New HSV1 G diagnosis

Recommended Posts

Alexis Hamilton

I was diagnosed with HSV1 on my genitals yesterday. Needless to say I am a bundle of emotions. I’m angry at who gave it to me (I used protections) which I know doesn’t protect you from oral HSV or protect you 100% and concerned about what it his means for relationships in the future.  :(

Hey Alexis, 

first of all: I can understand how you feel. However, don't worry too much about it. What would have happened if you would have got it on your mouth? Nearly everyone has the virus in his or her body today. That's just how it is. If you stay healthy, eat well and make sports regularly you'll be fine. 

Relationships in the future won't change drastically. The only thing is that you should disclosure to the people you want to have sex with. I know, that sounds very scary and impossible at the moment, but believe me - I talked about it with the guys I wanted to have sex with and no one really had a problem with it. One even told me that he thinks he has it too B| (and I am sure he wouldn't have told me...)

If you google for "disclosure herpes" you will find some very good "How to"-videos and texts if you need some help. And if you are sad or whatever, just let this forum know - there are a lot of very nice people going to support you :yep:

Thanks. Yes I’m sad. I think a lot of people even though they may have it are totally ignorant to having it or don’t know how easy it is to get it etc. I am just struggling with I am relatively certain the person I got it from knew. Dating is hard enough as it is.  Sigh...

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
