I have this male friend who I really like but I dnt no how to tell him. He nver once n his life had an std.we have talked bout std but I still have said a word I am so scared. I just pray in hope its not there I so want to get a test again n it say not postive for herpes, but also afraid it may say other wise. What should I do because I may loose him or may get hurt. I care so much for him but don`t want to hurt his life. We do use comdoms but he want oral sex on me. I always stop him. But he think um not pleasing him or me. [47347]

My partner told me approximately one week ago that he had HERPES...I was devasted not that he had it but I was affected as well...I truly believe from reading the symptoms that I was the carrier but have no idea who gave it to me...My partner is such an understanding person and we care alot for reach other...I know within my heart that I would never be with another man...I`m just mad at the BASTARD that gave it to me...I know GOD is able to help us through this ordeal...I don`t feel my life is over but have learned that you cannot trust anybody when it comes to sexual intercourse...I did get tested for all the other STD`s and they all came by negative...but the blessing in this is, it could have been worse...A LESSON LEARNED...

I have had herpes about 30 years and it seems to have gotten worse in the last 10 years. I haven`t read anything like this before. I am now experiencing lower back pain, mild fever, migraine headaches, tiredness, and muscle aches. The symptome last about a week. I am taking acyclovir (1 gram) 3 times a day...doesn`t seem to be helping that much. [47315]

I am 22years old and just found out I have HSV 2 about a month ago Ive only been with 2 guys with out condoms which one of them are my babys father and the other one was a guy ive kown for six years and got with him when my son was 4 months I was tested for this twice when i was pregnant cause i didnt trust my babys father. so i got it from the other guy and when i told him i had this we had only been together for 7months and he seem to take it weel at first said we`ll work through this and we will be together so we dont have to explain this to any other partner. after all that was said and done we are not together because he stole from me so my emotions have been everywhere. I`ve accepted that i have gential herpes but its just really stressful because i really dont want to explain this to people i meet in the future [47314]

When I first met this guy, he could have told me. We used a comdon but it broke. After that we never use one again. After waking up to an empty bed one morning, I wondered why..... What did I do, what did I say, to make this man just up and leave me like this. A few days later he call me up on the phone( after he skipped states) and told me why. At that point I wanted to give it to any and everyone who didnt give a fuck about theirselves. Now its been 3yrs. I have affected so many people, to which I feel so sorry about; some of these men bought it on themselves( playing games with the comdons). 4wks ago I had a baby girl, she`s healthy. Her daddy lied to me and told me he was divorce, plus he played trick with the comdon( he doesnt know). People today dont care about their health, all they care about is a good feeling. All I can say is, Thank God I dont`t have AIDS/HIV...... I might have to take meds for the rest of my life; but at least I`m going to live. I have change my whole life around, I don;t do the things I use to do. When I do meet someone I like, I;m going to tell they what I have. I wish that person would have gave me a choice. [47313]

I am 49 and have been in a monogamous relationship with a man for 7 months. He had one outbreak 16 years ago and no symptoms ever since. I was in 20 year marriage and this is my first sexual relationship since the marriage ended 3 years ago. I am in total shock and have had an aweful experience. I thought I had a bladder infection because my vagina burned badly when I urinated. Went to general family doctor. She ended up doing a vaginal exam as well as bladder and treated me for bacterial vaginosis prescribing antibiotic, Metrodyoxine (something like that). I did not get better and my vagina got worse. I was feverish and body ached. A week later I visited my GYM. I had lesions inside my vagina and developed blisters outside. When urine hits the blister like lesions, it burns like hell! My doctor said with all my symptoms he could tell it was herpes. 99 percent sure. I am devastated. I don`t blame my boyfriend though he feels responsible. I made the decision to sleep with him w/o condom. Now, I have to learn to live with this condition. One thing that I found that helps is a bath w/ apple cider vinegar. one to two cups in enough water to cover your privates. [47312]

I discovered that applying ice directly on affected/itchy areas at early stages prevents outbreaks. It really works. Share this. Are there any scientific research on this? I don`t know, but my guess is the cold puts the virus to sleep. I use this trick for oral herpes after a long day in the sun, instead of taking medication or cream. I just rub my lips with ice carefuly. It reduces the swelling and I don`t have outbreaks or blisters on the lips. After struggling with genital herpes for a few months with repetitive outbreaks I remembered the "ice trick" and tried it on my genitals right where I felt itchiness. I didn`t have any outbreak since. Maybe it will work for you too! [47309]

