Hello everyone

I found out I contracted HSV-2 about a year ago today and since then I haven't dated anyone. I don't know it really crushed me when I found out. I don't really know what to say. It's hard for me to approach anyone and tell them, I haven't been on the dating scene either because I don't want this to crush someone else like it has myself. I've definately done my homework on this but I still feel like it would be hard to tell someone you were dating about this, I definately would but I would becrushed if some of the responses others have gotten on here when they tell their loved ones they have it freak out on them. I'm not looking for love or anything but I feel I could relate to someone who already has this and it would be nice to meet someone in the same situation I am in. Oh well I'm ranting and it's late, have a good night.

Welcome to you both!

This is a good place to learn about how to live life with hsv .... and meet some good people. Sometimes it takes a while to get a response to a post...please don't take it personally....everyone's kind of crazed with the holidays right now so the board isn't as busy as usual.

Take care!

new and totally devastated

hi all,

the title says it all. i just found out i have herpes although the 2 gynos i saw were not sure if it was type 1 or 2. i guess i'll find out this week. i'm so devasted i am still feeling like my world has ended.

its nice to hear that people are in the same boat (not that i would wish this on anyone).

the hardest part for me so far is the tole that its taken on my spirituality. i feel like i am being punished....

Welcome to each of you! I must say this site is really helpful. It it were not for this site, I probably would have lost my mind when I was first diagnosed with genital herpes 2. It took me a while to process the diagnosis and accept it. It is going to take a while, but know that it will get better. I was diagnosed a year ago and I would have never thought then that I would be upbeat a year later. :D

      Hey there. Best thing to do is to go in and specifically ask for a herpes IgG blood test and a swab if you have any active sores / bumps present. That's the only way to know for certain. Your symptoms do not sound like the typical symptoms one would experience, but, each person experiences this virus differently. Best to get checked before assuming the worst. Best of luck to you!

      Good question. I want to know the answer too. I apply Abreva to the infected area preventively and take multivitamin to boots up immunity. I am not sure how effective my method is but it is better than doing nothing I guess.

      My assumption and ignorance of herpes was oozing puss filled blistering sores, pain and sickness. You get it by sleeping with whores and sketchy people. Boy was I wrong. I know this is long but hopefully some of you can relate. A week ago I woke up to small painless blisters on my penis out of nowhere. Never happened before. No pre-itching, no pre-tingling, no redness, no sick feelings, no pain, no discharge. I hadn’t slept with anyone in over a month, so wtf. The next morning they were gone, with cuts/sores left behind. They didn’t itch or hurt, only as much as a cut would. I left them alone. I went to a doctor and showed him a photo of the blisters (because they were already gone), he said looks like herpes. How could it be? No woman I’ve ever slept with in the past two years has mentioned it before, during or after me. I didn’t have one night stands. I had regular friends with benefits who could tell me. The doctor did a swab. I asked for a blood test and he said there’s no point. He was certain, so I went to another doctor. He looked at the photos and said it doesn’t look like herpes. I was confused. I asked for a blood test. He was hesitant, but I got an IGG. Now in the past couple years I have had some cuts between my buttcheeks. I always chalked it up to yeast or not wiping enough or too much. It always came out of nowhere, no sickness, no brutal pain, no ooozing puss filled blisters. I never went to a doctor about it. It was uncomfortable, but eventually went away after a week or two. I had assumed genital herpes meant penis, and I wasn’t having anal sex. On this very forum when I was doing research waiting for results, someone said I was being ridiculous thinking I have herpes with non-symptoms like these. Well, today I went in for my swab results. I’m still waiting for the IGG test, but the herpes culture came back positive for HSV2 isolated. The doctor is certain the IGG will come back positive. I’m not really sure how to deal with all this. Right now I feel like a leper, like damaged goods, but also if I’ve had this for years and had no idea until now, I also feel like it’s no big deal. Not a single person in the past two years has got it from me to my knowledge or were incredibly lucky to get a version that shows no symptoms. My concern is explaining that to people going forward who have my prior assumptions, and will not want me. One doctor told me I should for legal reasons go back a year and tell everyone I’ve been with. Another doctor said that’s not realistic. I didn’t have a major episode where I can pinpoint infection, so how far back should I go? I don’t have contact info for many of these people now. I’m not sure what to do. I have so much more to say. I look forward to talking to you all, and am happy this forum exists. Thanks for listening.

      Thanks for the reply - I’ll try not to think about it and I’ll update in a couple weeks either way.

      Hello , I'm new to this page. Never though I'd sse so much support from people regarding this so called ( hsv) To be honest I dont even know what's wrong with me . I've tested negative in everything. So a little background, I had sex with a person months back. Then later I found out she was married, her husband calls me uo and says HEY MANUEL GO GET TESTED   I know you and my girl were going out behind me back. But in  reality i had no clue she was married only had sex once. But then after he called me i started seeing weird things going on down their. No burning or anything like that. But I do once in a while get a TINGLING SENSATION. AND LATELY IVE BEEN GETTING VERY TINY RED DOTS oN MY PENIS. when I'm fully erect it turns really red. But no sores or anything like that. The weirdest thing is  semen  feels very very thick. I've never ever experienced anything like that In My life. I'm scared to death to be honest. I cant sleeep nothing at all. It just feels very dry and red  whe erect. What could this possibly be???!!! I would post a picture but in very embarrassed. I'm 30 years old. Had one partner my sons mom for 15 years.  But iva had 2 partners aside from here since we broke up. In the last year. Plese anyone can help me out. I'm in full depress mode.
