hi I was recently diagnosed with herpes wow what a shock this is the last thing I thought would happen to me I asked my partner if he had a history of it and he totally denies it. How else could I get it if he swears he never has had it maybe he is a carrier and just wasn't aware of it. guess I am still in shock of the news and boy do I feel guilty right now like it was my fault

The shock is normal. It's not anything anybody wants to hear but the good news is its a phase and you will get through it. There are plenty of people who don't realize they have herpes. In some the symptoms are so mild they miss them. So it's possible he didn't know he had it and it's also possible you had it and didn't realize it. Herpes is not on the std panel so unless you asked to be tested you probably weren't. That's another reason people don't realize they have it. It takes around 3 months to test positive via blood test so if you were diagnosed that way you've most likely had it that long. I can only suggest that he go and get tested to confirm he has it. But for you, go ahead and let all of the feelings of shock, fear and whatever else out. The quicker you do that, the faster you'll get over them and you will definitely get over that. Just remember that they're plenty of people who have gone through/going through what you are and we're all here to listen if you need us.

It's not the end of the world.

Were you diagnosed via antibodies or culture? If antibody tests are negative, it is likely a recent infection and you got it from him.

      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?
