    Rejected, my first time

    Because presumably you care enough about that person to be honest with them and let them make their own choices about their health and sex life. But you'd rather let someone risk getting herpes than have an uncomfortable conversation. Cool. Also, you haven't had an outbreak in 7 months. Great. But you know that most people that get herpes get it from a partner who isn't having an outbreak, right? Or is reading up on the condition and how it's spread also too much to ask of you?

    Excuse it however you want. I find it reprehensible and I feel sorry for the people you are lyng to.

    All the things that draw people to you are still there. And millions of people have this condition and still find love and happiness. There's absolutely no reason you can't be one of them.

    If you waited until after you already had sex with someone to disclose then their response should be to break up with you. I know mine would be. That's plainly immoral and irresponsible.
  5. It is extremely unlikely. While you can get HSV-2 on your face, it accounts for something like 1% of oral herpes. More than that, since you already have it on your genitals, after having it for about three months downstairs you will develop antibodies that will make it almost impossible to spread to your face. If I were either of you, I'd suggest going to town on each other not worrying about it. I'd also suggest getting medical advice from medical health professionals and not this, or any other, internet forum.

    “Just a skin condx” < NOT

    I think that not only will you find that lots of people in their right mind have accepted it, but that those that have are mentally healthier than those that haven't.

    Warts are also the result of a virus. They are also a skin condition. Those are not mutually exclusive terms.

    Genital warts and herpes symptoms

    A red rash with red spots under the testicles can be just about every kind of rash there is. There's not a lot to suggest herpes here. Get an IGG blood test to know.

    Genital warts and herpes symptoms

    If the symptoms that are making you think it might be herpes appeared before 48 hours after exposure, it's not herpes. It takes at least two days (more commonly a week) for herpes symptoms to appear. None of this sounds like herpes to me.

    How did I get HSV? Was I drugged?

    Ugh, that's so awful to hear that you're going through this. It's easy for me to say "What you should do is ABC." but ultimately you should do whatever you think is best. I feel like telling the authorities and letting this guy know that what he did is assault is a good idea. He seems to think he didn't do anything wrong, and that's terrifying. Also, I think the idea of talking to a counselor is a great idea.

    Itchy every day but no visible symptoms

    Sores should not be constant. There should be weeks/months at a time where you don't have symptoms. I've never heard of an O lasting half a year. What have doctors told you you might have? Have you ever been prescribed anything?

    Whatever else, you were sexually assaulted. The fact that you woke with this guy on top of you is 100% not okay. You certainly did nothing wrong, but I do think you should contact authorities. Regarding the source of your HSV, if your boyfriend tested positive for HSV1 and gets cold sores and he gave your oral sex on a regular basis, then yes he probably gave it to you. That doesn't change the fact that this other guy assaulted you though.

    Sounds like jock itch.
  14. But that blister was swabbed and came back negative, right? When are you getting tested again? Western Blot?

    Have your symptoms been consistent over the 12 months? I ask because herpes usually occurs in outbreaks. Having symptoms for 6 months straight is not normal.
