    This is exactly me at the moment. I need to be able to at least kiss. With suppression med and no outbreak, seems reasonable to kiss, right????

    Hi, I just got diagnosed this year with Hsv2 the initial outbreak was just uncomfortable and I felt so low for a while then I kind of just forgot about it and went about as normal you know worklife then boom quite a bad outbreak and ofcourse I read online feeling low and under the weather are ofcourse running up symptoms but it totally slipped my mind and now I’m sooooo uncomfortable, stopping myself from crying because I hate that I was stupid enough to put myself in this position, I just keep feeling very low because is this my life now after 2months I end up in uncomfortable pain scared that I’m going to spread it by accident to another part of my body incase I’ve not washed my hands good enough even though I know I have.

    Honestly, I think men (in general) are shit when it comes to herpes. My HUSBAND didn’t tell me. He lived his life for 30 years as though he didn’t have it… who knows how many women he infected before me. Imagine the delusion? The ego? He never even followed up with the woman who gave it to him when he was 21, could have prevented her from further spreading it. People need to hold each other accountable and that is uncomfortable but necessary so don’t apologize. I think of it a lot like other sexual deviations and predatory behavior, if you don’t speak up, you are allowing the behavior to continue and someone else will be next. I’m not sure about all this rhetoric that says it can lay dormant… sure but how many women on this forum showed signs within weeks of exposure… I think that is more likely. The dormant thing smells rotten to me, like some legal shit that is used so people can’t be held accountable. Again, it may be true, but what is the likelihood? The medical industry is also to blame here… acting like this isn’t a big deal, like everyone has it… but it is worse for women as far as I can tell. We have more genital tissue and the virus can ‘attach’ to our periods and surface more frequently. Just look at this forum? Do you think if men were having outbreaks once a month the medical industry would just shrug their shoulders? My husband is a regrettable example here… he even suggested that my angry reaction was unwarranted. That I would come to see things differently eventually. Like it’s my problem cuz I’m just an hysterical woman making more out of something than it is. He told me ‘Life is messy’. You know what’s messy? My fucking crotch now on a regular basis. I’ve mostly learned that… people don’t like to feel uncomfortable and talking about STDs definitely makes them feel uncomfortable.

    Hello, I seem to have at least minor, sometimes major itching constantly even with no outbreak. Just doing my best to not scratch or I am in trouble. I use Aspercreme with lidocaine when it gets bad. Hopefully it would help you as well.

    Does anyone else have insane itching down there even when there’s no outbreak ? I’ve been really itchy for months and I’ve had thrush tablets and all sorts, I don’t have chlamydia so the only thing I can put it down to is if herpes comes with itchiness but I’ve done my research and can’t find anything on it so I was wondering if anyone else has experiences bad itching even if they weren’t having an outbreak ? I also have yellow discharge but it’s not thick like thrush so I’m so confused

    I am a 61 year old woman who had her first outbreak of genital herpes ever; after testing negative for STDS 30 days ago. The outbreak occurred 4 days after having sex with a man I have been seeing for 16 years. Is it mostly like I got the virus from him.

    I am confused, struggling, embarrassed and ashamed. He didn’t seem angry or surprised when I told him what was going on.

    Hi,
    I was recently diagnosed in June with a first outbreak of HSV-1, and haven’t had a outbreak since. like you I have feared contracting herpes all my life and when I got it I was in complete denial. I still am having a hard time coping but I honestly have been feeling healthy and have had no other symptoms of the herpes virus since my initial outbreak. I recommend you read Kelly’s book it helped me immensely with coping and treatment for the virus.
    I do recommend telling you partner it will relief alot of stress and anxiety for you. I finally told my best friend/partner and he handled it better than I thought he would although I was prepared to be rejected, I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t tell him and he became infected.
    Im going through the same thing that you are. Remember that you are not alone, we are not alone.

    Just a warning, this is a rant.
    The infection outlives the infectors patience. Eventually, 6 months down the road, after the initial heartbreaking drama, guess what? You wake up one day and it’s still there. But now all the emotions you have are just on repeat. Everything you say, you’ve said before. Why can’t you just get over it? Move on. Maybe someone should scream that into your vagina. Do you think the virus would understand? No matter that someone you trusted betrayed you, these outbursts (brought on by more outbreaks) are uncalled for and unhealthy, not helping anyone… What a fucking joke. Fuck the world. Fuck anyone who knew they were infected and slept with someone anyways and then didn’t have the stamina to say they were sorry for the rest of their fucking life.

    No real answers here but I feel your frustration. Mine had that discharge during my first ever outbreaks. Was DX with BV put on the same mess but mine went away. So I’m sorry your not finding relief as fast. Keep us posted with updates

    Hi VCRJ,
    6 months ago, my husband and partner of 7 years confessed that he had HSV-2 for the last 30 years but only told me after I showed him early stage sores.
    I had the added experience of having outbreaks for years prior that all went misdiagnosed as other things because he failed to disclose until there was no way to deny it any longer. I can relate to your decision as I have made the same one. I think you may have dodged a bullet here. To be honest, I wish I could have the second chance that you seem to have been given as far as your negative results. People with knowledge of their infection should not be having sex if they are not honest enough to disclose. It’s cruel, not to mention illegal in some places. I personally don’t buy the idea that there is a fine line on disclosure. A person should have autonomy over their own health and not disclosing robs them of this. It also arrogantly presumes to know what is best for another person.

    So sorry about the behavior of your doctor, many acts that way and make one feel dirty. I feel you should seek out a professional who is also a specialist in herpes, he will also help with the symptoms and outbreaks. Just try to reach him on his WhatsApp on +2348148717513.

    Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with herpes 1 many years ago. The outbreak was swelling and pimples that broke open and pain. I never got an episodes that bad again. My question is have you ever got an outbreak like the first one again? Years later I’m have a really bad one and I’m wondering if I have been exposed maybe to herpes 2 since I recently started dating again after a divorce. Thanks

    Hi Melissa, I’m honestly inspired by your positive attitude. I was diagnosed about three weeks ago and reading your post made me feel better about the diagnosis. You were so fortunate to not have had an outbreak thus far, I hope for your sake that you get to be asymptomatic for life. I did not get quite that lucky, however, it was nothing that I couldn’t handle. Thank you for the positive attitude, I think that was some thing I really needed to read right now. Hope you’re still doing well!

    I’m so sorry your doctor was so unhelpful and judgmental. I had my first outbreak three weeks ago and I was absolutely devastated and so shocked by the news. You are not alone and you are not less than or unlovable because of this diagnosis. I’m not a fountain of knowledge on this Illness yet I just wanted to drop by and let you know that this community has your back. I hope you’re doing OK, and again I’m so sorry to hear about the awful experience with your doctor.