My experience was very horrible and traumatic. I`ve been in a monogamous relationship for about 3 years now. So last month I found out I had herpes type 1 but it was in my vagina area. I went to see 2 obgyns, male and a female. My male dr said it was a very bad yeast infection and that day took me a pap smear which was absolutely painful! So he just prescribed me meds to treat a yeast infection, by this day I had been suffering with a yeast infection, fever, the very painful blisters, and a UTI for 3 days and didn`t even know it. So that night didn`t sleep at all with the sharp pains and complete discomfort. So the next day I broke down to my brothers girlfriend and said I was in terrible pain and needed to see another dr to give me something for the pain. So thankfully she knew of a place and they took me in right away. This female dr told me right than when she looked that it was herpes and took a culture of it to make sure. She than gave me a numbing cream and pain killers. Two days later called me with my results and said that I did have herpes and that she was going to put in a prescription in for me right away but didn`t inform me of anything. I didn`t take the news well, I was just thinking the worst didn`t know whether to blame my bf or my ex, I felt so betrayed and an emotional reck! So I went to pick up a copy of my results to take to my other dr, when I gave it to him he said "oh you don`t have the bad herpes you have type 1 you got it from oral sex, it`s not type 2 the one that you`ll have for the rest of your life you just have to be careful when u get a cold sore." I also broke out with a blister on my finger when applying the numbing cream. The female dr just told me sorry I should of told you to apply it with something and my male dr when I told him about it he said he had never seen herpes on the finger that it was something else. So as you can see I`m still very uninformed about herpes type 1 and I`m trying to educate myself by researching it on my own. As you can also see my dr`s aren`t the greatest, the male dr was like whatever like it`s no biggie and female dr was like oh no you have herpes and made me feel like I was gonna die! Neither gave me proper information and I didn`t know what kind of questions to ask! It`s been over a month since I found out still makes me cry to think of everything I went through because nobody seems to understand the trauma behind it. I`m just glad I`m not alone and I have this website to go to! Thank you for taking the time to read my experience, I appreciate it! God bless! With love,   Jay [47303]

I have been married to my wife for 10 years. we have been together for 15 years. During those years I have never had any form of sexual contact with anyone other than my wife. I have 2 children). I woke up one morning to what i thought was a heat rash or friction rash between my scrotum and inner thigh. by the next morning I was awake at 4 in the morning with this burning rash. I went directly to the drug store once it was open and bought some antifungal cream, thinking it was jock itch. By noon the rash had become raised and did not look well so I went to the Dr. and he took one look and said Herpes. I am now waiting for live culture results... I am really shook up by this! The fact of the matter is, if I do have gherpes then i have had it for over 15 years with no outbreaks, or my wife gave it to me. And I am positive my wife did not cheat on me....so if she had it it layed dormant in her..... The worst part of the whole situation (besides this burning) is that it has the potential to ruin a persons marrige....Thank god my wife has never given me any reason to doubt her. I sure hope she feels the same way. [47302]

I found out I had herpes after being with my boyfriend for almost a year. He knew he had it and was scared to tell me. I know he didnt mean to give it to me but he never used protection so he never protected me from it either. Now that I have it I kind of see where he was coming from. How will I tell my next partner I have it? Who will accept me like this? When is the right time to tell them? I would of wanted to know at the begining but I know I wouldn`t of gave that person a chance so how could I expect someone to accept me? So me and him are still together trying to make it work. We know staying together is the easiest way to get through this. Neither of us have many out breaks and maybe 1-4 times a year. I`m learning to deal with it but it`s still so new to me and it`s going on 3 years... [47300]

I have had herpes on my lip since I was a kid, but I don`t know if I contracted type 1 herpes(below the belt) from inadvertently touching my lip and later touching below the belt(seems unlikely, but u never know). If I contracted the type 1 herpes from being sexually active, I dont know who I got it from because I was single, and had a couple 1 night stands. I wasn`t sleeping around with a lot of guys, but I`ve had about 11 partners in sex from 18 yrs old to 24 yrs old. I only get a break out from both types(upper lip and below the belt) once or twice a year, so it sucks that I have this, but I try to keep a positive attitude because things could be worse. My advice to women and men is to GET CHECKED AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR!!! Even if you have no health insurance, go to the clinic. Getting a clean bill of health is a Great feeling, and if you find that you do have an STD, then you can be pro-active in telling the PEOPLE you plan on sleeping with that you have an STD. PLEASE KEEP YOUR HEAD UP and REMEMBER IT`S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD!!! [47299]
