    Can't stop crying....(New HSV2)

    Still not a single OB since my initial one and I did ozone therapy. Mentally, I don't want to get retested yet because if my antibodies didnt go down I will be upset but not having any symptoms for 19 weeks has been great.

    How often are your outbreaks

    I take vitamin C 2x a day, monolaurin once a day, vitamin d, vitamin e, oregano oil, echinacea, propolis, probiotic, and a lysine blend. I also did ozone therapy 31 times and Ultra Violet Blood Irradiation.

    How often are your outbreaks

    Hey, I know I am late to this post but I wanted to shed some light. My cheating ex who is the father of my child knowingly passed this virus on to me. I have done A TON of research and that will only drive you crazy because everyone is so different. I know people that have HSV2 that only ever had one outbreak (I know 2 of these people, one has gone 2 years without one now, the other 10 years). I know someone that has HSV2 that had TERRIBLE outbreaks the first year and now hasn't had them in years. I have HSV2 I had one mild outbreak and now I haven't had another and it's been four months so far. I have done a lot for treatment and my health. I don't take antivirals though. I even know people that got diagnosed and then seroconverted (meaning they tested again and it no longer shows in their labs). Everyone is COMPLETELY different. The body is a beautiful thing and if you take care of your body, take immune boosting supplements, eat whole foods, and don't drink a lot of alcohol, you'll be okay.

    "My herpes giver" vs. "I caught herpes"

    This is a really interesting question. I do think saying you caught it sounds braver. Yes. However, I definitely think it depends on your personal situation and how you feel about how you caught it. I have been with one man (the father of my child) in the past four years. He cheated on me, I asked him to get tested, he told me he did and did not have anything. The truth is - he did get tested but he tested positive for HSV2 and knowingly passed it to me then tried to use the virus as blackmail so I would let him have shared custody of our child - who I have been solely responsible for since the day he was born. My son's father is also a recovering addict. So there are a lot of chapters to that book. I feel as though I was given herpes. I am someone who is extremely type A, anxiety ridden, etc. he knew giving this to me would crush my world. I am also an extremist about my health. As soon as I found out I had it I went and got 31 rounds of ozone therapy done, ultraviolet blood irradiation, I take tons of immune boosting supplements everyday, I stay VERY clean, wash everything constantly, etc. I would probably feel differently about what happened to me if it were from being risky or if my partner was unaware.

    Can't stop crying....(New HSV2)

    My doctor told me it can possibly eradicate the virus. I had one OB, did ozone, and I have been free of outbreaks for four months now. I'll keep you posted. I also do not take antivirals.

    Can't stop crying....(New HSV2)

    Hey, sorry I am just now seeing this as I don't come on here too much anymore. It's been 3.5 months for me and 0 symptoms since ozone therapy. Google "ten pass ozone therapy" to get an idea of how it works. Check out Second Nature in Nyack, NY - they write articles on it and it's where I got mine done.

    Casual sex and disclosure

    You can sue if someone knowingly gave you an incurable disease. I almost sued my ex for it but I didn't want it to become public knowledge that I have it. I was told I could definitely sue him though.

    I Disclosed for the First Time

    Thank you!! I did, I am truly blessed that he came into my life.

    Feeling overwhelmed in disclosure

    My son's father did not disclose to me. He slept with other women and contracted HSV-2. He knowingly passed it to me. I will not speak to him anymore. We have not seen him in months. He did not give me BASIC human decency. According to my therapist (who is a social worker), I could have charged him with sexual assault. I definitely thought about it. Having HSV-2 is the worst thing that has EVER happened to me. Your wife does not deserve the anxiety that HSV causes. She did not do anything to deserve that. You also do not know if she will have symptoms or not. Some people get painful, awful, recurrent symptoms. It is not your choice to make. It is her choice to make if she wants to be with you after what you did.

    Scared

    Jenn, if he doesn't understand and appreciate your honesty - he is not worth keeping around.

    I Disclosed for the First Time

    Thank you so much. I did 31 rounds of the ozone therapy and 1 round of UVB. Since my diagnosis and therapy I have not shown any symptoms - it has been two and a half months so far.
  13. Hey, everyone! I haven't been on here for a little while because I am trying not to think about my diagnosis too much. However, I wanted to shine a little light on your day. I am seeing someone for the first time since being diagnosed. I have been going on dates with him for about a month or so. I really like him and can see myself being with him. I finally decided to tell him about my diagnosis. I want to mention (2) things that I think are really important. (1) Before I told him I wanted him to get to know ME. I didn't want to disclose right off the bat because all they know about you is that you have a virus.. that's not a good start. (2) I wanted to get to know HIM. I wanted to know if I would be interested enough to become sexual with him in the future so I could see if it was worth sharing my personal information. I also wanted to know if he is someone I could trust with that information. I could not take it anymore so I decided to go ahead and disclose to him. I was honest, told him how I got it, told him some facts about HSV (85% of people our age carry the antibodies, 87% of people don't know they have it because they're asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms) and that I am not having recurrent symptoms, but he can still get it from me. I told him the supplements I take to combat it, how I did a lot of ozone therapy and UVB therapy, and that I do not take antivirals. I told him I could become symptomatic in the future. I am unsure at this point. I asked him if he had any questions for me. He asked me if I got it before I had my son (no) and he asked me if I knew who my ex contracted it from (no). **Be knowledgable about the virus so if they have questions for you - you can answer them.** He told me this was not a deal breaker at all. He appreciated my honesty and wants to continue to see me. He said he likes me for who I am. He said I'm a great mom, I have my life together, and that I didn't do anything wrong. I was with a man who wasn't loyal to me. He said he wouldn't fault me for that. A couple months ago I would cry every single day because I thought no one would ever want to be with me because of this.. I want you to know people are out there who will look passed your diagnosis. People ask this question a lot on here so I want to say this - No, I did not have to date down. In fact, this man is a lot better than probably any man I have ever dated. He is smart, handsome, kind, and succesful. I am telling you this virus is a blessing in disguise. You will really know who likes you for YOU. If you are feeling sad or alone.. know it's not the end of the world. Know it's not the end of your dating life. You will find someone if you want to find them.. or they will find you! Be well, friends.

    What does this look like to you??

    Hey, honestly that doesn't present like HSV at all. It is not grouping, not blistering, no fluid. Possible irritation or allergy if coming and going so quickly.

    Struggling

    Hey, @Newme I am 31 years old and a single mother. My son's father knowingly gave me this virus. I am approaching 8 weeks of knowing now. It does get better. I am a type a, anxiety ridden, perfectionist. Needless to say this diagnosis crippled me to my soul. I spent $5,000 on ozone therapy, Ultra Violet Blood Radiation, and I take a massive amount of supplements every day. Not to mention, I use a freshly bleached towel every day to shower, I changed all of my shampoo, conditioner, and body wash to organic with tea tree oil/coconut water. My diet is also gluten free, all natural, high lysine content, and mostly organic. I will say this - my first symptom was mild. I have not had any symptoms since. I have seen multiple doctors and received their opinions on how this virus works. Take care of your body and mind. It will repay you. I know many people who had one OB and then never had another one. I can understand how you feel, trust me. I have been there and some days I am still there. At times I am still nervous to bathe my son. I wash all of our clothes separately now. However, the anxiety does decrease as times goes on. I am here for you and I am in the same boat.
