Hello! I’m new here, I found out about 8 months ago that I am living with Herpes. I have been dating my boyfriend for 10 months. I was infected last January. I was out with friends and went to an after party at a mutual friends, friends, party. I ended up getting drugged and raped. I woke up the next morning, covered in my own blood and in an unfamiliar place. Once I got home, I realized I had the worst pain in my genital area. Later to get tested and be positive for herpes. It’s one thing to have herpes, it’s another to have received them through rape.
Anyway, When I found out, I didn’t tell my boyfriend, I was unsure how he would react. It came out one night when I was drunk and he was so angry with me. We are still together and moving to a new state together. But he continues to bring up the fact that I have it and he is terrified he’s going to get it. How can I comfort him, how can we get our relationship back to how it was before he knew? We used to be extremely sexually active (twice a day), now it’s like twice a month, with a condom.
My boyfriend could not cope with the fact that i had it and that he still has not gotten it, he made me get a third test done for his satisfaction. Ive now had 4 tests done. Two came back slightly positive, like .2% over the “ inconclusive” results, one completely negative, and one positive. Help?? What does this mean?
I have done research for a black market cure, has anyone else?
I found one that is being studied in the Caribbean and Mexico. Has anyone else seen anything else about this?
Or know any homeopathic cures?
Thanks for your help. And for reading this long post!
In Vivo Knockdown of the Herpes Simplex Virus 1 Latency-Associated Transcript Reduces Reactivation from LatencyBy Cpt. Hindsight
Pretty cool article discussing a study done in Vivo with rabbits targeting latent HSV1 and using what looks to be a different approach than CRISPR to prevent latent reactivation. I’m not a scientist, but the percentages quoted here sound pretty promising.
“I was tested, I’m clean,” he said on the phone
I said “Are you sure?” I didn’t like his tone
Can I see your results, in plain black and white?
Cause something feels off, I know it’s not right
“My blood tests all negative, I’m in the clear”,
I said “Where is HSV bloods, cause I don’t see it here?”
We both seemed confused, and picked up the phone
It’s not included in the panel? How should we have known?
Did I give it to him? Did he give it to me?
The CDC doesn’t test for herpes? HOW COULD THIS BE?
Did he cheat? Was it dormant? Did I pass on a disease?
No answers from lab coats to put me at ease
No bedside manner, or kindness in their voice
They decide what to test, what about our choice?
I have to beg and to plead to pay for a test?
Because knowing my own status will cause me more stress?
Is this all a joke? Some kind of enigma?
For a medical community to promote this kind of stigma?
“We don’t think the test will change a damn thing”
How about the psycological pain it will inevitably bring?
“We therefore encourage doctors not to run the test”
So let the poor symptomatics deal with the mess?
“Ignorance is bliss, so it’s better to not know”
And for everyone else, you reap what you sow?
“It’s a harmless skin condition,” they’ll tell you I’m sure
But let’s not test or talk about it, and not look for the cure
False positives, the stigma, and lies all around
A few examples as to why the CDC let’s us all down
DEATH TO THE CDC fuck it right up the ass
Include Hsv in the tests, we all may not pass
And that’s perfectly fine let’s talk about it more
Let’s normalize the STI, and the common cold sore.
I was diagnosed GHSV2+ in 7/2017. I had the strangest calmness the entire diagnosis period, it was truly bizarre. I guess I just wasn't really worried; I have this innate, basically primal, belief that there is a yin to every yang… an ‘intuition’’ if you will. For the sake of the length of this response, I won’t go too deep into what I believe. But to make a long story short, NO MATTER WHAT YOU BELIEVE we all come from the same place. Science says big bang, one event. Religion says we come from God, … one being. No matter your beliefs, all creation hypotheses are similar in that it was ONE thing/being/event that created everything. I abso-fuckin-lutely cannot and WILL NOT entertain the assumption that anything is "incurable." A hypothesis that is substantiated and proven over and over again becomes a theory. But a theory is not fact. The only things that have been proven is that WESTERN MEDICINE cannot cure Herpes, as of yet. Mind you, they have not and will never do any kind of legitimate research or trials on naturally occurring substances (esters, herbs, plants, trees, flowers, etc.). Why? Because it is illegal to paten nature. No paten = No money. They are making trillions of dollars a year on Herpes alone.
Before 1928, people died all the time of infections. The discovery of penicillin enabled mankind to say "hey, I have a cure for that!" But people all around the world have been curing infections for millennia with herbs. Example: I have an ear infection. My options are to 1. provide my body with proper nutrients, maybe stuff some garlic in my ear, and allow my body to do what its designed to do OR 2. (the lazy way) drop a few drippy drops of an antibiotic solution in my ear twice a day for 10 days. BOTH will work, but BIG PHARMA can only paten one, profit off one, and claim "curability" for one. Which do you think it is?! In my opinion, we will NEVER see a cure for herpes. Medically and symptomatically, Herpes just isn’t a big enough deal. No one has ever died from Herpes.
It is the 21st century and there are people out there, like me and possibly you, who don’t give a fork about big pharma’s claim to the incurability of Herpes. It is 08/2018 and I’ve had herpes for 13 months now. I have done an INSANE amount of research in the quest to cure myself. I have read (not many) testimonials from people claiming to have cured themselves. The problem (and scary part) is that these people won’t provide contact information, their names, or anything else identifying. The number of holistic healers who are dying and disappearing is honestly super forking scary. I want to know all your thoughts on this!! Comment down below.

A good compilation of ongoing clinical trials for herpes is on this website:
I also like this site for an idea of what's currently being funded by the NIH/NIAID. You can also view all of their publications on HSV:
