says more about her.

How did you explain it ? Do you have 1 or 2 ? I’m wondering and just would like to know as well .

There are some really good posts on disclosure on this site. Sometimes u can advise u tested positive for hsv instead of just blurting it out and then discussing how it effects u and what it means. If that person wont even hear u out... they aren’t worth it. But still a very bad experience for u and i am not minimizing it. I fully gwt the difficulty of it. As i am in the same boat.

You can do it . It’s something u have to do and its a part of u but not who u are.

      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?
