Experience...
I was contracted with this i guess back to like 7 years ago, Its not even any sexual intercourse , just touching each other, and the next 3 days i felt something strange down there. Its like something warming up inside. It was holiday season that time, and i have no doctor to see. I have to bare with it for like a week , b4 i can actually went to doctor. I went to have a urine test, it was clean, test for chlamidya also came out clean. I was so afraid for the result of H, but what can i say, shit happened, and i was so sad, i really dont know what to do. Up to now, it was like seven years ago, i still feel upset everytime i think about it. I have very rare OB, but i still feel so hopeless. The person that gave this to me was my ex, i have never had any thought dat she hav this. I called her , and told her what happened, and she denied at first. Its useless to point finger by this time, but i feel like its not fair, i am not a player at all, and i have never thought that i could got this. Now i am in a serious relationship with a girl that i love so much, and i have never told her this, i am planning to wed her, but i am so afrain dat this will make her sad and leave me. :-( , i just want her to know that i am not a bad person, i am just unlucky.

Experience...
I contracted Herpes Type 2 from my when we married. He had two little lesions that he failed to notice. I had no idea he had Herpes. First breakout was very painful. Several bad break outs the first year. Fewer and fewer break outs over the years. Haven`t had a breakout in years. All my babies were born vaginally. We avoided passing the virus back and forth by not having sex when one or the other had a lesion (He had Types 1 and 2) That worked for us. ! He deserted me after three decades of marriage and left me with nothing except Herpes. . Being 58 with Herpes 2, I hold little prospect for finding someone to share my life. I met someone, but he had no interest after he found out about my horrible "disease." I think Type I is worse than Type 2. It`s on your face for the world to see! It`s really ugly, but that`s my opinion. I would really like it if entertainers would quit making fun of people with Herpes 2.It`s rude and it;s not funny. Do they make fun of people with cold sores or HPV or HIV? [51288]

I discovered in january this year i had herpes during my first outbreak. My exs sister had it and i explained the symptoms to her. She told me i had it and to get checked out. my.appointment came during an ice storm so they were closed and my lesions disappeared. Just discovered tonight there was a blood test and i plan to do it. im thinking im having a recurrence now but still unsure as its almost unnoticeable. i prostituted a short time and am unsure of who passed it. when i discovered it. i told my boyfriend. sadly it was too late and i had passed it along. however he appreciated my honesty and we are engaged now. my advice to all is if you have something knowingly, own up. you could save someone. i wish he had told me. i would have been much more careful. at 18, i have it forever and so does my fiance. hopefully they find a cure of some kind. #ownuptoherpes #cureusall [51280]

Experience...
Just got diagnosed with HSV 2. Developed eye pain, fever, nausea, chills and vaginal pain, itching and difficulty urinating. I initially thought it was a urinary tract infection but after going in for an exam, she found lesions that were consistent with herpes and my pap smear came back positive for HSV 2. My only partner for the past two months has HSV1 but has never had any breakouts and swears that he cannot have HSV 2 because his body built up an immunity to it through having HSV1. My doctor is fairly convinced this is my first outbreak given how painful and dramatic it was. But if my partner doesn`t have it then how did I get it? Aren`t the toilet seat rumors just...rumors?

Experience...
I usually have terrible flu like symptoms for weeks to days before an outbreak. These include headaches, sinus pain diarrhea, aches and pains, and fatigue. My initial outbreak in 1992 landed me in the hospital with a high fever, vomiting, inability to urinate due to excruciating pain, and lesions in my throat. Luckily, I only have outbreaks 1-2 times per year [50334]

Experience...
I had sex with the man a few times before and we always used a condom. The time I contracted genital herpes was when he was performing oral sex on me. I believe he got too rough and I began to bleed. I think that`s how I contracted it. A few days later there was sores and pains. A test at the gyno confirmed it. I was devistated. I`ve just had the one occurrence and it`s been almost a year and a half. It`s been more of a mental disease for me. I think about it everyday and it makes me so sad. My life is defenetly different. I`m not the same person. I haven`t dated since and I am scared too. I think nobody will ever want me but I know they will eventually. I just need to put myself out there. Everyone`s stories are helpful and I`m so sorry for anyone who is going through this. We are not alone though!! Hang in there everyone :/ [50316]

Experience...
My herpes experience usually occurs during sexual intercourse, so I sustain from sexual contact. I have outbreaks in my mouth as well as in my genital area. I believe it causes other symptoms like, thick saliva, and cold like symptoms at times. It is a stigma that keeps me alone and without companionship because I hate to divulge that I have this virus. Most men do not like using condoms so I like to refrain from sex. When I contracted this virus I knew right away and I contracted it from a known stripper who was infecting black women in the Los Angeles community back in the 90`s. I thought I contracted HIV because of the terrible symptoms like swollen lymph-nodes, and soar on my out vaginal area, that came with the contraction of this virus. [50314]

Experience...
I contracted Hsv2 orally from my husband. I am now having alot of problems. My tongue is swollen and sore and my fillings are falling out of my teeth. I have trouble trying to eat and drink. When I told him that I got it all he could say was sorry he ruined my life and has moved on to another relationship. He has had this condition for 13 years. [50311]
