    Hi! I’m sorry. The same exact thing happened to me two weeks ago and I legit had no idea it could possibly be herpes. The pain was so excruciating I couldn’t handle it. I was in the same state and the pain made me not even able to work. It does get better. I know right now that’s hard to see but my pain went away within about 5 days. It varies for everything. I took an epsom salt bath like twice a day and took lysine supplements as well as the antivirals. At first I couldn’t even touch the area without crying but as the pain calms down, I started to use aloe Vera which helped as well. It does get better. My doctor prescribed me pain medication while the outbreak lasted but even Advil should help. It does get better soon I promise. Sending love

    I am currently in college, and I am interested in a more casual sex/hook up lifestyle. I was diagnosed with genital HSV-1 last March. I broke up with my ex in May (for reasons besides getting a herpes diagnosis), but now I am wanting something more casual. I am from a small college where word gets around easily, so disclosing this information to a potential (and possibly talkative – sometimes it’s hard to tell) one night stand or hook up is daunting. If I am not having an outbreak, am on antivirals, and always use condoms would it be necessary to disclose the information? I am a very educated woman. I have read up on HSV to a great extent. One of the reasons why I question it is that people with cold sores kiss their partners all the time when no cold sore is present. Is this the same risk as having sex with no outbreaks genitally? The person I am hooking up with may not even ask if I have been tested, so are they are putting themselves at risk too? I do not want to seem immoral with this reasoning, but I guess I just do not know how easily transmitted this virus is even in terms of asymptomatic shedding. I do not want to feel like my sex life is completely changed now that I am single and do not want anything serious with anyone. I know having an STI is a big responsibility for myself and others, but any advice would be great.

    I was just diagnosed with genital HV1 yesterday. I was in a two year relationship up until August 2019, and in October had sex with a new partner. From my understanding, this means I contracted herpes from him. However, there is a complication. I have had oral herpes since I was 13 but have never given it to someone and have not had an outbreak in almost a year. Is it possible that I somehow gave myself genital herpes?

    If it’s unlikely I somehow gave myself genital HV1, then I am unsure if he knows he has herpes and I don’t know how to tell him.

    Does anyone have advice for this?

    So I’m newly diagnosed with herpes type 2 since September and recently I’ve been experiencing a foul smell from my discharge and I don’t know why. I haven’t been getting any outbreaks since starting my meds. But I haven’t been able to figure out how to fight this smell. Please I’ll appreciate any suggestions I just can’t find anything online at all.

    there is lots of research done on sex with it… taking your suppressants and using condoms and dental dams for oral are very important when having sex with your partner… there is no 100% chance that you will not give it to him but the chances of him getting are very low… like 1% chance of you passing it to him. make sure to have an open conversation with him and let him know about the chances that it could happen. and never have any type of sex (vaginal, anal or oral) while you have an outbreak. there are definitely still ways for you to be intimate with him as long as you have an open honest conversation with him. I would suggest getting him tested as well, blood tests will be able to tell if he is a carrier of it as well, even if he does not show signs does not mean that he doesn’t have it. I hope this helps! 🙂

    Hi there, just wanted to say hi and you’re not alone. I just found out two weeks ago that I had it. I’ve been with the same person for one year and have never had any symptoms then randomly had a outbreak. I’m still really struggling with it all and feel like my world has come crashing down. My boyfriend is the only one I can talk to about it since we are both affected but I’m too scared to even open up to my friends or family. It’s hard going through such crazy emotions and not feeling like you cant share or even show the pain you are going through. I’m thinking about starting therapy so I can talk to someone about it because I agree, it feels good to just talk it out. Sending my love to you and fingers crossed for your results. ❤️

    I was 20 when I first found out that I was diagnosed with Herpes simplex 2. I was dating an awful guy. He did heroin, stole my car and totaled it, stole thousands of dollars from me and cheated on me, but the hardest one that I had to deal with was he gave me an infection that will be with me for a lifetime.

    I was laying in his bed with him as we started, I told him he needed to use a condom, he neglected my wishes and forced himself inside of me anyway. I was upset beyond belief, but time went on and thought nothing of it. a few months down the road, we were having sex and I started crying it hurt so bad, he didn’t care about how I felt and continued. I went home and tried to urinate and it was the worst pain I have felt. I thought maybe he was just too rough and had torn me, a few days went by and it was getting worse. I was afraid to pee anymore, so I went to the dr. She looked at me and told me that it was herpes. She sent in a test and I got a call a week later telling me infact it was herpes simplex 2. I sat and cried for weeks about it, my best friend was the only one who was there for me. I told my boyfriend at the time and was “sorry”. I stayed with him for months because he was the one who gave it to me, he was the only one who was going to accept me for it, since he was the one who had given it to me. In January of 2018, we finally ended it because he had cheated on me again.
    I felt worthless, disgusting and humiliated. I would never find love again. due to this, I fell into a deep depression. I have yet to get out of the depression but I am trying my best. I met someone and have been talking for a year now and he seems amazing. tonight I finally told him everything. he has told me that he will learn about everything he can and that he still wants to be with me, and that is great. I still feel like this unloveable person. someone that cannot have a normal life ever. I take the pills as I should, to decrease the chances of an outbreak happening but I know there is still a chance that he could get it.
    Somedays I wish I wasn’t alive. other days I wish the man that had given it to me wasn’t either. I have been living with this for 2 years and it feels like a nightmare that doesn’t end. I question how having children will work or if I will ever have children. This is not the life I wanted or asked for. I have not seen a counselor to help me cope with this, I know I should and I am sure they can help me get over the anger that I have built-in me and help with the depression. Finding help seems a lot harder than just keeping it building inside of me.
    I started this with an open mind on talking about this, and the more I write the more I feel flowing out of me and what needs to be said for my own mental health. I know things do get better and there are so many people living with it, that have an amazing life but it is a hard thing to wrap my mind around even to this day.

    For me, I make a batch of the cream most times only once a week to fill orders, I have only been making it for the last 4 months, a few people tried it and then I started having others ask me for it. Be clear NOTHING can get rid of our diagnosis, My cream only help the whole outbreak symptoms. I am someone who went from periodic outbreaks (every two to three months) to every time I got my menstrual cycle, then to three weeks out of the month having different outbreaks. Then one day I looked up and my typical blisters that I would always get in the same spot on my vaginal area or on my behind started to be this crazy itching issue. I was going crazy until I realized it was an outbreak as well. I suffered for a long time trying every darn thing! I am really all about natural products (even more now 🙂 so I kept using all kinds of things to stop the itching and then I realized my mixture was working and it calmed the itching and healed up the chaffing I was having and when I even feel a tingle I APPLY and nothing happens.

    Over time the skin can start to tear easier when you have lesions that appear in the same areas, also the ones that are more interior are harder to heal at times just due to the possible bacteria, acidic urine and sometimes soaps become irritants as well to the affected area.

    Yes, I did notice sometimes I would have sex then an outbreak, I don’t know if It was the hormonal changes from being aroused or the friction from intercourse but when I would log my outbreaks and things that was happening on times they would start, sex was one of them. For the outbreaks, I make a batch of the cream most times only once a week to fill orders, I have only been making it for the last 4 months, a few people tried it and then
