  1. I know i messed up πŸ˜” i feel twice as bad as i did when I actuallly got it. So selfish...
  2. I have been taking acyclovir for the past 5 days and only had some slight nerve pain but that was after the initial contact . @hope27 How long should she wait before getting tested is another question too
  3. CAN A MALE TRANSMIT GHSV 1 TO A FEMALE by just sticking the tip in ???? So i recently met someone and things got too heated and i didnt disclose until after the foreplay. Ive felt great since Janurary this year (had H since last year feb) Ive had slight prodrome (slight ingling nerve pain) recently and thought i was getting an OB but what looked like a pimple forming went away... I told her last night and shes been a mess , already talking as if she has it πŸ˜”πŸ˜” any info is appreciated. @mr_hopp @Ishmael
  4. I'm on the same road leading to the same situation. Recently met someone who is just simply amazing and I know I will have to disclose soon ... AAGHH
  5. Heyy @ritzy So I've been living with GHSV1 since last year February but wasnt diagnosed until last year August. My First outbreak was in August , went away completely in about 2 and a half weeks with the help of valcyclovir. My next OB was was 2 months after in October but it went away within a week with antivrial help .Keep in mind I was stressing myself out almost everyday and eating an inflammatory diet ( A lot of sugary drinks and processed snacks as well as dairy) Then I got another one in late december but I was soooo stressed out and depressed I wasnt surprised. That was my last one . I changed my diet, mindset, and started working out more . I don't expect to have one ANYTIME soon . I feel great, I feel normal . Sure the sex life needs a minor adjustment but I'm in a better place mentally than I was BEFORE I got H. I believe outbreaks will be super rare if you just forgive yourself and start looking after your body. Take supplements to help your immune system, get good sleep, eat good food, and just keep learning about the human body and how to take care of it . The minute I get another OB , this whole forum will know lol. Feel free to message me or anyone else here for help! πŸ˜ƒ
  6. I have genital hsv 1 and Ive been asking myself the same thing lately . On a new diet and trying to be super healthy lately (3 months no OB or symptoms and only getting better physically and mentally) So hopefully I can still catch a ride on the BJ Boat when the time comes for me and my future partner ! Any experiences from fellow GHSV positive men would be greatly appreciated 😎
  7. I have genital HSV 1 . Before my first outbreak I was having some pretty sharp nerve pain running down my left leg or just behind my left testicle . After my first OB I've only had 2 minor ones that didnt last as long as the first and I really believe they were stress related. They usually started with this dull itching (like an ingrown hair) in a very specific spot that lasted almost all day until I looked and saw some redness in the exact spot I usually get them . 2 or 3 days of of anti virals and and redness or little bump would be gone . Its going to be really important from here on out that you try and refrain from stressing yourself out . I know its easier said than done , but the only way you're going to over come this is if you start treating yourself right. It's gonna take some learning and some persistence, but if you get a good diet going and start helping your immune system out with natural foods and supplements you'll be fine. Its super hard though for you, I understand. My first 9 months was filled with anxiety and self loathing 😞 Every little pain I felt in my body, every itch , I attributed to H. I gave it WAY more power than it actually deserved! Just keep trying and don't get down on yourself . Treat yourself right from here on out, keep a clear head and in one years time (maybe less) you will be back to yourself or more than likely EVEN BETTER! Screw what other people think, screw what your negative thoughts are yelling at you cause it really doesnt mean shit. Try and get some more sleep pleaseeeeee πŸ˜„
  8. I feel like my body will get used to them if I keep taking them everyday. I just try to look after myself and take them if needed . I just take good natural immune boosters and try and stay a little active. So far I haven't had an outbreak or felt symptoms since late December but there was some major stress goin on then so stay away from that for sure.
