Funny.. told by my mother ( who died when I was 9 ) , to be careful about VD and make sure you put toilet paper on public toilets before you sit down. Feeling guilty about not being there when she passed away, I kept hurting myself in ways I was unaware of, throughout my life, ie hardly eating, avoiding sex, feeling dirty even though I really wanted sex and rejecting my own body even in masturbation. At 29 years old I contracted herpes with my second partner when I decided the time was right to have a child. I fell pregnant and have raised my son alone, he`s now 13 years old and I`m so grateful for this experience and his life. Now at 44, I take this experience as a lesson in listening and learning from the people who love and care for your health (my mother), giving myself pleasure, and opening the door to allow others to love me. I realise I chose this particular way ( getting herpes, feeling dirty ) in my mind as a way of balancing my guilt with a wonderful experience. [47126]

to all the girls out there that r scared to tell ur boyfriend, or husband.... please not be afraid to tell them,they need to know the truth.. if u dont tell them and have sex during an out break u will give it to them, and that is not fair to them so please dont be scared to tell your loved ones about herpes.. i remember telling my husband for the first time .. we were dating at the time and when i told him he cried with me and said that i will not let u go through this alone..and he has never left my side. if your boyfriend/ husband really loves u or cares about u he will do what ever it takes to help u get through this. so just be safe and protect yourself the best way u know how so u wont give it to your partner, and if your other half/ boyfriend gets all mad and walks out on u then u know he was not the right guy for u.. may God bless u and keep u safe!!!

well when i first found out that i had herpes i was 25 years old...when the dr told me yes that bump i found was for sure herpes, i just broke down crying!!!! i wanted to find out who i got them from but the dr said that i will never know... so i just have to learn to forgive and let go and let GOD handle it. i have been blessed i have not had an out break in a long time.. until this year 2011.. i noticed it comes on when i am really stressed out, really sick, or not keeping myself healthy. so i have learned to stay calm in stressing times, and do my best to stay healthy,by take my vitamins everyday, working out everyday, eating right. i am just so blessed to have the most understanding husband in the world he knows about me having herpes and he never thought twice about leaving me or anything.. he has been by my side from day one.

Before we got married, my now husband fooled around and contracted the virus from the woman he slept with. She did not tell him she had the virus, he stupidly, did not use a condom. I married him. We have had two children, both free from any herpes symptom. My initial outbreak was extreme. And I have not had any outbreaks since. I believe it is because I smoke pot. I do not take antiviral medication. Only pot, and I do not have outbreaks. Haven`t since that initial day. I was naive. Ours has not been an easy relationship. And I am thinking of leaving. I feel like I will be on my own for the rest of my life, but if anything, this site has proven to me, that should you meet someone, be honest; we know how devasting this has been on our own lives, how could someone not be honest, and inflict that on anyone else.

I`ve never actually had an outbreak. I`ve always arranged to have myself and a potential partner blood tested to screen for it and other std`s before doing anything beyond kissing. Before sleeping with 5th partner test came back positive for me. Had previous partner rechecked (assumed he had cheated on me) but his results were still negative. I have absolutely no idea how I could have gotten this. Always used condoms until I was married, only quit when we decided to have children. I have been honest with all partners, usually telling them about it on the first date and none of them were bothered by it. I`ve kissed a lot more people than I have slept with and suspect that I managed to contract type 2 orally from kissing, even though my doctor said that is impossible. There is so much misinformation I honestly have no idea what to believe. This did not cause a problem when I had my children. I took Valtrex 2 weeks before my first son was born, just in case. I attempted to take it before my second son was born, but between the insurance taking forever to approve it and him deciding to arrive at 37 weeks, I never got to take it. They are both fine though.

I have type 1 in the genital area. I contracted the virus by engaging in oral sex with my husband while he was getting over a cold sore. We were unaware that it could transmit the virus. When I had the initial outbreak I wasn`t positive what it was after trying to diagnose my symptoms over the internet. And unknowingly made it much much worse trying to fix it on my own. The best advise I could ever give is to educate yourself! and know your body. If there is ever anything abnormal make an appointment with a doctor immediately so you can begin medication as soon as possible. [47116]

It took me about 6 months to a year to forgive the man who did not tell me he had HSV-2 and continued to have sex with me. I vowed never to withhold that information from any new partner. It is very difficult to do. It hurts to reveal that information. However I would rather see someone appreciate my honesty then live with lies. I am hopeful that things will work out okay for me. I am in a relationship now (3 weeks new) and my boyfriend knows about my HSV-2. We are talking about healthy ways for us to be intimate without having sex. We also talk about the risks and how they compare with our connection to each other. It helps that I believe that God has a plan for me. Just take things day by day. [47112]

Experience...
I am currently experiencing my first episode and it has been traumatic. I walked away from a 8 year monogomous relationship in hopes to find ME and focus on myself. The first person I became sexually involved with outside of that relationship was a friend I had known for over 10 years and trusted. Because of my prior monogomous we had unprotective sex 3 times. After the 3rd time I experienced burning when I urinated and itching. I assumed it was nothing until days later I became violently ill with flu symptoms and then very fatigued and missed a week of work. I went to my OB who had seen me throughout my past relationship and she nearly teared up when she told me the news. The emotions are heavy and my heart is burdened. My new life of self discovery is now disrubted with a terrible mistake. Currently I have pusling pains down the back of my legs and severe uncomfort. I am reading it is important to tackle the emotional stress my body is feeling and hope to do that through acupuncture and meditation. And can only hope that I can find peace and acceptance again within myself. [47103]
