  1. I just recieved a negative swab. I’m having blood tests done not only to check for HSV 1 and 2 but for shingles as well. I’ll have results Wednesday.
  2. How many here have gotten a false negative culture for HSV 1 and 2? Did you then get diagnosed by blood test?
  3. Hi guys, I just found out Tuesday of this week that I have genital herpes. I am a divorced woman of five years and will soon be 52 years old. I have had four sex partners in my life and apparently one of them was a very bad mistake. My physical symptoms are much better now, which is good, but I woke up this morning in tears. I feel like the part of my life where I will have a companion or spouse is over now. I have two grown children, and two grand children and they have their lives. I raised them to be very independent. The problem now is I don’t feel like I’m worthy of being dated or pursued. I really want love and companionship in my life. I just feel like going forward I’ve been tainted. I realize also that sex really is not the most important thing in life but it does bond a couple. I just woke up feeling that no one will ever give me a chance if I tell too soon and if I wait I feel like that’s deceitful. Until now I’ve been mainly focused on the physical symptoms, which were horrible, and now I’m just left with the emotional devastation. Any insight on how to deal with this would be great. I just needed to get this off my chest. Thank you for reading.
  4. I just have a question. I was just diagnosed 3 days ago. Life has literally been hell until I was diagnosed and started treatment. Valtrex causes me dibilitating headaches, nausea, and vomiting, so my doctor changed me to Zovirax. My question is how well does suppression therapy work? My doctor is vey optimistic that I may never have a flare up if I do this. She said if I do feel one coming on I can up the medication to prevent it. Anyone have this experience? Thank you
