Hello All

Recommended Posts


I’m Lyn and 23. I found out that I had genital herpes 10 months ago (around feb 14). When I found out I felt terrible. Thinking why me. I had only been with two men. After finding out I went to my boyfriend and after talking I found out that he had had herpes for more than 10 years. He said that he forgot he had it and that he had never given it to anyone else so it must have been the other guy. That was a lie. He gave it to me. How could he do that? After, I continued to see him because I thought no one else would want me. Like I was damaged goods. Sometimes I still feel like that.

I’m in medical school and I know a great deal about this virus/disease. I know that I will have a normal and very happy life, but right now it just doesn’t feel like that. I think about it all the time and I just feel terrible. I’m very angry.

I started seeing this great guy 4 months ago. He knows everything and he still wants me. He thinks I’m beautiful. Sometimes I sit and wonder why. I love him and I don’t want to hurt him. I don’t want him to hate me. I’m careful and can sense when an outbreak is coming but I’m still scared.

I was always the good girl.

I still love to laugh.

And just need someone to talk to.

I very much like you am the "good girl" I am the responsible one, that goes n gets tested every 6mths, get all my exams done when im supposed to, safe sex... how? why me? Some days are of course better than others. But i also kno that its not the end of my world and that my life will continue.

I am in love, my high school sweetheart and i are workin on gettin bak together (( thaz a long story )) .... havent told him yet, hav also not been intimate since i found out... not so much worried bout his reaction, but im scared that im going to giv it to him. I feel dirty, like im damaged goods and all that, but then i realized that I am still the same person i was, this will not kill me,, it will make me stronger.

      Has anyone tried Longdanxiegan (LDXGFG) as a treatment? There seems to be scientific evidence of great results in animal trials. This is the link to the study https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1028455916000322. It is a Traditional Chinese Medicine formula that now has won some scientific attention. I have previous experience using Traditional Chinese Medicine for improving symptoms of another rare diseases I suffer and, seeing this has been backed by some research, I am considering giving it a try. Thanks to all contributors to this forum for all the valuable information shared.

      Wow this is very sad that this man committed suicide from hsv. We've all been there with depressive states. I think the numbers are accurate...no more than 15% have hsv2. Every forum I join, its low numbers compared to other diseases.

      Me either. I got it from someone I truly cared about and in my experience it’s been hell because I was so hurt over the fact that he put my health at risk without even caring of the consequences because I was so good to him. He was in college starving so I would offer to buy him groceries, I would always be there when he was having a tough time and give him encouragement, and in the end he ignores me but still can go out and party. So maybe I was better off catching it from someone I didn’t care about. Maybe then i wouldn’t be as emotional over it. I feel like if I would’ve just got it from a one night stand I could be like oh yeah well shit happens, but getting it from someone I would’ve done anything for just ain’t fair because I was good to him and I know some people may not know they have it but he was sleeping with multiple women but acting like he wasn’t. If we’re having sex you should care about me enough to let me know what’s going on so I won’t sleep with you anymore if you’re wilding out that crazy but whatever.
