Will I ever get married?

Recommended Posts


Upon hearing that I have herpes, the first thing that came to mind is will anyone marry me knowing that I have herpes?

Will I be able to have kids?

WIll I be able to perform oral sex for my husband?

This is really depressing.

I dont know what to do?

Nesblues - yes, you can get married. Yes, you can have perfectly healthy, normal children. Yes, you can perform oral sex. The difference is you have something to take into consideration. It's not a brick wall, it's just a small pebble that has to be considered and discussed, and then stepped over gently.

Everyone goes through a period of mourning or confusion and even anger when they're first diagnosed. Please understand that your concerns are valid and normal. But the more you arm yourself with knowledge, the more you'll come to understand that this is just a small consideration in a world full of important things you will do.

Like catiesmom said.

You can get married, have kids, give and receive oral.

I am going through a divorce. So I was married after my diagnosis. We aren't divorcing because of HSV only because he is an ass. LOL!!

I have a beautiful, wonderful, healthy, 4 yr old son. I was diagnosised just before becoming pregnant. And I had him vaginally with NO problems.

I am in a wonderful relationship with a guy. Now 8 months along. We have great sex without condoms (our decision). And we both give and receive oral sex.

Life can and will go on, as long as you let it. Take time to accept this little inconvience. Because that is all that it is. People do accept this and will love you. Nowpersonally I have not had any bad experiences like some but most will accept. Some you will scare away. And personally if they run because of this, they wouldn't have stuck around for the heavy stuff.

PM me if you have any questions, nothing is personal to me. I am here to help.

      Ok so here’s my background.  I hade my first outbreak genitially about 2 months ago.  I got swabed positive for GHSV1. My blood tests were neg so I am assuming a new infection but who knows if I had it or not.  I been reading on here and other research. So I got oregano oil and started to use it on my lower back with coconut oil to dilute it.  I was putting the combo on and would use a couple large bandaids to apply it and keep it in place overnight.  Did it for about 5 days.  I peeled off my bandaids two days ago and had two sores where the sticky part is about an inch apart.  Does the oregano oil attract the virus to cause an outbreak like this in the spot on lower back or are the sores from irritation of possibly too much oregano oil?  Anyone have a clue if this is an outbreak and caused by putting the oil there?
