    I was diagnosed two weeks ago. The most horrific pain ever. I only found this site yesterday. I wish I had found it sooner you shared some good tips. I was given antiviral meds to take for 10 days other than that was not given any advise. I am a 49 year old woman, my boyfriend of 5 years has HSV1 but never mentioned HSV2. (i never asked) assumed he would have told me if he did. After my doctor did a swab and told me what they thought it was I was horrified. She took blood to see if this was new or something I had antibodies to. We found out It was in fact a new exposure. When I told my BF about it he was not surprised but said he did not know he had it?
    We have gotten past the diagnosis and feel our relationship will be fine. However, this outbreak has been horrible after two weeks I am still uncomfortable. I missed a week of work and have not been able to go back to the gym yet. Any advice on when I can expect to feel better? I am also terrified of having outbreak again? Will I know it is coming? Should I take meds to prevent or only take when one comes on? My doctor gave me a 5 day course of antiviral and said if I get another outbreak to take ASAP? Is this something that is going to happen all the time? Any way to prevent them? I suffer from panic attacks and anxiety already this has only made my disorder worse. Any advice that may help ease my troubled mind would be helpful.

    I was just diagnosed two weeks ago. This has been a very painful two week journey for me both physically and mentally. When I read you feelings I could relate 100%. How are you feeling now? I hope you have been able to push back those negative thoughts and get to feel normal and sexy again.
