    Hey! I’m 24 and have had HSV2 for 3 years now! My outbreaks are still out of control even when I’m on aciclovir! I’d love to chat to people who are in the same position? Or maybe join a WhatsApp or support group ❤️

    I’ve been there when I was diagnosed I was newly single.
    I was with the same person sexually for at least 4 years before being diagnosed so don’t feel bad.
    anyway while trying to figure out dating there was one guy I was upfront and honest with he was nice about it but never heard from him again after that…
    There were a couple guys who I slept with and I didn’t eve bring it up I wasn’t having an outbreak I was on my pills taking them consistently and we were using condoms so thing were really safe.
    Also the 4 year guy and I were not using condoms and still having sex during outbreaks the last year we were together because I was misdiagnosed and he never caught it he’s tested negative every time.
    I think you will be ok to continue having casual sex.

     I constantly get outbreaks and what seems to help is taking certain vitamins daily. This has lessened the amount of outbreaks i get and the length of time. I use lysine, ginger root extract in water, vitamin C, echinacea pils or extract and zinc. I also take valtrex but not everyday. I take 4 lysine 1000 2 a day or if on an outbreak or about to start i take like six 3 times a day. I up the echinacea and ginger root too. Hope this helps

    Hi everyone,
    I just recently found out I have genital herpes. It first started off with symptoms similar to a yeast infection until I started getting sores and blisters. I was so confused I had been with my partner for almost 9 years there was no way I could have herpes. I confronted him and he finally admitted to having an affair with a prostitute at those happy ending massage places. Now because of his betrayal I have to live with this forever. It’s my first outbreak and the pain is excruciating. I can’t believe I have caught this disease because of him. I trusted him and I never in a million years thought he could do this to me. How am I supposed to live like this? No one in my life knows only him I am terrified to tell anyone. My family are strict Christians they will think I am disgusting. Idk what to do..

    Stephanie I’m hoping you share some of the feedback you have received. It’s been 7 years since being diagnosed and my third outbreak that I am currently experiencing is sooooo much worse than my initial one. I also feel like it has spread out from the “infected area”. I’m on valtrex tomorrow will be my third day on medication and I truly don’t see much relief. I am going to call my doctor in the morning but I’m hoping for some guidance and even words of encouragement as I’m feeling really shitty, unworthy, and disgusting right now.

    One thing that my best friend reminded me of is that this isn’t a death sentence. Thought it is a life long disease it is not life threatening. I was diagnosed with HSV2 when I was 24 as well and it has been 7 years since becoming infected. Though it is difficult at times to really wrap my head as to why me? The most difficult moments I feel is when there is an outbreak. I wish I had a magic wand to help us all feel alleviated of the shame guilt and unfortunate disgust but I’m hoping that knowing you’re not alone as I know I am not alone helps.

    Okay, so I have been doing extensive research and find so many different answers on if I can transmit HSV2 to my partner if he gives me oral sex.

    1. He doesn’t give me oral sex when I am experiencing an outbreak or signs of an outbreak

    2. I am on a daily med (valacycolvir 1g)

    3. On the Dr. Kelly fact sheet it states that “Oral Sex: HSV-2 genitally will NOT cause oral herpes in a partner” but other sources say that it is always possible.

    I want to know what everybody’s experiences have been with this so that I can get a peace of mind. Thank you!

    I am so sorry you are you going through the emotional pain. I had a similar experience a year ago when I was diagnosed with HSV 2. The doctor had such a nonchalant attitude about my diagnosis and I was shocked. I fell into a depression and contemplated suicide and totally suppressed my feelings and ignored my diagnosis. I didn’t have any symptoms or outbreaks until I received my test results…probably because I was stressed out to the max. There’s a me two aspect to dealing with herpes. First you have to accept it and then educate yourself and find what’s right for your body. This forum is a great start to get educated and feel supported. You are not alone!!

    I’m 45 years old and needing support so bad. I got checked every year for all STDs and HSV always were negative. In my last appointment 3 days ago my results came back positive and I pretty much fell to the floor and I’ve been crying for three days. I thought I originally had a yeast infection pretty bad but it also felt like a bladder infection. Since getting this news, I’ve been stressing myself out big time. Today I am having a lot of pain in my bladder. My doctor said if I have an outbreak to let him know and he will put me on some thing. I haven’t had an outbreak as of this moment but I can feel the pain all in my urinary track area. So I’m assuming the outbreak might be in the urethra. I called the doctor and left a message saying I was in pain and I’m waiting to be put on some thing. I’m getting more stressed out that I’m not getting a response back because I want to get on medication right now! I’m freaking out I feel alone I told my best friend. I told another friend but I didn’t say exactly what it was but I said it was serious but not life-threatening. I’m having a severe depression and not doing good. I’ve been going back to school online to get my masters degree and my next class is coming up in a few days and I actually want to cancel my class I feel so horrible! I’m a complete wreck fearful of what is to come. I’m sitting in the bathtub as I write this because the pain was so brutal. I can’t get over this doom feeling. I also just had a breast lift a year ago and my results are awful my scars became keloids. I had another surgery three weeks ago to cut some extra skin off. So I’ve been feeling pretty depressed about that and now this …I feel like I just want to crawl in a black hole and not come out.I have off today but back to work tomorrow. I’m stressing about thinking I will be in extreme pain at work. I would really appreciate someone to talk to you right now and I need support.

    Its a good thing for your health that you are told to have a 6 to 12 months break, cos on the long run, it might affect your kidney. I stopped taking suppressant early and switched to natural med which really is the best and without side effect and I have been free from anything outbreaks for over four months I started taking it. You can write me on gracejohnforever@gmail.com if you want to know about it.

    Hi,

    This morning my BF went down on me. Later this afternoon I pulled his lip up (I was just playing) and noticed his whole upper lip on the left side in the inside was covered with fever blisters (there was the biggest cluster I have ever seen). It was not visible on the outside at all and he said he couldn’t feel them at all and that he has never had an outbreak inside his mouth (it’s usually always visible and on his bottom lip so when he feels a tingle and we see an outbreak we never engage in oral for at least 10 days after the outbreak has cleared).

    I have always made all my partners test for STI’s – even do the blood test for HSV-2 and been overly cautious when anyone has had a cold sore outbreak. I am absolutely devastated about this morning as I’ve always been so careful and always made sure to take care of myself from STI’s (or so I thought). I’m freaking out and have so many breakdowns as I’m certain I now have genital herpes from this. With that many cold sores touching me, there is no way I have not contracted it.

    I’m crying non stop and don’t know what to do. I feel dirty and disgusting. I feel as if nobody (if this relationship doesn’t work out) will accept me and will think I’m dirty. I thought I did everything to keep myself safe and this happened.

    Any advice/support will be appreciated to get through this.

    Hi everyone,
    I’m 25 and was diagnosed 2 years ago, an ex of mine was cheating on me and that’s how I found out. Double bummer.
    I’ve been fine for 2 years, up until this morning when u noticed another outbreak. I’ve tried all day to be seen by a nurse but as its sunday I now have to wait until tomorrow.

    I understand the shame, its not nice at all, and I’m often put off dating. The stigma around this needs to be broken!!!

    I have genital herpes 1. I get a lot of breakouts and I’m sure it is hsv1. The outbreaks are terrible but I’m better at managing them.
