g10 - October 1

Im a female.. I had intercourse once last August.. And after that, i started developing bumps, and a dry, burning sensation down there. It came and went and i saw in total about 5 doctors various times.. All, assured me it was nothing more than stress or folliculitis!... Then i decided to go once again, they cultured it and .. last week i was given the awful news that i have genital HSV 1.

Take a deep breath. I am going through the exact same thing and one thing I can tell you is most doctor's are not educated on HSV 1 and STDS or have the resources for counseling.

The nurse was floored, since i had seen so many doctors and that none thought it would be herpes. Also, since i have never even had a cold sore, she was surprised that my simptoms were the way they were, and not with a fever and the other typical symptoms.

I know what you mean I acquired mine from oral sex with a partner who had no visible sores and no idea he had oral HSV 1. It's not the end of the world.

If you had a culture and it was positive, you don't need a blood test to confirm.

Hang in there and keep your chin up. It does get better.

 

unitedcooking - October 1

I agree with SeBeca... it will get better and chances are you will never have an issue after this time. I had the exact same thing happen years ago and once the initial episode was over, it never came back and I never had another problem.

It sucks, but certaininly not the end of the world or your sexual life by a long shot. Keep your chin up!

At this point it's hard to tell if you are one of the few who have frequent hsv1 genital recurrences or if it just so happened that you have hsv1 genitally and you were actively shedding the virus on the day you were tested.

 

bluechick - October 15

Have they also tested you for yeast infections and bacterial infections at all these appointments? What about other std's? or were they doing the ole look and see and declaring it's nothing routine?

 

sebeca2007 - October 15

Hsv1 is considered the "milder" form of genital herpes. Not milder as in less painful but milder as in less recurrences. In about 50% of folks who have it - they never have another recognizeable recurrence of the virus. In those who do - the average is 1 additional recurrence the first year and then 1 ob every other year.

 

Oblivion - October 18

Only a small percentage of folks have ob's more often thankfully. Hsv1 genitally sheds less often than hsv2 does so usually just avoiding sex during obvious symptoms is all you need to protect a partner. Make sure your partner gets tested for hsv to know their own status though too.

 

ginger - October 18

You can still contract hsv2 which would most likely result in more frequent recurrences. If your partner has hsv1 also - then just avoiding sex is all you need to do.

Definitely treat this with a round of antivirals just to see if it makes you feel better. You can take a wait and see approach to deciding if you think suppressive therapy is warranted or not.

Hey, I am right there with you. Just got dx with hsv 2 and I too when through yrs of oh, you are fine, fragile skin, tears? No biggie, not herpes. One day I got tired of tears, itching, redness and irritations that came and went so after an exam, which, of course the Nurse Practitioner said, you are fine, is not herpes, just skin cuts. I said "Give me the blood test. I can't take it anymore." It came back hsv 2 pos on the herpes select. Trust me, I am right there with you. Let's all help and support eachother, eh??

HELLO, My name is Garrick I’ve been struggling with Herpes since

forever and I’ve tried so many things and wasted so much money

trying to get rid of it. However, nothing seems to work for very

long. It seems as though my skin only temporarily accepts the

remedy, then harshly rejects it a few days later. Sometimes it

gets so bad that my skin dries out or becomes too oily, which I

then go onto another new and different solution. I’ve talked to

a doctor, but they weren’t much help either. So one day i was

searching for a possible cure on the internet and i saw a

testimony by a lady and how she was cured by a doctor with

herbal medication. So i also contacted him and thank God today

am cured by Dr Erazua herbal medicine. You can contact him and

he will guide and protect you on how to use the medicine Contact

him via dr.erazuagreattemple at gmail.com or reach him on facebook

with his username, ERAZUA KAKUTA LCUKY or reach him on or

whatsapp him +2349060424123.... his website

I was infected with GENITAL HERPES VIRUS in 2013, ever since then i have been searching for cure everywhere because i was feeling so uncomfortable.i am Ashley by name,I have been dating for almost 7 years until i contracted Genital Herpes from my Ex-boyfriend. since then I became very sad about the whole situation, always going online checking if i could get a cure to Genital Herpes, then i came across so many testimonies.Due to my seriousness and eagerness to be completely cured, i became a victim of fraud after contacting several so-called herbal doctors i was referred to.I lost a lot of money but i didn't stop searching for a cure.Then one faithful day,i came across a testimony of a lady saying that she got her Genital herpes cured by a GREAT HERBAL DOCTOR she called Dr. Aramide by contacting him through his email address and including his telephone number.And she advised anyone with GENITAL HERPES or SIMPLEX HERPES to contact the herbal doctor for HERBAL CURE. I contemplated for about 4 hours whether or not to contact him.then something inside of me told me 'NOTHING GOOD COMES EASILY'. I then contacted him through his email and told my problems to him. He told me all the things I needed to do and also gave me instructions to follow, which i did properly.Just within the 14 days of drinking and applying the herbal medication he sent to me through DHL delivery service,i started seeing changes i went to a medical doctor for check-up,i was so happy when the doctor told me i was no more having GENITAL HERPES VIRUS,it was all tears of Joy from that moment,i never thought HERBS could cure HERPES and if i could ever meet a GENUINELY GREAT HERBAL DOCTOR. I'm so grateful to him. Now i'm happily married and i am completely free from GENITAL HERPES VIRUS,i introduced a family friend having Simplex Herpes virus to him,He called me and told me he is also cure completely. I promised to share my own testimony like that of the lady on the internet.Friends, If you are also struggling with GENITAL & SIMPLEX HERPES or need cure to deadly diseases/viruses like..
