I posted in the witing for results area

20 minutes ago I got the call and Im positive for HSV-2 from my OB. Im currently 32 weeks pregnant and was so excited about my baby girl entering the world, and now I feel like im world has crashed and Im just numb. I already suffer from Bipolar so I stay pretty depressed a lot, and now this. I know its not over, but I feel as if my life is over, especially my personal life. If it werent hard enough to find someone to date since I have kids, now this crap. Im so mad I let this happen to me. I found myself in a time in my life where I was carefree and didnt think of concequences after my sons father left me during the prepreation for out wedding. I kinda had a mental breakdown. Now I dont know where I got it from. Me and my sons father starting hanging out again in August and as of right now are not on good terms at all. Hes pretty violent in nature and Im horrified to call him. Cant Health dept contact ppl for you? Im just honestly scared what he'll do to me even though I think its his loser tail I got it from.

anyways Im jessica and from NC. Im almost 23 (jan 2nd)

I'm Carrie, i'll be 27 jan 9, and i'm back on the dating scene too. Catie's father and I had a horrible break up and it took me almost 2 years to get back in the dating scene. Finally found a guy i liked and what happened??? He ruined casual dating for me. Figures.

I'm so sorry all this has happened to you. Did your doctor give you any advice about the birth now that you have HSV? I'd hate for you to be surprised when you go in for a natural birth and the doctor insists on a c-section. It's best if you have a doctor who will at least talk things through with you.

I know there's a website where you can send anonymous cards to people who might have infected you. I forget what it is now, but it was in a post not long ago. It might be best for you to go the anonymous route, so it seems like it's someone else from his past (not his current partner) who has it.

Good luck!

thanks so much for the link

Im doing a lil better today. I finally broke and told my mom cause I needed someone to talk to in real life. She told me my father gave it to her when they were married and was reason for their divorce. I never knew that. She said shes only had one outbreak since (87). I feel better knowing its more common that even my mother has it. Now after reading about these tragic stories of babies catching it during delivery, im getting horrified again

It's amazing you and your mom can bond over this. My mom would freak, even if she DID have it.

Stay strong, and take it one day at a time. Talk your delivery fears over with your doctor!

      Yeah and the stigma hit me pretty hard since I'm originally from Asia and we don't have sex ed or STD education so the regret and self-hating are as bad as stigma. Hoping is the only way to get me out of suicidal thoughts. I know that a lot has been done and I'm glad. I just hope they continue with the hsv research instead of abandoning it cuz it's not life-threatening and I also hope that the big pharma conspiracy isn't real.

      @Dvm, he says this to almost everyone.  Best ignore his bad advice

      Thx so much. However HSV can affect the trigeminal nerve/from post herpetic neuralgia and can actually cause all these symptoms. Some people, once affected can have short term symptoms,  while others have sporadic flare ups and some are permanently affected. Gabapentin for trigeminal neuralgia, prescribed by my neurologist, did help me for some time,  but I'm glad to be off it.  Hope my post helps someone w similar issues who havent gotten help from primary care Dr.

      @Dvm you can be assured that HSV is not the cause of these issues. As you have found, it’s likely a spinal issue and it sounds like you have found some help. Stick with that.