  9. No problem at all. These forums really helped me when I first got on. Just scrolling through pages and reading from other experiences, some similar, some not so much. Also supplements have been helping me. Vitamin B Complex, Vitamin b12, FlaxSeed Oil (for omega 3) as well as immune system supplements ( Vitamin D or Mushroom Extracts like Turkey Tail mushroom!) You'll find what works for your body , until then its time to soak up some info, find what works for ya and hopefully within this next year, you'll see some improvements πŸ™‚
  10. Omg YES. So I contracted H in February last year and I wasnt diagnosed (and didnt know) until August last year. From Feb to August I had a sharp somewhat radiating pain that would either be right under my left butt cheek, behind my left testicle, or down the left inner thigh. I didnt know what it was but I learned it was just the early stages of the virus manifesting itself in your sacral (lower part) of my spine/nerve system ! The good news is that I havent felt that pain AT ALL since last year September and we're already 3 months into the new year. I work as a mailman so Im always putting my body through hell but I started taking getting acupuncture and stretching daily and Im telling you that sharp pain is but a memory! Its what you make it m honestly. This can ruin your life or actually be a galvanizing moment for you to take super control of your body in ways you really never thought you would. Physically and mentally I feel im at a better place than I was before I even got H! I thought it would be impossible but I chose not to let this define me and I still have a ways to go (make working out a habit , cut out all processed foods and corn syrup treats , etc.) Take this time to really appreciate what you still have. A fully functioning human body that is still capable of ANYTHING. Love yourself and I promise you, this will not be a problem! Plenty of info on this site and lovely people. Though they may not be on as much as they are on other social media, they are here and will answer your questions! Dont lose hope and have fun on your journey!!! ESSAY DONE lmao
  11. After a year of having Genital HSV 1 i recently found out my brother has it orally and he also gave it to his wife in the genital area. They have had 2 children since so I think its safe to say their sex life is back where it used to be . They've improved their diets and always have anti virals handy for whenever they feel somethin weird about to happen. They still have spontaneous bouts too (like morning stuffs)Its not like they have to sacrifice 2 goats and chicken and call to the ancestors before they do the do either . There will be an adjustment period no doubt about it but if you just push through it and keep a positive attitude and lifestyle I'm sure you will be able to feel as happy as you were before this happened. Hopefully someone with more first hand experience can chime in cause Im single as a pringle
  12. Stress is the main ingredient to re occuring out breaks . That and poor diet . I try not to rely on the meds too much , I dont want my body getting to used to it. I would go to the gyn though. Anything to make your body and mind feel more at ease and at peace. I found my diagnosis to be a wake up call for me and each day I'm learning things about my body and just trying to take care of this human body I have been loaned .
  13. Yea it took me about 8-9 months to get better mentally. I only recently told my parents like last week and I realized I should have just told the people I love immediately . You might even find out someone has it that you never expected . I felt like you did though. Depressed as shit, thinking about nothing else but the fact that my life is over and I should strap a can of disinfectant spray to my ass so I can sanitize my trail and not give it to anyone else. The earlier you can stop being your own enemy and just accept it for what it is, the sooner you can actually crack that smile you thought you never would again. Get a good diet going, do things that make you happy, find new things that make you happier, live the life you thought you completely wasted and you'll see. Dont let a little bit of herpes ruin a perfectly good life you can still have . I never thought I would be typing things like this considering how much I hated myself for what went down . Then I realized I can still have kids, a lover, any job I want , and I got over the fact that I prob shouldnt eat a whole 5 dollar bag of doritos in one sitting . Take your time to heal but dont delay it. cry it out, educate yourself on the topic a bit more, learn some more stuffs bout your body and before you know it BOOM... youre back and ready to kick some ASS
  14. Usually stickin your choo choo in a cave (mouth or underground tunnel) that has HSV 2(Man or woman) will do the trick . Im not sure how I havent been kicked off this site already for my inability to give a straight answer that doesnt leave someone more perplexed than they already were but hey , Im still here . Someone please save this person from my awkward urge to use humor in every aspect of life
  15. I read somewhere on this site that it does take a few weeks for it to show up in blood , thats why its not the best type of test to get for H . The swabs are def more accurate for sho. Hopefully someone that doesnt have the mental capacity of a brillo pad can give you a more knowledgeable answer
