MY First Talk Tomorrow And I Am SOOO Scared

Recommended Posts


So I met this new guy 7 weeks ago after my longterm boyfriend told me I wasn't his one.

My new guy is such a sweetheart and a keeper! He has just been away with his job for the last 10 days and while he's been away I found out I have HSV1.

My ex gave it to me - knew he had it but buried his head in the sand, first I knew was a mild ob.

New guy has text and called everyday telling me how much he misses me can't wait to see me etc.

He's back tomorrow and I have to tell him, I know how hurt I was not being told. As far as HSV is concerned it doesn't from what i read have to be that bigger deal in my life but I am so scared of the talk and I guess ultimately losing this amazing guy.

Any advice xx

I hope your talk goes well. Have you done anything with this new guy that will expose him to the virus? That will probably be harder for him to deal with than just the idea of you having it. You should have him get tested, and until you're both comfortable with it, agree to take it slow. News like this is hard, and he will probably need some time to digest it. Hopefully, if he's as great as you think he is, he'll be more than understanding and this will bring you closer. Let us know how it goes!

      Hi, I have the exact same thing and have been to a gp and sexual health clinic and it hasn’t been resolved. Did you get any answers?

      a week ago, I went to lab and get my test done for STD. everything is clear on the test except HSV 1.   Ranges are  <0.90 - Negative 0.90-1.09 - Equivocal >1.09 - Positive   And My result for HSV 1 seems to be too high    it is HSV 1 IGG, TYPE SPECIFIC AB 56.90 H ( OUT OF RANGE ) I was paid for this test (full std) everything came back negative except hsv 1, after I seen the result, I called my doctor to made an appointment to discuss this matter. I will most likely request a test from my doctor and have him to check this out.  It's been 3 years I was in USA and had sex just a couple times.   I never had unprotected sex since like 10 years. I was in USA for 3 years now and like i said never had sex unprotected almost for 10 years. Received oral for 5-6 times.   Here is the picture :  The purple marks on my legs are stretch marks due of doing weight lifting. I do have so many of them on my body. As you see in the picture, they are FLAT. not like a bump or pimple. I checked so many pictures on internet but I think mines don't look like herpes but I just want to know your thoughts about this.
