Its been a year since my outbreak that hurted. 18 months later i get these little bumps and rash that was itchy.. and thank goodness they didnt hurt or burn. 

But im wondering later in life will i get the same painful sores like the first time? Or will they get more milder just like the little itchy bumps i had? I dont ever want to feel pain like the first outbreak

Now what is important is exactly the test you had and what were the results. Did you get a copy of the results?

You really have to stay curious on this one. There are many incorrect tests and even more incorrect interpretations. It is very unusual to be suddenly diagnosed with both types using a blood test. It really warrants further probing.

Why did you get this particular blood test? Have you had any others?

Well ill tell you my whole story. I lived in another city. About 1 Year and 6 months ago i broke out in sores, they were bumps and i think one lesion near my butt.. it burned to pee. I went to a klinic to get checked. The docter there examined me and she told me "these look like herpes but im not sure" then she gave me blue pills. They worked well bc the sores went away. The tests came back and the nurse told me that i had chlamydia and gohnoreea but didnt tell me i didnt have herpes?! They took a swab, blood, and pee test this time.

Then 1 year and 6 months go by. I live in another place. 3 weeks ago i noticed red bumps down there that felt rough to touch. The bumps didnt burn or hurt they just itched. I shaved 2 weeks before they appeared. I got worried and went to the nurse to get a blood test to tell me atleast if i had herpes. Then today they tell me the tests came back hsv 1 and 2 poaitive. But ive never had any cold sores at all. idk about inside my mouth

But who knows.. I heard herpes symptoms can be mild that it goes unnoticed.

I plan to kill myself on new years

Hey @Sheena C in the end, you will be dead a hell of a lot longer than you are alive, there is really no rush!

Where are you located roughly?

Please contact the doctor's office for a copy of the test. You want to know the following:
- which tests were performed, was it IgM, IgG or both
- was it type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2 or a combined test
- what were the values for each of the separate tests you received.

That’s terrific @Sheena C stay with us here. There will be multiple people watching your story thinking about you. You are also likely to provide some role modelling to the many young men and women who will also experience issues and feel lost and in some despair.

Come whatever may, as far as herpes is concerned, this is a natural human virus along for life’s journey that will only influence that journey to the extent you let it.

Sheena,

Wilson is right on all accounts. The biggest is that you mention you have a plan on New Years. It sounds like you are in a lot of pain and for that I am sorry you are going through this. It is difficult what you are going through but I can tell you the night is darkest just before the dawn. There is literally a plethora of new meds coming out along with cutting edge medical advancements. This will not be around for very long within you. You can’t take back a decision like this. You are now in a class the same as the majority of the world. The majority has this virus, something that is a part of us. Live your life, treat it as a medical condition, and await the inevitable cure that will be here before you know it. Just live your life. I’ll be praying for you.

      The ashwagandha is good for thyroid health. I am not familiar with the rest. That is not a list I would put together!

      Hey @moonperson it is not likely that you have given a genital HSV-2 infection to 3 of your friends or your boyfriend from any of the activities that you describe. I'm sure this is all fine. How did your new diagnosis come about?
    • WilsoInAus
      Me too, me too, I hope you can reach you desired level of health... I just think it isn't fully fair in a way to imply that your unfortunate issues are caused by herpes when there is virtually no chance that they are.

      Hello y’all, im newly diagnosed with herpes simplex 2 and I’ve given it to 3 of my friends and boyfriend. It migrated from my genitals to my mouth and I smoked weed with my friends via pipe without understanding my infection fully. Then my boyfriend told me it’s okay to kiss and give him head cuz he loves me anyway. He’s not a big chaser or nothing, he’s just dumb. I’m living in constant anxiety and a tumultuous emotional state—just seeing if anyone has similar experiences and tips/tricks you may have picked up on the way leaving with herpes, either strain. Honestly, I’m just needing some support, even if herpes is “common” and “manageable”, it has been a heavy heavy weight on my mind.
