Hey @Miss Annie have you tried looking into dating sites or meeting someone else with HSV? That way there’ll be no worries about spreading it, well, cause they already have it :) stop living in fear. I’m late but it’s not a life threatening virus and as long as you are careful and on meds the risk should be pretty low. Don’t think no one will accept you, plenty of guys don’t give a shit. Get out there and live your life. Don’t let this virus take everything from you. And if you’re not comfortable, plenty of people are in the same situation we are and I’m sure you could find someone. Best of luck to you. Sorry about the shitty boyfriend. 

Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

All these stories break my heart but its nice to know that we’re all not alone in this. My was basically an assault at a party in the bathroom.  I was dumb for even going in there with him but I was ok with kissing and touching... he was drunk and I was buzzed. He pulled my pants down and trusts into me. It was literally less then a minute long and now I have this for the rest of my life. It’s been terribly painful but it’s also made me a stronger women. We live in a crazy world. I’m just doing my best to get through it and hope that there’s somewhere better on the other side. 

One issue I have with that same night is I had a good friend with me who didn’t stop me from going inside with this guy. She sat there and laughed at me and then later on told me that “he’s not a good guy to be around.” I stopped talking to her after this. She doesnt know I got HSV from it. She was a lifelong friend who let me be taken advantage of and hurt by some jerk. Sometimes I think of reconnecting but then I remember her laugh that night and think otherwise...

      Omg you crack me up. Being reckless is sleeping with a condom and not having any other sexy foreplay before just in case? This was not a random dude I just met at the bar that night, he had been talking to me for 3 months before.  The lawyer was reckless for not disclosing or taking antivirals or whatever. I trusted him for being so nice to me.

      How could I have gotten hsv1 on my genitals as a child??? I’ve never had a coldsore either in my life. My body changed after I had sex with that idiot, which sucked  and it’s not pointless to know who did this to you when in some states it’s considered a crime to transmit an std to another person.

      its very very very hard to know who gave it to you..my drs told me is pointless. and to come back positive for hsv1 on blood test, its alsaw kind of dumb because most people get it as children, and they dont have any outbreak..so could be the lawyer..or not...

      I am in a similar situation. I experience the dizziness every day. I feel fatigued most of my day. I get tiny cuts in the genital area and lips. I get burning/tiny red dots in the genital area. I get tingling sensations in different areas. Valocyclavir did not work for me. I have a tiny, white bump on my lip that crusted over. All tests (no Western Blot) have been negative. Blood work is negative. This all started after I had unprotected sex.   What are your oral outbreaks like?
