New, not sure & in pain

Recommended Posts


Hi everyone

I am new here and looking for support like everyone I guess.

Discovered some sores and what looked like blisters on Saturday morning and thought "what the hell is that and why is it soe damn itchy". Firsst thoughts were YEAST INFECTION", but I have had one before and I know that it does not come with sores or blisters. After spending two very restless nights I went to the dr. on the 24th and she informed me she thinks I have herpes.........I said I have what????????? she said either that or a bact. infection. She has swabbed and I am awaiting the results. In the meantime she put me on meds along with the top. cream. I have one day left of meds and I just cannot believe that I am in such pain still with these sores. I am blow drying which helps a little to dry the area, but it gets wet quit quickly!!!!???? Test results back in ten days from the 24th. MERY CHRISTMAS TO ME.

I have been with the same partner for over ten years. Had a child in 2005 vaginally and thought that I was tested back then through my blood for all that kind of stuff. I thought it was one of the mandatory blood tests that preg. women take when they take 13 vials of blood from you (at least that even what I thought I read). I know that if you test positive they will not let you have a vaginal delivery.

Got very stressed last Thursday and bango!!!!!

My husband is faithfull (I know your all thinking well maybe). I have been cheated on with my first husband and I know this time there is just now way. He is in shock with me and lost for words. Never having had any sort of breakout on himself and he does not understand as much as me since I have been the one doing all the reading now.

We are trying to have our second child and finding this out if I test positivie is really painful to bear.

Thanks for listening to my rant.:sad:

      Why is it your worst fear to have GHSV-1?

      Not sure if this has already been mentioned before, could we donate to his lab? Hsv specifically?

      It can be very difficult to diagnose I do not know the lab discussed here but I have read about sexual health clinics that no longer use the blood tests for this reason of false negatives. Even swabs can be hard they were in my case.  I know I have it and never resorted to the biopsy.

      Do your own research and consult with GP's. I would assume you have this until its totally ruled out.  

      I read about a person on this site who tested neg on the IgG and pos on the weston blot.

      Please do your own research.

      If it is an issue why not speak to admin about creating two separate threads...one for those looking at natural management and "supposed" natural cures and one looking at medical breakthroughs. That way both interests are served, no one is offended and people who wish to look at both can. No one is excluded and everyone included. Those who want to stay with the medical threads can. Maybe there will be less issues that way. 

      Personally I would prefer not to engage with those who are seeking vaccines and gene tech ect esp if they are nasty or condescending and prefer to support and encourage like minded without the excessive debates in a supported enviro.

      Just putting it out there.

      do not panic. be more careful in future and work through the tests. you are better to assume you do and isolate a bit and watch the symptoms. it is hard to test for via blood, and swabs. weston blot is supposed to be most reliable and biopsy too although extreme. red lump that sort of crusted - well herpes symptoms vary widely. 

      it can be hard to deal with doctors as they can assume you do not have it if some test come back neg...they do not always take the attitude to look for it.

      do not panic and follow the steps and research.
